    Hey guys,

    I sent in an application for sponsorship on the ADNA website about 3 weeks ago. I have not gotten an email back from them. Does this mean they rejected me, or turn around time is just really slow? I don't know if I should send the application again?

    Thanks in advance,
    PhotoBlue

    What's your rank? They aren't just handing out "sponsorships" like before, now they're actually a pretty well known company in the tennis world. I know I got a reply within 2 weeks after sending my app in just for sh!ts and giggles.

    Don't mean to hijack thread, but how do those sponsorships work? Only for good/ranked players? Only for juniors?

    They give you a discount (bigger or smaller depending on rank). Now it's harder from what I heard, before I saw guys in weaker states that were around top 40 section DECKED out in ADNA. I was top 20 in Cali when I sent in and got one of the bigger packs offered to me.

    Can't say for sure... If your in a powerhouse section that may be enough to get an OK deal but you'll most likely get one of the small discounts through buying packages.

    IMO the shirts fit baggier than Nike but the Tees are same.

    Has anyone here signed up for Athletic DNA's Born For This contest? (www.bornforthiscontest.com)? I'm dying to see some of the other videos.

    Nice stuff my son has a deal with them and gets tons of stuff.....i was given a few shirts and found them a tad small - shorts are just opposite HUGE - love em though. The XL shirts fit more like a L just like KSwiss.

    Ok so I got my deal which is 30% off so $57 a month. I am just going to buy starter pack because $57 is just too much to pay a month. Once I get my ranking and TRN up I might see if I can get more discount and then might do it.

    It took several weeks before we heard back and got offered a tier program. My son was top 20 in his section.

    Took 2 to 3 weeks for me. I got the Level 2 or whatever it is- $49 a month. Not thrilled by the starter pack as 6 of the 17 items are crew socks which I don't wear. Still, a good deal I guess. They approved me as a teaching pro vs. player ranking, etc.

    Now they are offering me 40% so I think $49 a month. Still not worth monthly so I will just get starter. The thing is, two different people emailed me I sent in app more than once. 2 different street addresses. I just do cheaper one
