    Hi, I was wondering what it would take to get a Head sponsorship. I would also like to know what you get with it. I am ranked 37 in my section as of the lastest rankings, but I have never played a national. Thanks

    ok great. I still have 8 months before I leave my age group. But if I can get it down to 25, how do I apply?

    I got my head at ranked at i think 8. I think if you get 30 they will let you in. I went to www.head.com and found contact us. Then i called the nearest head dealer by me and bought the package! I got 3 racquets a bag a shirt a hat and a stencil oh and 36 head extreme soft overgrips :) good luck!

    Yeah I was looking on the Head website and saw a link for Team Elite. Is that preferred player package that I'm looking for?

    You can do what you want, but with the economy going the way it is and the fact that you are 37(Close to 40) I don't think they will give it to you maybe if you were top 30.

    No I understand I probably won't get it. I really mean to ask if I apply say right now and get denied, when my ranking goes up and I apply again will I have like a worse chance of being accepted or something?

    You probably wont have a worse chance no. I would actually be surprised if you did have a worse chance anyways.

    So many people apply for things like this there's no way they would ever remember you.

    You have a section rank, and then you have a National ranking. I don't know where to find it, but if i would have to guess probably on the ranking home page of the USTA website.
