    Can anyone provide some ball park numbers on what full time Tennis Directors and Pros and making annually? We are looking at compensation for our pros and could use some additional data.

    Please list Geography, Role, annual salary and any notes that are pertinent.

    I think that depends on area of the country or world as well as other things.

    Oil ghetto just north of Houston.....one local club with 10 courts (owned by the corp Lifetime Fitness) 3 pros and has about 175 to 200 members pays the tennis director about $90k salary - whatever he can generate from lessons/camps...etc is his......so on a good year he should be able to make $25 - $35k in addition. 7

    Large local country club with 27 courts and 5 pros pays the tennis director base of $120k again any extra from lessons and his cut from camps...etc. Club is part of club corp and has jeez - thousands of members - 90+ holes of golf, full fitness Ctr...etc. Just brought on board the coach from William and Mary who relocated back to Texas this summer - base for the pros starts at $25k plus cut of lessons.....

    But those numbers reflect a base that's at least 35 to 50% lower.......the money from lessons and camps and daily academies are where the main revenue comes from. It's not uncommon that the pros have almost no base but due to large client list or huge summer camp program make good money.

    It really depends, like in any job. Factors that contribute to salary are, experience, their level of play, students they've coached (ranking/skills, etc), and your location.

    Please provide some more information if you want to go into more depth.

    Thanks to those who could provide data

    The question is ball park and I noted that it depends on geography and one could add notes if they like. I appreciate those who were able to do that. I helps to make sure our pros are well compensated.

    I'd recommend checking out career guidance websites like salary, indeed, glassdoor for that kind of information. Another comparison you can use is the salaries of coaches at state universities because often those numbers are published. In my area of the mid-west, the numbers are far below what some have mentioned; some club GM's don't even make that kind of money. Those might be the top guys in the region who have a high rate and/or who can book 50 hours of privates a week and may not be a good example of what's average. I live in a metropolitan area and the clubs here just don't have the kind of business to support that kind of compensation.
