Formed in April 1998 to promote the growth of tennis, the TIA has evolved into an elected trade body of leading UK Tennis businesses charged to:
As the voice of the Industry, the association is actively supported by specialist manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, trading companies, businesses and other interested parties involved in the sport.
Members range from multi-million pound corporations to individual entrepreneurs, all of whom care and depend on the future of our game.
Dedicated to making a real difference, the TIA brings together a unique synergy among normally competitive businesses willing to pool resources for the betterment of the tennis market as a whole.
UK Tennis Industry-wide estimates indicate that the business-of-Tennis in this country represents an annual Turnover in excess of £1.5 billion pounds.
Individually, members represent massive investment in the game at all levels, yet indicators show the market has declined 10% in value and 8% in volume in recent years.
Collectively within the TIA, members are working to reverse these trends by actively energising the industry in support of efforts to grow participation in the sport and increase the market.
Now based at the National Tennis Centre, the TIA UK is at the heart of British tennis and working closely with all British tennis stakeholders ranging from the governing body to the coaching organisations.
The way therefore to directly exert influence on the game is by being part of the Tennis Industry Association (UK)
