Women Tennis Coaches Study

You are invited to be a part of a ground-breaking study for and about women coaches/teaching professionals in tennis. Regardless of your coaching status (currently coaching, retired, quit, former coach, aspire to coach), your insights about recruiting, retaining, and recapturing women in tennis are valuable! The study is being conducted by the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport at the University of Minnesota in partnership with the USTA. Please take this survey to share your insights. It will take you ~15-20 minutes to complete.

Women’s Sports Teams and Digital Media Communication

Do you currently work in a communications, marketing or community relations role for a professional women’s sports organization in the United States? You are invited to participate in a study to help us better understand how women’s sports leagues/teams/organizations use digital media platforms. You will be asked about your responsibilities as a staff member, your organization’s objectives for digital media use, and your organization’s initiatives in digital media communications about social issues. We are inviting you to fill out an online survey which will take around 5 to 10 minutes to complete. The next stage of the study will include interviews. If you are interested in participating in the interviews, please complete the survey first or email the researcher directly.
