How to Grow Tennis in Your Area

Are you looking to play more tennis, but just can't find anyone near you to play with? Global Tennis Network (or just GTN) was created to solve this exactly problem.

No longer will you need to endlessly search online for other tennis players, post messages on forums or sign up for expensive tennis tournaments. GTN gives anyone in the world all the tool they need to create their own tennis community, or as we call them "networks".

Networks organize all you members, events and news into your own online website. With a network, you can create your own tennis ladders, leagues and tournaments. You can also create events and keep members up to date with your own news feed. To see one in action, check out our demo network here:


Everything in that demo network can be set up in less then 5 minutes, and is free to start!

But how does a network help you find someone to play tennis with?

Once you create a network, you can have all the local players invited to join your network. Players will also start finding your network while searching for tennis courts or other players. We have seen many network grow to over 300 members in less than a year. Once a network has a few members, you can start running your tennis ladders, leagues and tournaments.

A tennis ladder is a great way to play more tennis and meet other players, and is by far the most popular feature on GTN. In a tennis ladder, players challenge each other to a match. As matches are played, players move up and down in rank. At the end of a tennis ladder, many network run a tennis tournament with the top players to end the season.

You can also organize network events. You can even have repeating events such as "Saturday Round Robin at the High School". This is another great way to get players together to meet and play more tennis.

As you can see, with an active network, you will find yourself playing as much tennis as you want!
