all i had to do was send adidas a nice email. go to adiplayer.com for contact information. and then you should get a rep and they are based out of colorado and they can get me discounts on everything but rackets

Hmm.. That's pretty cool. But I just bought Barricade IV's this morning.

So is your junior ranking top 100 nationals, or your adult ranking top 5 singles?

I know mines not!

That's awesome guys, keep it up! I used to be sponsored by adidas before switching to reebok-- theyre incredibly nice, and I would reccomend it to anyone with potential looking for a first softgood sponsor.
Currently, I am on with babolat and reebok-- I am a top 10 mens open and a top 1-3 18s player on the tour here in Canada.

Nike does have a package like this, but you cannot go asking for it; they hold camps, tournaments, etc all over North America to scout their talent, and are incredibly competitive. Many players I play with get their nike deals through coaches or national programs getting in contact and making a deal with nike. That being said, they are very generous to their players.

Both, really-- they sponsor a lot of tournaments ( look for nike windscreens everywhere), but they also host some, too.

oh ok thanks, i know adidas and many more sponsors are at the Kalamazoo but i don't think Nike is one of them.

it takes a bit from Vantage.... I spoke with Paul on friday... and he is flying into the U.S this weekend. and he hopes to send out most of the team vantage e-mails from his destination.

Personally... I think that Pro Supex looks really really sketchy!
