How will myTennis improve the popularity of tennis?Tennis competes against a lot of fun outdoor sports and traditional sports in South Africa and seems to have lost its “cool” factor. Due to lack of funds of provincial bodies and tennis clubs, tennis on an amateur level often suffers from the lack of professional organization, communication, effective marketing and social fun! Online networking is an easy way and forward-thinking web solution to connect tennis lovers on a professional and social level while giving the club new income generating opportunities, such as sponsorship and advertising!
What can myTennis do for your club?myTennis offers a standardized website for your tennis club, which is easy to update, an interactive platform for club members and an effective marketing tool for the club and its tennis coaches. Each club website is linked to the myTennis network and provincial website syndicating the latest news, league fixtures, results, ranking, events etc.
What are the benefits and opportunities for your club?
- Simplified communication channel between Province and clubs via content syndication (e.g. myTennis website or province updates are syndicated directly to club websites)
- More online marketing exposure for Tennis and your club- viral and cost-effective marketing (Search engines, social media, newsletters)
- Interaction between clubs or amongst club members (e.g: social braais after league games, comments, pics)
