"Sponsorship"...... Opinions are needed
 
I started tiny men's tennis apparel company (more like a small store).
I did not consider any sponsorship for my company but I already got several sponsorship requests (I think I might reconsider it at this point).
I don't have a problem with helping young players but
I always consider "Sponsorship" as Full sponsorship but I searched here and found there are many companies offer "partial sponsorship".
I don't know those companies use the word "Sponsorship" as a marketing strategy or there is no perfect term for "Partial sponsorship".

Well, in my little experience, most partial sponsorships give discounts on their stuff. And please consider doing this because I'd like to get a pair of those shorts on the website.

It's a great way to get your company name out. If you can deal with it financially, then go for it!

Larrysümmers 11-30-2011 02:11 PM

^ basically. here's what most companies do. they offer a package deal for X amount of money. From what ive seen, if you are top 25 er so in your section your stuff is free.
the main point of sponsorship is to promote your product, so you know if someone is in the top 25 they'll be playing a lot.

not sure where your store is, but i would start out local. maybe with the teaching pros or the local high school team, or some other people who play a lot of tournaments.

good luck with the company, and if you need anyone to sponsor your company in northern illinois, Ill be your rep :D

OP, what is the website for your apparel company? I am interested in seeing what kind of stuff you have, I haven't seen any of it and would like to!

Well my coaches son has a full sponsorship from prince but he is in top 10 in texas and top 75 in US. A lot of the guys at my academy are highly ranked but there style of play is not as different as my coaches son so they have partial sponsorship. When sponsoring someone you should look at there potential and there style of play not just ranking.

I would give x amount of full sponsorships and then offer packages for anyone who is at a certain ranking... most companies will do top 40 in section for a package and top 20 or 15 in section for full. For itf and college pretty much if you play them and do fine or on a div 1 school you get full.

Who are the best request for a sponsor so far)

If you have a website for your company, state the rules for sponsorship on it.

For example, you could have a tab that says sponsorship.

There you would list national and sectional requirements for full versus partial sponsorship.

Whats the name of company? Not looking for sponsorship just want to see what the cloths look like.

He mentioned it already and I visited the site. I think he did not put the link because TW also sells this stuff.

BTW I got emails from people and have some issues with their emails.
Their Internet provider blocked my email and can't deliver my emails.
If you don't here from me, that's the reason.

scraps234 12-04-2011 11:01 AM

Ok thanks, how many people have tried to get a sponsorship and who are some of the best

FEDERERNADAL13 12-04-2011 11:11 AM

My daughter played a tournament and Babolat was one of the sponsors. He gave me contact info and sent papers for players package. Raquets, shoes ~50% discount. Shes Top 25 Florida. I talked to her coach who gets prince and head and asked are these deals good. Also asked our local shop and all told me any money saved on equip can help offset cost of lessons, travel etc.

It benefits apparel/equip mfg, when top kids are seen and others copy. So a healthy discount benefits all
