Tennis Health Index Shows 18.1% Growth
The Tennis Health Index, which uses five key elements to measure the health of tennis, has increased 18.1 percent in the U.S. over the last six years. Published by the TIA and USTA, the Tennis Health Index includes three participation surveys that use different methodologies, combined with measures of ball shipments and court activity.
The five elements collectively provide a more accurate view of the state of tennis participation in the U.S. “This is a great indicator that our industry’s collective efforts are having a positive impact and getting more people on the court,” says Kurt Kamperman, the USTA’s chief executive of Community Tennis. From the baseline year of 2003, which has an index of 100, through 2008, the Tennis Health Index shows steady growth up to 118.1.
