Tennis South Africa is looking to capitalise on an increase in tennis interest in South Africa, with the launch of its #JoinTheClub campaign.
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, tennis participation has grown across the country, with Tennis SA seeing a record 23% increase in membership numbers in the past 12 months.
Looking to take advantage of this increased participation, TSA is inviting South Africans from all communities across the country to #JoinTheClub.

“Tennis is an individual, non-contact, outdoor sport and so offers a safe way of exercising, and having fun, in these pandemic times,” said TSA CEO, Richard Glover. “Our staff, provinces and partners have worked tirelessly to keep the sport going through Covid-19 and we are excited to warmly welcome new members to this beautiful game. We won’t stop here though, as we launch our new campaign #JoinTheClub, encouraging tennis lovers from far and wide to venture to their nearest club to lace up, start serving and having fun! To find out more, visit www.tennissa.co.za. Members enjoy a host of benefits, including discounts on tennis clothing, equipment, accommodation and other special deals from some of our partners.”
Tennis South Africa has plenty in the pipeline, as it looks to grow the sport in South Africa.
That includes the recently-announced plan to bring Rafa Nadal Academy training camps to the country, a new broadcasting partnership to be launched shortly – which will see local tennis return to our screens – and a host of international events set to take place in South Africa later this year.
