    Once you break 25 e-mail adiplayer with your USTA number and all that jazz. For different companies it's well 'different' =]

    Best of luck to you.

    i wouldnt get all caught up in that crap, I first go the whole "preferred" crap (3 racquets, bag, some shirts, string) for like 300 bucks, then eventually got a full sponsorship...honestly, it doesnt matter and play with what you want to play with.

    Yea I have preferred packages with companies, becuase I was top 20 in the east in the boys 12 and under, and now I still have them even though Im not top 20 in the 14's. If you really want a sponsorship just apply on line and write emails to compaines. If you look in some previous threads there were kids that got sponsorships without even being ranked that high.

    I have a half sponsership with Babolat. Mostly everything for cheap, like the Cortex for $80.00.

    When I was in 12's I was on the "Prince Tennis Team," but when I quit tennis so did the sponsoring. In 16's when I was ranked 23 I was sponsored by a smaller company that made apparel, but they also helped with getting rackets and things. In 18's I have no sponsorships, I need a new pair of Barricades though so once I start playing 18 tournaments I'll apply for adiplayer.
