Platform Tennis Press Kit

Have you seen any articles recently on platform tennis in your local daily? The weekly? On the six o'clock news? Why not? Because press coverage requires a pitch. Before the 75th anniversary season ends, consider making an effort to get some local press.

The Promotion Committee has created a press kit to make the job easy. Included in this kit are sheets on the history of the game, the rules, the players, the businesses; even copy-right free photos for members of the media to use.

HELP SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THE JOY OF PLATFORM TENNIS
Submitted by Jacki Brown, BulletWorks Platform Tennis

Have you seen any articles recently on platform tennis in your local daily? The weekly? On the six o'clock news? Why not? Because press coverage requires a pitch. Before the 75th anniversary season ends, consider making an effort to get some local press.

Coverage leads to interest. Interest leads to play. More players means more courts, more fun, more funding and a brighter future for the sport. Doesn't your group, your event or your kids deserve a little recognition?

The Platform Tennis Promotion Committee has created a press kit to make the job easy. Included in this kit are sheets on the history of the game, the rules, the players, the businesses; even copy-right free photos for members of the media to use.

All YOU have to do is download a kit and send it to your favorite paper or television station along with a letter or a press release of local interest. Personalize the story, add photos of your group if possible, and back it up with the facts and figures on the sport included in the kit. Chances are the story will run.

Features are anticipated in the Chicago Tribune and the New York Times through current efforts of individuals. Add to that, articles in dozens of local papers throughout the country, and platform tennis will no longer be such a mystery sport.
