What we delivered

  • SMS campaign with code word: TENNIS
  • A platform to receive inbound messages and collate them into a ‘community’

The LTA enlisted Henman Communications to market and build British Tennis membership during the above three tournaments. To do this, an SMS competition was set up to acquire mobile numbers for future marketing. The initiative’s incentive for entrants was the chance to win tickets Barclays ATP Masters Finals 2010 at the O2 Arena. This competition not only marketed tennis memberships but also generated brand exposure for lead partner AEGON.
