ok, first of all, how do you get sponsered? I know you have to be ranked whatever high, but how do you get the companies to actually sponsor you. Do you have to email them or whatever? And if they tell you they will sponsor you, then what do they give you. If its a clothing company do they give you all free clothes or just a discount. Same for racquet companies and string companies. Is it all free stuff or just discounted. And whats the difference between full sponsorship and partial? I once got a Head juniour package, which is when you have to be ranked in the top 25 in your section and they give you a bag, three racquets, tons of over grips, a shirt, hat, towel, and paint stencil kit for your racquet all for around $350. Does that count as a full sponsorship or a partial?

If you pay for it its a partial. A full is when they give you free stuff but those deals are only usually available to the top guys. In order to obtain any sort of deal you need to email the companies and tell them about yourself or fill in one of their forms. Hope this helps

Its different for each company. I hear Wilson is the hardest to get a Full Sponsorship with.

I know Head and Babolat are fairly easy to earn the partial sponsorship. As long as your either top 15 in your section or top 150 in the country. (I think)
