    Happens all the time. Companies are always trying to lure other players into their company. For example, my brother is with Babolat , but Head sent him a letter of interest to him this year.

    with the kirschbaum preferred player sponsorship, what do they expect of the player? to always use the strings, stencil their logo, etc... or do they not really care since there is no contract involved or is there?

    they dont really care in my opinion. they sent me a stencil for free, so i guess that means they want me to do it. i mean i have it and i use the stencil only cause i think it makes my racquet look cool :) , but i know with racquet preffered player some make you do it, like head.

    Why don't you give Yonex a call yourself and found out yourself.

    I just filled out an app for Vantage. You have to go to the new website.

    If you look closely in the small print at the bottom of the page, the site everyone linked says "Vantage Sports 2007".

    To go to the new site, just add ".uk" after the dot com. It'll say 2008 at the bottom and you can fill out the app there.

    Does anybody know if any of the companies do sponsorships in Ireland? lol.

    There's only like 62 players in the u18's though. I played one small tournament last year and got to the second round so I only have 8 points and am last. This is because I was plagued with injuries in January, February and March and then I missed all of the tournaments over the summer because I was in Spain! So, this year I'm planning on getting into the top 20. First tournaments in 2-3 weeks. Just wondering though, seen as there's only 62 players would you have to be Top 5? Maybe Top 3??

    Cheers.

    I forgot about them actually.

    What do these guys actually sponsor though? Do they give you a % off of items or give you clothes or racquets or what's the story? I play with a Wilson racquet though so if Babolat are the only ones sponsoring in Ireland then.....you know? Not saying I am capable of getting one but.....

    Dont know the requirements for Ireland. But here in the US Babolat has a competition team as they call it where they give u player package with 3 rackets, a bag, 2 shirts, and some other goodies for a highly discounted price. In the US you have to be like top 150 in the country or top 30 or so in your section depending on the section. I know Head offers the same package for top 200 or 30 also. Both also offer full sponsorships for very highly ranked players.
