El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
TGA Premier Golf and Tennis (TGA), a leading youth sports franchise company that specializes in after-school enrichment programs, has developed two strategic business partnerships that will impact the growth of its franchises while growing the sports of golf and tennis.
TGA has partnered with the Southern California PGA (SCPGA), one of the largest sections within the PGA of America – the world's largest working sports organization, comprised of 27,000 golf Professionals. The other strategic partnership was with the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), the world's oldest and largest association of tennis-teaching professionals with more than 15,000 members worldwide.
Both organizations recognized TGA’s innovative school-based activation model through franchising, as a way to grow both industries by creating business ownership and job opportunities for its members, and increasing participation in both sports while enriching the lives of youth along the way.
“The relationships we have developed with both the SCPGA and USPTA will put golf and tennis professionals on the forefront of significantly growing and activating new players for the future in their respective industries,” said TGA founder and CEO, Joshua Jacobs. “We are very excited about the growth of our scalable business model and having the opportunity to not only create job opportunities, but also changing the landscape of how we increase participation in the future.”
TGA launched its innovative franchise business in 2003 with TGA Premier Junior Golf, which developed the infrastructure at the grass roots level to introduce the game of golf to the masses through after-school enrichment programs in schools nationwide. In 2012, TGA expanded its franchise offering with TGA Premier Youth Tennis in partnership with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) supporting its “10 and Under Tennis” initiative and increasing participation in the sport of tennis.
