WTS: Sport Experts

Founded in 1973, WTS started out as a tennis company by providing racquet sports management services. Over the years, we have diversified to also provide swim and sports programming for a wide array of properties throughout the world. Sports programs and activities are an essential part of any club, community or hi-rise residential development as they bring people together and provide an outlet for their competitive desires and athletic goals. They are also a critical part of the potential success for a freestanding, for-profit athletic facility.
Our tennis, swim and sports experts are the best in the world at teaching, coaching and developing creative programs for members, guests and residents. Tennis and swim activities and programs are designed and implemented for all levels including beginner, intermediate and advanced. Progressive programming and instruction is offered so that participants can improve at whatever the sport is that they play. We also offer extensive junior programs and activities for both tennis and swimming.

Why should I offer tennis, swim or sports programming?
These types of activities and programs are an integral part of most clubs, communities or resorts. By offering these services, you will enhance the ability to develop and retain significant numbers of members while offering both members/residents and guests a truly diverse and energetic array of programs which will keep them coming back to the facility time and again.

How do I best determine what types of sports amenities and programs should be offered?
Dedicating sufficient space that is devoted to providing tennis, swim and sports programs is the first step. This can be accomplished through a needs analysis/feasibility study. Whether it is the number and types of tennis courts, fields, pools or trails, the right mix and amount of space needs to be defined well in advance of the design or construction process. It is also important to ensure that the facility will have enough participants to make participation levels from your members, guests or residents viable. This can be accomplished through creative programming and continuous promotional techniques.

At what types of projects/developments does WTS operate tennis, swim and sports facilities?
We manage these types of programs at private and commercial clubs as well as for resorts and residential community developments. WTS provides qualified Tennis, Swim and Sports Directors and staff as well as a wide array of enjoyable instructional, social and competitive tennis and swim programs for both adults and kids. Our services in this area have been instrumental in increasing utilization of the swim and tennis facilities, improved retail sales and heightened member and guest participation.
