    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/ if you go to the bottom of the front page it shows "other sites" (skate warehouse is there).

    Yes. Skate Warehouse, along with Running Warehouse, Tackle Warehouse, Racquetball Warehouse, Inline Warehouse, and Art's Cyclery are all sister companies under the Sports Warehouse umbrella.

    Oh yea? But skateboarders have their boards to put their stickers on, where do tennis players stick their TW stickers?

    We'd love feedback! What other TW branded stuff would you want to see? We have so far:
    - water bottles
    - hats
    - shirts
    - sweatshirts
    - dampeners
    - bags
    - socks

    Give us your thoughts!

    Jason, TW

    You should add some good quality polyester shirts, and for the tw logo, just put "tw" I think putting the whole phrase is a bit of a turnoff for some people.

    or if you need the whole name put it on the back and "tw" on the front.Stickers can go on bags.

    I agree with this sentiment. The TW logo is pretty cool; "Tennis Warehouse.com" looks a little cheap, such as you might associate with a freebie.

    The obvious gap in your lineup is wristbands.

    I don't remember seeing any of your play testers wearing your stuff either. It should be mandatory for Chris to appear in a TW-branded pirate style bandana for at least one shot in every video, and wrap up with 'Arrr me hearties, that be the review'.

    I'd like a better water bottle, perhaps something Nalgene-like. The current iteration of TW water bottle is a second rate product - the paint flakes off with little effort, and the cap is all but impossible to remove when your hands are moist (perspiration, condensation).

    TEMPORARY TATTOOS, for those occasions where you are feeling extra decorative! (this is just a joke).

    Some iron on patches would work better for cloth materials like bags that we want to "brand," though. Stickers are a good idea, though, IMHO.

    Get nalgene labware if you get nalgene, the soft ones :) (HDPE)

    Tennis balls...if you can private label them cheaper! Imagine your branded tennis balls scattered across the courts of the globe...from clubs, to public parks, to parking lots to dog parks. :)

    I read over all the ideas. This idea is the best I've heard. If I found a ball on the court marked TW or TennisWarehouse, next place I would go would be online to see reviews and how much of a savings there is! Seems like it would be a great advertisement. The rate we go through, and lose balls, it would definitely get the name out.

    I was wondering if you had stickers as well.

    Put em on your car, duh! :p

    I'd love to be rocking a TW Bumper Sticker on my car.

    You could also make like Bag Tags/ Pins to affix to your tennis bag.

    Here are my suggestions: Key chains, flashlights, little mini-fans, pens/pencils.

    Re: bumper stickers, how about:
    "If it weren't for Tennis Warehouse, I'd be driving a <insert luxury car brand here>"
    "Follow me to Tennis Warehouse" etc
