Does your club have a website?
Research has shown that large numbers of people use the internet to research products and services before making a phone call or visiting a shop. This can result in a significant competitive advantage for organisations with a well-constructed, up-to-date website.
If you club does not yet have a website, or would like to move your current website over, Tennis Victoria can help by hosting your site on tennis.com.au. This service is provided free to affiliated clubs. Once set up, your club manages the content of your website and can update it yourselves. An instructional and training website has been setup to help you keep your site up to date.
Your website can be as simple as just listing your contact details and a brief outline of what activities the club is involved in, therefore needing very little maintenance. Alternatively you can include photos, latest competition results, membership information/forms, advertising social events, etc. It all depends on the capabilities of your club.
