Anybody here have a string sponsorship as opposed to a racket sponsorship?
I think that you get a company sponsorship and then everything that company makes is sold to you at a discount. It is not individual items that you get sponsored for.
lux sponsors =)
Bow Brand sponsors players.
do lux and bow brand have specific ranking requirements like for rackets?
Hey guys just give them a phone call or an email, some times things are a lot easier than you would think, ask and find out what they can do for you or what you need to do.
It's easy and the people are really nice.
Thanks Jacksonvile, and yes I was referring to stand-alone string companies like BowBrand, BDE, Ashaway, Luxilon, and many others.
i think pacific sponsors too. check out garrison's site
Am I missing something...what's "garrison's site"?
Garrison Sports Group. They distribute Pacific gut here in the US.
For sponsorship, check this site:

Thanks, Court Jester.
Whoa! By "Top 400" do they mean in the nation? I would think so, because if it was section or even district, that would be like everybody.
of course all companies have requirements, i don't remember what they were, i haven't paid for string since i was 14
Who are you sponsored by?
was prince since i was 14 to 18 i played with prince syn gut orig., then when i went to rice i played with kirsch, now i have a private sponsor for string,so i have tons of lux and poly gut, but i'm switching from prince to babolat in the near future, so i'll probably change to ballistc and pro hurricane
no prob, if you need to try a few sets of string i'm sure i have enough to spare =)
I emailed Bow Brand about a year ago and the very nice lady said just to send in a resume, list of results and accomplishments. I specified USTA tournaments, not pro, and she said that was fine. Alas I didn't send it in and now I've switched to VS Team - nothing to do with Bow Brand's quality just easier and more accessible.
Does anyone know Klip's requirements?
You have to be top 5 in your country for a Luxilon sponsorship. Polystar and Signum Pro is looking to sponsor players in the USA. Just contact the US seller on their website tennis string man dot com and they may be able to hook you up. Babolat is easy to get a reduced pricing sponsorship. Most mfg's will give you reduced pricing if you are top 200 in the USA, and free if you are top 10.
Wow! I wish I had so much sting i could give it away!
For free? If you have any, do you think you can spare me a pack of alu power. I want to give it a try. Poly gut would be fine too.
so sydney, are you going to play satellites or just like the open adult usta?
i'm probably not playing any satellites, i'm probably traveling a bit to play some Futures overseas and playing the USTA Pro Circuit (Futures/Challengers) we'll see how everything goes =)
i don't play with ALU Pwr, I play with orig
alright. but i'll be pulling for you.
you and one of my friends Phil King who i went know from going to college with him
guy i know got contacted by babolat for sponsorship
sweet i appreciate it, i've met philip once, haven't seen him since kalamazoo in 99'
Sydney Jim, whats your name so we can follow your results in the future from http://stevegtennis.com ?
Sydney Jim is my name and Sydney is my first name
does anyone know the email address for the babolat player package
Go through your local Babolat dealer.
You can email them off their website. I am sponsored by PolyStar, great poly string.
do you have the website/email address for polystar? and how do their strings compare to well-known strings?
You forgot to mention that your father is the importer of the string. Not so hard to get a sponsorship when facing that situation.
You have to be ranked in the USTA top 100 and you have a shot. Google PolyStar.
What would you know, Stan, you probably never played with it.
Also Kirschbaum sponsorships I heard those are really good
You absolutely right Stan. Some parents sponsor they own kids. I mean it's understandable, but... Would you sponsor your own son or daughter?
Whatever... but I think Polystar are fine strings and I wish they would be have a better presentation in US than the current one. They even popular in Eastern Europe.
Im just trying to picture your wilson n pro with red strings. ... Quite cool actually!
