Tennis Europe Chief Executive Officer Olli Mäenpää said; "We are very proud of this new edition of the Report, which offers a complete snapshot of the state of European tennis. The Report is essentially an encyclopaedia for tennis in Europe and is an indispensable tool for anyone involved in the industry, being the only available source of much of the data contained within. I would like to thank the many staff of our member nations that have helped us with the challenging task of collecting the data in recent months."
The European Tennis Report is the result of a biennial survey of Tennis Europe’s constituent national tennis federations conducted between December 2014 and May 2015 in association with sports industry research leaders SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS INC. The two organisations are now cooperating on a new edition of the ‘Next Generation Survey’, which looks at the consumer behaviour, aspirations and lifestyle habits of elite junior European players.
