A Better Way of Monitoring Player Development with Furqan Iqbal

For years I have been asking junior coaches to do a better job of communicating with families. Everything from which tournaments to play to whether the child is progressing to how a child compares to his/her peers are questions most Tennis Parents have.
Furqan Iqbal, the CEO of Tennis Locker, is a Tennis Parent himself who had similar questions for his son’s coach. That coupled with his software development background led Furqan to create an app that would allow coaches to plan for and monitor player development while giving them a simple means of communicating with players and parents.
I had the chance to meet Furqan and hear his presentation at the recent WTCA Conference in New York. Once seeing how the app actually works and how simple it is for everyone to use, I wanted to share it with the ParentingAces audience.
I love that Tennis Locker solves the problem of coach to parent communication. I love that it includes a variety of pricing options to suit a variety of coaching situations. And I love that it can be used by all three facets of the Junior Tennis Triangle: player, parent, and coach.
