Date:3/19/2009

According to Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association (SGMA) 2009 Sports and Fitness Participation Report

HILTON HEAD, S.C., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- According to data just released by the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association (SGMA), Tennis is the fastest growing sport in America among individual traditional sports with an increase in participation of 43% from 2000 to 2008. According to the SGMA, tennis was one of only six sports to experience participation growth exceeding 40% from 2000 through 2008. Tennis is well ahead of other traditional sports like baseball, ice hockey, gymnastics and football, all of which suffered a decline in participation during the past eight years. In the last year alone (through December 31, 2008), Tennis experienced a 9.6% growth in participation.

The SGMA study is the latest in a series of reports and studies that have cited the extraordinary growth for tennis. In December, the Taylor Research Group (TRG) reported that tennis participation reached a record high of 27 million players in 2008, more than any other period in the past 15 years. Sales of tennis racquets and balls have both also increased significantly, most notably, an 88% increase in the sale of youth racquets from 2003 through 2008, according to the TRG report.

"The SGMA study is a clear validation of all the hard work and commitment that our industry has put into the sport," said Jon Muir, president of the Tennis Industry Association (TIA), and General Manager of Wilson Racquet Sports. "We've focused not only on reinforcing our already strong base, but at the same time, we've developed new, innovative programs to bring players, of all ages and skill levels, into the game."
