The SCTA is extending an invitation all Southern California’s enterprising teaching pros. We are making a big push to bulk up our young adult programming in 2017 and we want new coaches to get involved. Sip ‘N Serve is a high-energy tennis clinic for young adults (ages 21-39), followed directly by networking and drinks for the players. It’s proven to be very successful in engaging a relatively disengaged group of tennis players, something we deeply care about here at the USTA. It has brought new members into tennis clubs, bulked up local league teams, and built stronger customer bases for teaching pros. If successfully executed, the program really is a win-win-win. A win for you, a win for the player, and a win for the USTA.
Here’s the thing: Sip ‘N Serve is all yours. You choose the days to run it. You set your pricing. We’ll even give you a grant to get you started. All we want is that you make tennis players happy in your local communities and that you collect player contact information and help us shuffle them into other USTA programs.
We are inviting enthusiastic tennis coaches to get the full Sip ‘N Serve experience on November 20th at Billie Jean King Tennis Center (1040 Park Ave) in Long Beach. SCTA staffers will run you through your typical SNS class – filled with games and friendly competitions. Then, we plan to wine and dine you. The hope here is that you will see how great the program is and that you will want to bring it to your facility immediately (or at least in 2017).
The clinic is free and you are welcome to invite others to join us. Please RSVP by Thursday, November 17th. To RSVP, simply email Madeline Segura (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name and the facility you teach out of.
If you have any questions about the program, feel free to contact us. We look forward to seeing you on the courts!
