[tennisbiz] Re: Operation Spec.
You are taking on a very good project that I wish all clubs would take
on, and that is a professionals guide for professionals. Yes we have
organizations to help us with their ideals for what a tennis
professional should be but club owners and managers should do the same,
because each club is just a little bit different.
Here are a few of my suggestions for standard protocol.
I believe that a club is filled with professionals and so should our
work area, the courts. A system that works great for keeping two ball
hoppers with each teaching cart. This is done by having the two ball
hoppers stacked on top of each other so that the handles for the ball
hopper are sticking the bottom of the other, they are then fastened to
the teaching cart (basket and lid) using a carabineer or a lock. This
will make sure that balls, ball hoppers, and teaching carts are ready
for each and every lesson. All though it is an extra step, it makes a
big difference when time to teach a lesson. You or any of your
professionals will be to teach a lesson with a loaded cart, and two ball
hoppers for picking up.
Another aspect that is member focused is how to address and display the
results of club players. Establish either an announcement wall or an
email newsletter that is sent out to each of your members. And speaking
of this, I have found with the low cost of email, establishing an email
newsletter reaches out to most of your players, especially the younger
If I can think of any others I would send them your way.
