    You can switch at any time because your actually paying it's not like there giving you free stuff. Once you buy the stuff it's yous.

    Nike simply doesn't sponsor anybody. Adidas is top 25 in your section. Would Fila give me the deal if i told them i made JTT sectionals? Seeing i don't have a ranking.

    No, probably not. Company's just don't give out their products cheap for fun. You need to prove to them tha you're legit.


    That's not for you, but for everyone.

    Yeah I got it. 2 racket package is 299, 3 racket package is 399. Includes the racket, choice of string (reel or 2-6 sets depending on the string), bag, 2 shirts, hat, pack of overgrips, and stencil ink. You're eligible for shoe discounts and other clothing/accessories too.

    They have tiered sponsorship levels. So it varies depending on your ranking.

    As long as you're committed to the school and you are playing varsity you're eligible. Doesn't matter what div you play.

    Not much unfortunately. But you can try solinco they are picky but as a new company you might get lucky.

    Also I heard donnaypro's email thing is valid from my friends (they get stuff for cheap) so you can try that

    tennis companies usually base their sponsorship selection off of usta or tennis recruiting rankings... it is easier for them to look you up rather than trusting you on your view of how good your are.

    playing tournaments and raising your ranking is the best way to get a sponsorship or a discount

    but im sure that there are several companies that give you discounts as long as you play competitively

    Hey guys,
    I'm not a highly ranked player. However, I have received several sponsorship offers. Currently I have a half-sponsorship with Solinco. I have been given offers from United Sports and Vantage.

    I was wondering if I can get an email address to contact a rep for Head, Wilson, or Athletic DNA. I'm very interested in those three companies at the moment and would love if I can talk to them to hopefully get some discounts.

    Thank you

    Genesis is top 5 in your section or top 50 in the nation for full. Gamma is full if you are top 10 in your section or top 50 in the nation.

    If you are searching for some racquet/string company to sponsor you, it probably means that you should stop searching for some tennis company to sponsor you and you should start searching for answers to your problems on the court. Then sponsors will come looking for you.

    Not necessarily. Some people out here need discounts or any way to save money. And there are several places where you can get deals and discounts without being a great player.

    If you have to ask about Head, you don't qualify.

    Head is strict if you email them 99.99% you dont qualify if you qualify do they already know your name. If your asking a question about sponsorships just email mantis. I though this thread was going to die.

    Everyone can get Mantis and Dunlop. But if you are 22 in your section you should have no problems with any company.

    I have went from 10.2 to 8.2 with one more win till 8.1 in the space of 5 months and got from 108 to 22 in the rankings, I just started tennis 5 months ago so I think im going the right direction :) there is only four sections in Scotland and the one I am in is the hardest one.
