The 6th annual Business Tennis Forum agenda has just been announced. This year there is a focus on some of the key issues identified in the 2019 Tennis Club Business Report. The event, sponsored by BLM, continues to grow in importance as a unique opportunity to learn from best practice in other industry sectors and provide direct engagement between tennis providers (clubs and tennis venues) with suppliers (the tennis industry). The event is supported by the LTA and it provides the opportunity for delegates to raise issues and questions on the current LTA strategy ‘Tennis Opened Up’.
