Almost anyone can play tennis. If you’ve got someone to play with, you can have fun.
As long as I can remember, I’ve played tennis... goofing around with friends, playing socially, and then competitively at the pro level. I’ve taught tennis, and organized everything from groups of friends to professional events like the National Championship.
When I became President of my region's tennis association, tennis programs and events almost always took place at private clubs, even though over 80% of players play on public courts. So we focused on growing city and school programs; even taking steps as simple as helping people find courts. After a few years, tennis participation rates—on public courts and private clubs—grew to the highest in North America.
Yet years later still the #1 reason people say they stop playing tennis is:
“ I don’t have someone to play with.”
So together with a team of internet veterans, we worked to transform my Juump idea to reality.
- a novice or experienced player, a coach or a student,
- an organizer or a joiner, on public or private courts,
- or just looking to meet new people and have fun...
Juump makes it easy to meet people and play more. See you on the courts!
