Bentley was a trade mark established in Germany in 1967 by Kurt Klemmer.
He was Germany's Snauwaert distributer and they decided to sell Snauwaert made rackets under this brand name. Activities stopped in 1981.
A similar cooperation developed in the Netherlands where a large retailer named Temming en Zonen (Temming & Sons) joint Snauwaert and they marketed the brand name Temzo.
