    How good are you? Usually the best way to go about this is going through teaching pros. Around my area, I see the most sponsorships from Athletic DNA. But that was when they were trying to start out. Now that they are established, I don't know if they sponsor as much.

    I have a friend that's sponsored by adidas, he basically gets free clothes and shoes every season. He's like top 5 in the pacific NW though, so you gotta be real good. I heard you can also be top 25 in section and get partial sponsorship from adidas.

    I am Babolat sponsored and get shoes, shirts, shorts, and hats.

    It took me over 2 years to get Babolat to sponsor me.

    Best ways to get sponsored:
    1. Be top ranked
    2. Work in a tennis shop or country club
    3. Teaching Pro with access to local sales reps.

    my kswiss app went through. You have to buy $250 worth of clothes and then you could buy individual items. It seems that some shirts don't come in all sizes i.e only small or L/XL

    What type of discount do they give you and how highly are you ranked?

    I've been seeing a lot of people wearing k-swiss these days. guess they're trying to make a push. i think some of their stuff looks pretty good

    ya mine just came through too, and yup, 250dollar for 4 crews, 2 shorts, track suit, 2pair sock, 2 hats, 2 pair wristbands, and 1 pair shoes. not the best deal. at least we get the whole store on discount. did you buy the package? i did the math and it sums up to $250+tax as opposed to about $408+tax. Requirements for kteam is top 25 in section and top i forget either 100 or 200 in nation

    I just got sponsored by FILA for 40% off all my purchases- have the Spring Collezione collection, as well as some Alfa IIs.

    Cheers,
