With second-quarter numbers just in, industry growth for the first six months continues to show increases in racquet and ball sales. These latest figures con-tinue the bullish streak that began four years ago. In addition, research shows that dealer and consumer confidence have grown, the number of new players trying tennis for the first time has increased, league play has grown, and pro tournament attendance is up. The efforts to grow the game at the grassroots level have also intensified with all areas of the industry working closely with our industry partners and USTA.
