Strong, And Getting Stronger

By Peter Francesconi

We at Racquet Sports Industry are proud to be a part of the Tennis Industry Association. And now, we’ve taken steps to expand our partnership with the TIA — and as a result, you’ll enjoy greater coverage of industry news and events.

For those involved in the tennis business, the TIA is one of the most important organizations, providing key industry research, programs, products, and services that all help to promote the economic vitality of tennis in the U.S. The TIA serves as a unifying force for everyone involved in the tennis industry. And RSI, which is published 10 times a year, is the world’s largest trade publication dedicated to tennis and the racquet sports industry.

Starting with this issue, each edition of RSI will contain a dedicated TIA section highlighting the important industry efforts to grow the game, including related research and technology innovations. These features also will be catalogued and archived in a dedicated, searchable TIA section on RSI’s website,

The result will be to put the TIA and grow-the-game programs front and center in the minds of tennis industry professionals. In short, we, along with the TIA, will be helping you to stay even better informed about the things that not only affect your business, but affect tennis participation, too.

“RSI is a natural fit to share important news about the industry and all our partners’ collaborative efforts to help grow our sport,” says TIA Executive Director Jolyn de Boer. “We look forward to this expanded relationship with RSI, as the official publication of the TIA, in helping to deliver the industry news and also the focus on tools to keep our industry healthy and businesses vital.”

Our relationship with the TIA always has been strong, but we’re excited to be building on that relationship even more. We’ve always supported the TIA and its important mission to unite the tennis industry to increase participation in the sport. And now, we’ll be a much more important ingredient in that recipe.
