I’m joined in this episode by Tim Russell, CEO of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. The ITA is the governing body of college tennis, overseeing men’s and women’s varsity tennis at all levels — NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community College.
To date, 45 tennis programs have been cut since the beginning of the pandemic — a number that jumped from 28 when Tim and I recorded a week and a half ago. I asked Tim why he thinks tennis has become an easy target and what the future of college tennis looks like.
We talked about what coaches can do to put their sport in the best decision to thrive and the resources ITA offers its members to that end. I was really impressed with the “Health Index” they’ve created for their members, and I encourage other sports to adopt the same approach.
