THE 4-QUESTION SURVEY
Yes, there are more questions we could have asked but we wanted to make it really simple. Just a few easy to understand questions. We wanted you to quickly see where you are salary-wise as Director of Tennis.
So, let's dig right in, followed by a few remarks our data guru Gary Horvath helped me with.
94% of respondents were Tennis Directors.
54% of respondents had 1-5 pros reporting to them.
14% of respondents earned less than $50,000 annually.
41% of respondents earned between $50,000 and $99,000 total annual compensation.
31% of respondents earned between $100,000 and $150,000 total annual compensation.
14% of respondents earned more than $150,000 total annual compensation.
50% of respondents say they are fairly compensated.
GARY HORVATH'S QUICK ANALYSIS
We are measuring multiple sources of income for Directors of tennis.
Slightly more than half had smaller staffs, slightly more than one-fourth had mid-sized staffs, and slightly more than one-fifth had larger staffs. This infers they had to have management skills which would justify higher wages.
The estimated mean income is $97,900.
70% are happy with their situation and only 7% are really unhappy.

Wages are about twice what the average wage earner makes.
