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.

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.
