does it include any shoes? or only tennis rackets? thanks, Nina
Shoes and rackets..,,,,
my coach is sponsered and also got a bag and some string
if its anything like babolat and prince you get like 12 rackets per year, unlimited string, dampeners, and of course a bag. The shoes and clothes might be separate though. you should email them and ask...i doubt anyone on here is fully sponsored by a racquet company.
My Daughter is fully sponsored by Wilson. You can get just anything the others offer; rackets,shoes,clothes, and of course string(with a choice of Luxilon and Wilson string).
is there any limit, say how many racket? how many shoes? they told me they will put me on list at the begining of next year.
how high do you have to be ranked to get a sponsorship?
top 20 in the nation for wilson....i think
Racquets- depends on age. You get more racquets if you are older. The minimum on the contract is 4 racquets for the younger kids.
String- allowance also age dependent (more string for the older kids). It is an allowance...so if you use cheaper string...you will get more string.
ETC...(dampeners, stencil/ink, hats, wristbands, etc...)
I'm not sure if Wilson has hired a new junior manager. The former manager left to coach college team. Anyone know if they hired into this position???
your situation may be different from mine, your son or Daughter may be top ten in the counrty as well as accomplished ITF players. That may qualify them for an apparell contract(1,2,or 3yr) as well. But generally tennis1970 is correct.
