a local radio station contacted me to do an interview for tomorrow. what do you think are some important #'s or topics i should mention?
15% annual growth over 20 years versus 5% drop off per year recently in ball golf.
Estimates by retailer indicate almost 1 million play at least several times each year.
3-4 times faster to play 18
More exercise per minute
Lower cost for rounds and equipment
You can play by yourself
More variety in usable terrain and shot types than golf
Easier access to competition whether leagues or events
One of few activities that has been shown to get non-athletes out to exercise
One of few outdoor activities other than walking which uses park facilities 365 days plus evenings for glow leagues and events, even in northern climates
Global course and player rating system found in few other sports (unless you count chess as a sport)
All sanctioned events on single global calendar where results and stats can be seen online by everyone
On balance, more environmentally friendly (maybe want to skip this one unless you really know the stuff)
