Tennis Round has teamed up with its first sponsors to support local tennis leagues in top tennis cities, including San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, Denver, Austin. Winners of each league will get prizes from the sponsors to reward their efforts and accomplishments.
Some of the league sponsors include tennis instructors, clubs, and retail stores servicing local communities:
- Zach's Tennis, Bellevue, WA
- AV Performance Tennis Club, Bellevue, WA
- Racquet Training Center, Seattle, WA
- Sturtevants, Bellevue, WA
Others include tennis coaches offering their services over the internet as video lessons and podcasts:
"We often get emails from tennis coaches, who thank us for creating the site and send their students to Tennis Round to find practice partners", said Alex Marinov, Marketing and Business Development Manager at Tennis Round.
"New players also join the site after talking to their racket stringer, like Zach at Zach's Tennis and Gill at Sturtevants, who send them to the site to find a match or demo their new racket. We thought it's natural to extend the league sponsorship opportunity to them", added Marinov.
League sponsors have pledged different prizes - racket stringing, over grips, video analysis, use of ball machine, access to online tennis videos, clinics participation and even free club membership for first place winner.
Players usually have to go to the local business to pick up their prize, which gives them an opportunity to check out the retail store or tennis club, and learn about the tennis equipment and programs offered there.
The emphasis is not on the monetary value of the prizes but on the relationships they can start. After winning something, players will have another reason to visit the local store or tennis club to claim their prize.
Picking up the prize can lead to a new introduction and a new conversation - string tension, racket weight and balance, group clinics, private lessons, how the pros are doing and so on. There is always something to talk about in tennis.
The next Tennis Round league season is slated for end of January 2012, likely with more participating cities, even more players and hopefully more sponsors.
