There are a variety of ways to promote your venue and get more people involved in playing tennis. We’ve highlighted a few examples below to get you started, so see what works for you.
Tennis Tuesdays in partnership with Nike has been designed to encourage more women in their 20s and 30s to play tennis. Run by Accredited LTA Coaches, it is a group-based session, held weekly on a Tuesday evening and specifically designed for intermediate players. It has been developed based on the needs and wants of the customer, and feedback from the players has been extremely positive. Most venues typically run Nike Tennis Tuesdays between May and October, but increasingly many are continuing throughout the year.
The expression of interest form to run Nike Tennis Tuesdays is now closed. If you have been successful, you will hear from us by February 2017.
Great British Tennis Weekend
Great British Tennis Weekend gets more people playing tennis through offering free opportunities to play. As a tennis venue, you have the opportunity to be involved by opening your doors and providing sessions for people of any age, ability or background to come and play some tennis.
If you are looking to host and run a Great British Tennis Weekend event at your venue, please get in touch with your local regional LTA team, who will explain more about how to get involved and what support is available.

Social is a great way of driving people to your venue website or keeping members up to date with the latest news and pictures from any events you run. If you have the resources to run one or more social channels, you have the power to engage with your existing and potential members on a more regular basis to build better relationships.
Many venues have had success when partnering with other local businesses or clubs – for instance you could promote your venue and programmes in a local coffee shop or partner with a local school to encourage and build their PE program. Look at popular local attractions and see how you can work with them together to benefit the local people.
