Sad sad sad.
Consumers drive the Market. I had a casual conversation with a MFG Rep from one of the BIG Companies They are concerned about the Junior System ($$$$). Less kids in big events, less kids buying 12 Racket Bags, 10+ Raquets etc..
Asked would MFG Companies Sponsor events, his answer is several are considering it given the lack of Uniformity Thru the US and lack of consensous in the USTA about what to do.
