USTA NorCal Current Member Questionnaire
For those who were not able to participate in focus groups with the researchers, we are providing this open-ended questionnaire with most of the questions from the focus group (minus one ice-breaker question).
We appreciate very much you taking a few minutes to give your perspective on the state of adult tennis and specifically on efforts being made by the USTA. We want to encourage you to be as candid as possible here. One, your confidentiality will be protected in the reporting of the data, with no statements being directly attributed to any one individual, and two, representatives of USTA NorCal sincerely want to address the declines in adult tennis participation and can only do so if they fully understand the issue/s at hand.
The informed consent information for taking part in this quick open-ended survey follows. After reading below, if you agree to participate, simply proceed to the next page.
