Troll Tennis is your number one source for tennis news, humour, analysis and off the court gossip.
In June 2012, the burgeoning growth of social media combined with a lifelong passion for tennis culminated in the creation of the Facebook page Troll Tennis. Steady steps lead to big change, and in the three years since, Troll Tennis has doubled, tripled and quadrupled its way to 168,000 page likes on Facebook. What begin as an outlet for passion had grown to numbers far beyond our imagination. The natural step forward was expansion, and in order to set up a uniform presence across the web, we created Troll Tennis profiles on Twitter, Instagram, and even Reddit. These profiles do feature content from our central hub, the Facebook page, but focus on breaking news and event coverage.
Our first steps into the tennis world were as entertainers, as a humour-based page dedicated primarily to making light of the sport, the easygoing yin to the intense yang. As we opened our borders and forayed into multiple platforms, our tastes grew more serious, with equal focus toward tournament coverage and news.
To make this trend a firm reality, we established a website that centralises its effort toward sports journalism. Come for the jokes, stay for the information!
We have a dedicated social media and content team to provide you with the latest happenings in tennis.
