    Hi all! So I've been wondering how would I go about getting a sponsorship from Wilson, Babolat, Nike, or others. I have won my regional highschool tennis championship in singles 2 years running, and am an up and coming tennis player. I'm 15, and am almost unbeaten against any player of any age at my club. Who would sponsor me?? What would I get?? How would I go about getting a sponsorship??

    Thanks!

    are you ranked USTA, normally they look at USTA rankings so join some USTA tournys. All I know is that it is normally if you are ranked top 15 or higher in the nation or top 10 in the state. The numbers might be higher or lower, i havent checked recently but thats the way it is.

    based on your post.... i'd hate to say but you would be lucky to get a free wristband. Whats your ranking in your section?

    No one cares about high school for sponsorships.

    :)You have a tough crowd here on this forum. There are a few levels in tennis, unfortunatley you're not quite at that level needed for sponsorship.

    There is a significant difference between club and High Sschool tennis compared to being ranked in the top ten in the Nation (which is approx where you need to be) on the Junior tennis circuit.
