Rising Trends in Racquet Sports: A Swinging Success

Projections include a continuation of analogous growth for the next three to five years, solidifying racquet sports as a flourishing industry. 

Currently, there are approximately 24 million tennis players and 15 million pickleball players. Yet, the appraised latter figure may be compromised due to the diverse platforms and park-centric nature of pickleball. Regardless, the number of racquet sport enthusiasts nationwide is estimated to be around 40 million. 

Utilizing a conservative growth rate of 15%, instead of its current projection of 20%, the number of individuals engaging in racquet sports is still expected to surpass 60 million by 2026. 

The profiled demographic of tennis and pickleball closely aligns with that of golf, creating a promising path for clubs to diversify their offerings and attract new clientele. An escalated number of golfers embracing pickleball as a complementary activity has magnified the demand for tennis and pickleball facilities.
