    Say you are on a tennis team in college, could you get the whole team sponsored as a whole? Or are the sponsorships strictly per person.

    Our sponsorship levels are based on year end National and Sectional rankings. To qualify for the lowest discounted price we look for a top 500 national ranking or a top 40 sectional ranking. The next level is top 200 nationally or top 20 sectionally. I encourage everyone to register on our website under the junior section http://athleticdna.com/Juniors.aspx?showcaseid=100

    What is the discount for top 200 nationally? Also, alot of my friends got stuff in the mail including a sample shirt. I am ranked higher then all of them and was wondering why I wouldn't have recieved something?

    All the athletes who applied and were accepted for sponsorship received a sample shirt as well as their sponsorship forms.

    If you just applied we will be in touch with you shortly and give you complete details on discount levels.

    Think about it this way: most pros don't even get sponsored by Luxilon. They might get a pro price (slight discount), but nobody is sponsored. Just like Babolat, a ton of players use VS Gut but only a few players (Sampras is the only one I know off the top of my head) get free gut. Everyone else just pays a somewhat cheaper price.
