If you go with Kirschbaum, be aware that their logo is a cherry.
I've got a preferred player sponsorship with Volkl. The rep was down at my club, and asked if I would be interested in signing a two year contract with them, for a 40% discount on all Volkl goods. He didn't ask for any evidence of results or ranking, which was a good thing, because I haven't played tournaments regularly for two years now, so my ranking is ****!
Good for you. Is your club really large? I'm sure that wouldn't happen to me. Our club is small and it only sells two brands (Head and Prince) anyway.
i think ur lucky, we used to have a rep from Dunlop but now we have................zip, i wish my club sold anything, i have to get anything tenis related online
I have a preferred player form, but does anybody know what kind of deals they give? Also, is it true that Volkl gives them to everybody?
It's not, i just got an email back from the volkl rep today asking pretty much the same question.
Here's the reply:
We fully sponsor juniors who are top 5 in their section and top 20 in
We offer reduced price product for top 20 in the section and top 50
in the nation
Please visit the following link to apply for sponsorship
We will then follow up with you to discuss sponsorship possibilities . ..
Thanks for your interest in Volkl Tennis!
They give out preffered pricing also to any high school tennis player look at this web page http://www.volkl.com/tennis/us_team_volkl/hs_page.html
I am just curious do you have to get a specific to get the 40% off or do you just get 40% off everything
be good? haha
no seriously, be good =b
There isn't much to do. Usually they contact you. I am sponsored by Prince, but unfortunately I am trying out the Babolat Pure Control. I get string, shoes, and rackets but not very often. They used to do it monthly but now its just randomly or when I ask. I have about 16 diablos but I am about to sell all of them because I LOVE this pure control! But honestly I don't think I will be sponsored by Babolat because my ranking is not high enough. You can always get preferred...
I want to get a preferred player contract with babolat...what are the requirements and contract details...anyone who knows information would be greatly appreciated! thanks
top 200 in the nation or top 5 in state for preffered player for babolat
do you know what's included in the package. and pricing and stuff?
For babolat.. it all depends on your rep.. a local shop owner's wife got sponsored with 4 free racquets, bag, dozen strings and 6 packs of overgrips because our rep is awesome
um i was responding to thebosher 's post...all preferred players packages are the same...and they are all directly through the company as i have known.
thats the standard package from babolat for "influencers" according to their words.. i saw the contract today.. you get either one of two packages:
4 racquets, bag, dozen strings and 6 packs of grips or 3 racquets, two shoes, bag, dozen strings and 6 packs of grips..
is there anyway you can find me an application...since i qualify i am having trouble e mailing babolat and what are the prices
try calling them up they respond faster that way their number is 1-877-316-9435
Those were the packages that they give you for free for meeting certain "qualifications".
I don't know exact details about the "preferred pricing" programs
also, there is no application. you can send them an email or whatnot telling about your ranking etc but i don't believe there is a formal application
I think you do have to be of a certain standard or ranking to get a preferred player status with Volkl. I can get 40% off everything I want, but only use it for rackets, grips and balls, as I prefer to wear adidas clothing and shoes.
Yeap it is the best solution
Could someone post the requirements for the preferred players package for Wilson, Head, Prince and Yonex please?
For Wilson, Head and Prince you have to be either top 200 in the nation or top 5 in your state, and as for Yonex call them up and speak to Derrick Applegate and he will tell you.
What is wrong with you people, why are people so lazy, read the damn thread.
Contact them with a quick easy email and they will give you all the forms and any information you want.
End of story
That is not for prefered player, that is for sponsorship
No that is for being a preffered player, you should call them it looks good if you think you are good enough
I´m being lazy for various reasons and thought that it would be less troublesome to just ask here instead of sending mails to the different companies.
I'm currently being sponsored by Barbolat. Roddick is the number 1. I got this opportunity by the Rod.
Read the post, they say other wise that would be max 250 people in our whole nation that have just a preffered player sponsorship which does not even give you anything for free.
And most of the people on this thread that got it were not top 200 or top 5 in state.
Now for a player sponsorship where they give you are stuff for free, you are correct on that
How you got this opportunity??
What about these small string brands that no one (except for the loyal tennis junkies on this board) have heard of? Wouldn't companies such as Leopard, BDE, Titan, Alpha, Signum Pro, Toalson, and Unique give away packages. I know this would help cut the cost of stringing for me greatly. Anybody know the requirments of these companies?
There isn't really that hard of requirments for those smaller stringing companies you should try and e-mail them or call them. Good luck.
Wouldn't Nadal be the number 1
Unique and Alpha don't sponsor people
unless you are a tour pro
By "not hard requirements" for string companies what do you mean? I just e-mailed a bunch of them, simply asking for forms. Is anyone here sponsored by a string company?
Kirschbaum advisory staff
What does "advisory staff" mean? I know a pro at our club that I've taken lessons from before had a shirt on once that said Head "advisory staff."
I know a guy who's sponsored by Lacoste...he got 3 different outfits and 10 000$.
I'm sponsored my Yonex
one of the reps saw meplaying at a tournament
we started talking and he just offered it to meon the spot
Really, what level are you, and what titles do you hold?
Sorry, but the same response seems to apply for everytime the idea that asking is going to get something for free- " If you have to ask how, it's not going to be happening- those that are sponsored or going to be sponsored, are "
Someone said that in tecnifibre website there's a modul for be sponsorize, can someone post the link?
Well i didn't realise this, but i'm pretty sure you'd have to be able to construct sentences and spell MODEL correctly.
But someone spoke about it can I have tihs link?
Just do a search for Tecnifibre.
are you joking or serious about your friend, cuz id like to have a sponsorship with lacoste
I proved, they gived to me a modul.You've to answer to some questions and after send it back to France with normal mail.
Check out this offer!
This is the best package offer I have seen. Campers at the Old Dominion University (Norfolk, Virginia) were offered this package when they signed up for a week of camp. The PTR and USPTA offers Head preferred packages to their members, and Fischer used to be a part of the PTR program. Certified professionals are free agents because many of them prefer to make their own deals with companies of their choice rather than staying with the company who has the contract with their organization.
Those Tecnifibre packages are the same that they offer at the University of Louisville Tennis Camp. Pretty good deal if you ask me
The problem is that I live in Europe---:|
