The Myrtle Beach Tennis Center is a wonderful facility - great employees and excellent hard courts. The junior program is one of the most successful in the area. However, despite these positives, the tennis center is maxed to capacity. We need additional hard courts. To meet demand of players in the area, we also need to invest in clay courts. I've included some key statistics of tennis membership, tennis centers, and tournaments below. Please sign this petition in support of our cause and grasp the attentions of city and county councils!!! Tennis is the ONLY and FASTEST Growing Traditional Sport 2000-2011 – 46% growth Tennis facilities, the key providers of tennis and the core of tennis program delivery, have maintained stability despite the turbulent economy.
