How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?
Ansley's Tennis team implemented a tradition 10 years ago to engage the membership in important tennis events - The Champions Club. Members receive points based on the type of event they are volunteering for. From Friday Night Mixers to our annual Pro-Am Charity Tournament, there are all different kinds of ways to earn points. Members who volunteer are put into the running to join The Champions Club. This is a coveted, invite only group of 10 men and 10 women who have the most points from participation in Ansley Tennis Events.
How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?
Benefits of joining The Champions Club include a beautifully executed dinner party, discounts in the Tennis Pro Shop (equipment and apparel), and a Champions Club minted sweatshirt to represent their dedication to the organization. During its existence, volunteer participation has gone up 10-15% to 320 people in 2021.
