[tennisbiz] Re: Letter of Agreement for Instructors

From: Bill Thompson <>
Date: Fri 13 Apr 2001 11:47:41 EDT

Best bet for sample would be to contact USPTA @ (800) 877 8248 via phone or
request info in writing via fax @(713) 978-7780. Paul Waldman, USPTA
attorney, has written articles re: contracts in USPTA ADDVANTAGE magazine
including some very basic sample contracts. USPTA National Office will be
happy to provide.
Letters of agreement/ written contracts are the third wire(i.e. potentially
due to differences in area practices, independent contractor vs employee,
owner reluctance to potential liability of putting it "in writing", etc.
Bottomline: there are as many different types of letters of agreement/written
contracts in the tennis business as there are stars in the sky. The very best
situation arises where employer and tennis instructor can agree on basics,
put together a letter of agreement/understanding and work diligently to
understand the diffficulties of each others duties and responsibilities. The
owner has equity - some cash and some sweat. The tennis instructor has
primarily sweat - both physical and mental. The owner who understands the
difficulty instructors faces day to day dealing with the public providing
instruction, counselling, advice, etc is a gem. The tennis instructor who
recognizes that without the physical facility, cash investment and " sweat
equity" of the owner, he or she would not be teaching, is also a gem. To find
gems of equal brilliance working together creates a blinding light all tennis
players will follow.
