trying to get ahold of Wilson for college player package??
 
I tried to send an e-mail to the e-mail adress they have on their site under contacts but it keeps getting sent back to me saying delivery failure. Any idea of what the actual e-mail adress would be to get ahold of someone from wilson concerning college player packages??? Or any other way to get ahold of wilson concering college player packages??

Depends. Most companies will sponsor players or give them discounts if they're D-1. For D-II and D-III players, some companies will offer a "player's package" for a small discount. I know Babolat does it, and Dunlop as well. Not sure about anyone else. For the big guns like Wilson, I doubt it, unless you're top 5 or 10 in the nation for your division.

hmm i read a few threads on here cause I did a few searches and some people were saying that Wilson did give out player packages. I'm obviously not looking for a sponsership i play D III lol. But i know companies like babolat, head, dunlop, and tecnifibre do player packages and I thought i had read that Wilson does also. But I found a way to contact them just waiting on a reply should hear by tomorrow, will post again if they do give out player packages.

WRONG!!! All college player packages are the same...no matter the division...and that's with all the companies.

Coach Carter 03-08-2009 06:03 PM

like with all these companies...to get a "College/Preferred Player Package", your coach will have to do the calling and ordering. you can not call the company yourself. the only issue with the Wilson "plans" are that you must have a Wilson account prior to ordering a package...plus their package is smaller than the other companies.

now i know this is not true, cause the person that told me about these player packages contacted Babolat himself and got his stuff on his own. He played for the same school i play for now but has since graduated. This is the first year we have even had a true coach lol.

Your coach should have forms that you can fill out for a player's package...have you talked to him?

Have your coach call around to local clubs in your area, find out who is the local Wilson Dealer, that is who the package will ultimately go through.

so i finally was able to contact wilson via e-mail. they sent me a reply saying that they do have a collegiate program and gave me a phone number to call. I'm going to make a phone call and see what happens from there and ill let everyone know.

It's true, it doesn't matter what division you play, everyone gets the same discount. I play D2 and we got package offers from Head, Dunlop, Babolat and Wilson. I took the Wilson package for $379, I got 3 racquets, the Super Six K Tour bag, 12 sets of string, 12 packs of the white Wilson overgrip. Pretty good deal IMO since in my country one Wilson racquest is around $200-$250

Did you already call Wilson at the 800 number they have ? They know who you should contact. I believe they have a prompt for the preferred players.
