Just a few years ago, Kent Johnson saw an opportunity to open a tennis store in the Pittsburgh area. Since then, he and the Pittsburgh tennis community are both reaping the benefits.
Today, Tennis Town is booming as a tennis retailer in Pittsburgh, with sales growing each year since its opening. Recently, Tennis Town was named Racquet Sport Industry’s Pro/Specialty Retailer of the Year.
“It was an honor, we were surprised and excited about it,” Johnson said. “We’re trying to grow tennis in Pittsburgh, and it really is growing here.”
A partner of USTA Middle States, Tennis Town carries all major brands of racquets, shoes and clothing. The store offers stringing and a highly-popular demo program.
