“We wanted to build a system that helped people play tennis – any time, anywhere - without the discovery and scheduling hassle”
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 03, 2011
Tennis Round, a new company focused on recreational tennis, has deployed a nationwide system for tennis players to contact each other and schedule matches, and cataloged nearly all public tennis courts and private tennis clubs in the United States. Players can drag the map to find nearby tennis facilities and click a button to invite another player.
“We wanted to build a system that helped people play tennis – any time, anywhere - without the discovery and scheduling hassle”, said the company founder Alex Marinov. "Many tennis facilities, including NYC Central Park Tennis Center, still rely on paper-based message boards to help players get in touch. There has to be a better way to find a tennis partner", added Alex.
The site has registered players from 182 cities so far and helps them:
· Find a tennis partner at suitable skill level
· Send and receive scheduling messages
· Find tennis courts in 4,200 cities
· Connect with other players at their club
· Get tennis court details – location, number of courts, indoor or outdoor, lighted or not, public or private (free or paid)
"We have about 450 active players at the Racquet Training Center in Seattle WA, but they don't all know each other", said Johann Tan, General Manager. "On Tennis Round they can see who else plays at the RTC and schedule matches with them."
"At AV Performance Tennis Club in Bellevue, WA we run a variety of tennis clinics and high performance programs", said Director and Head Coach Alex Vlaski. "We introduced Tennis Round to our members so they can connect with each other and practice what they learned during the tennis lessons and drills".
