I am a tennis instructor from Omaha, NE and I am thinking of relocating my family to Charleston or Corpus Christi. I'm looking to find somewhere to teach year-round. I run a very successful small business as an instructor and pro shop owner, however success is directly related to the weather. Charleston and Corpus weather looks great, and its tennis popularity is through the roof! Google Trends. Unfortunately, its a stalemate between these two cities. Corpus has better interest than Omaha (but less than Charleston) and not a ton of tennis facilities (private or public). It seems there is a need for instructors there. However, the problem is that the disposable income seems much lower in Corpus. Charleston seems to have plenty of disposable income. And things like this are promising: groupon. However, Charleston seems to have TONS of facilities and options for lessons. I didn't find much competition for private instructors like myself (looked for ads on craigslist, tennislessons.com, and google searches). I'm worried that private instructors simply can't develop a client base due to so many facilities to compete with. Or possibly so many experienced players that lessons are simply not sought after. I'm curious if there is a need for instructors in Charleston or not. When I did a search of other "tennis towns" it was very obvious. Atlanta, Phoenix, Tampa, Richmond, etc...all yielded insane results. Were talking about 200-400 instructors! Not to mention lots of tennis centers and private clubs. I'm thinking those towns are pretty saturated at this point. Unless I'm mistaken neither Corpus nor Charleston seemed to have those numbers. Both seemed somewhat comparable to where I am now except being much warmer and interested in tennis. Perhaps there are other factors then just tennis I should consider..... Things such as crime, climate, and schools only seemed slightly different. Any one have any advice? Thanks!
