Tom Halls from British Tennis has two goals, getting people to play tennis and getting fans to attend events like Davis Cup.  Sean Callanan chats with Tom the head of digital for Lawn Tennis Association on how digital can deliver both objectives.

On this Sports Geek Podcast you will learn about:

  • How Tom worked with big sports brands and then sports
  • What does the Lawn Tennis Association do?
  • How website design relates to tennis participation
  • Why participation drives different metrics than regular sports fans
  • Looking at how British Tennis engages around Davis Cup
  • Some of Tom's key takeaways from SEAT 2015
