4.1 Market Segmentation

  1. Weekend Warriors: an important market segment for The Supreme Courts will be the weekend warriors. These people don’t like to be locked into long-term commitments but like the freedom to come and go when the opportunity presents itself. These people will be a target market for special promotions and periodic activities.
  2. Hardcore Fitness Buffs: another market segment for our facility will be those who view themselves as dedicated fitness gurus. These people are very particular about the type of workout equipment they use, and usually enjoy the opportunity to be “looked at” by other users of the facility. As long as the right equipment is available, these people are willing to lock into long-term commitments with a facility.
  3. Gym Rats: a third market segment for The Supreme Courts will be those people who love to be in a gym. Usually associated with basketball, gym rats seek to find places to play, practice, or just hang out, usually at a very reasonable price. The better the atmosphere, and the more people to watch them, the more gym rats are attracted to a facility. This is a very large market for The Supreme Courts.
  4. Families: this is a smaller, but important market segment for our facility. We have “something for everyone” and that will attract families that want to become members of the facility as well as families who simply want a few hours of fun every now and again. These people will also be the main target for summer camps and activities that allow for fun and education for the children while the parents enjoy some relatively cheap babysitting.
  5. Senior Citizens: this market segment will be our fastest growing market as more senior citizens are retiring to Henderson than any other group. When provided with health promoting programs, senior citizens are willing to participate due to the new focus on physical activity and the constant encouragement from family and physicians. In fact, this group was the fastest growing club membership segment over the last 10 years according to **. It grew up to four times faster than other segments.
  6. Business Travelers: another small market segment, travelers to the City of Henderson will be attracted to use this facility for various purposes without the pressure or hassle of a required membership. The simple daily walk-in fee will make The Supreme Courts a very attractive place to workout for these people.
  7. Tourists: another small market segment for The Supreme Courts will be the tourists who are attracted to the facility because of its size and appearance. Fabric structures often become tourist attractions because of their different and interesting appearance.

4.2 Target Market Segment Strategy

Due to the size and convenient location of our facility, many people will be attracted to The Supreme Courts to see what we have to offer. However, we will not be content to just wait for customers to come to us. Instead, we will focus our marketing strategies on those market segments who match our offerings. The great thing about marketing The Supreme Courts, is that each market segment relates, in certain ways, to all the others.

Our main objective with our early marketing strategy will be to get people into our facility. Once people see what we have to offer, and feel the atmosphere that will be created, they will want to return and participate in the many activities and programs that will be available to them.

Some of the ways The Supreme Courts will get people into the facility include:

  1. Offering tours to junior and senior high schools during the building and early completion stages of the facility.
  2. Having a large promotional event to open the facility that will be free to everyone.
  3. Hosting and/or supporting various community events that will bring in many people who otherwise would not come.
  4. Mailing out free day passes to all of the surrounding area.

Following the opening of The Supreme Courts, print and radio media will be used to promote both the facility and the programs that are being offered to attract new people from all over the Las Vegas Valley.

As a ** member, many resources are also available for marketing and promotional ideas that have been effective for other facilities.
