2018 Survey Results

MYTH BUSTERS

Myth: Pickleball brings in more revenue to the Center than Tennis

Fact: An average week of indoor court activity in the winter looks like this:

  • 80% of court rental and program/lesson revenue is tennis and 20% is pickleball
  • 445 unique tennis players play in a week and 239 unique pickleball players play in a week

 

Myth: Indoor courts 1 and 2 are for medallion holders

Fact: Medallion holders do not have any particular courts reserved for them

 

Myth: Steamboat Tennis and Pickleball court costs are high compared to other centers

Fact: Many facilities in the U.S., as nice as ours, charge an initiation fee or member fee and a court rental cost. Indoor facilities around the country are usually higher when all costs are considered.

 

Myth: Pickleball is growing and Tennis is waning

Fact: Pickleball is growing – the center saw a 26% increase in PB court revenue from summer 2017 to summer 2018. Tennis remains steady and strong at our center for past 10 years.
