hahah dude that isnt AJ or Spizman. You know who i am right?
dude come one. Southwest is pretty bad. Top 25 for adidas sponsorship??? We have a couple good 12 year olds and a decent fourteens. Sixteens is pretty competetive but is somewhat of a joke nationally. Same with Eighteens except for a couple players
Let's not say "pretty bad". It's a matter of numbers. Those sections that have more depth are that way because they have more players. The southwest is one of the smaller sections. Fewer players = less depth. Fewer really good quality coaches, because they tend to be where the population is higher (notable exceptions, of course...I'm speaking generally).
We have some really good players. We have less players overall, so there's a lack of depth. SoCal probably has 10 times more players, thus they have somewhere around 10 times the depth.
exactly. Southern Section was so intense. They had about 150+ people per state and there were 9 states. Tennis is really big down there. It was hard just to get inside top 50 in the stae. There arent even state rankings here.
Its like that in California and Florida as well.. In the southern section, its just unbelievable how many kids there are though.
I Just got offered a deal with Prince....... might accept.
Whats the deal and what is you ranking /age group / country ?
i heard that if u accept the packages then they will give u a full faster then if u just start out with a full??...
It's 3 raquets, a bag, reel of Synthetic Gut, hat, and a couple t-shirts, wristbands and socks for $380.
I just turned 13 so my Florida sectional ranking is only like 95, but my sectional ranking in 12's was 50 and I was ranked in the 400's nationally.
Anyone know the deal with head.....the team elite thing?
I looked at the sign up thing but it says to post your nat. rankings from 2006......do they have another place to sign up....anyone partially sponsored by them?
you can just sign up there, for HEAD team elite, the form is old but they still accept them,, just put your current ranking, or simply wait for them to contact you and leave the ranking spot blank. I got a full but i waited to long so they switched me to a good partial
ok so im just gonna fill it out with my current rankings....what does current nat. section mean tho?
Can I please ask what your age , ranking , country was when they offered you full ?
I was about 13 turning 14, i was ranked some were between 15 and 5 in the Bahamas. I also got it because one of the reps saw me play/hit
was it a big tourny where he saw u hit? if so which one?
no it wasnt at a big tourney- i think it was because i was with Timothy Neilly(orange bowl winner vs. donald young) and i was checking out Tarik Benhabillis' academy.
oo it could have been an ITF training camp
im just wondering, if im ranked high enough on Long Island do you believe i could get any sponsor?
Whats your rank? And in what age division?
also whats your past rankings?what big tournaments have you played good in...
ok i was 12 on li last yar (my first year) shouldi wait another year to get my rankingup then ask. also i really didnt play in any huge tournys so that hurst. thanks for your help in advance
how long does it take for a company to e-mail back? i sent tecnifibre one on weds.
Tecnifibre got back to me in less than a week .
But this is Easter and thery may have holidays
cool, thanks. just making sure i sent it to the right e-mail
if u are going for a big company then yes try smaller ones right now and see if they offer....
i just got offered a deal from avery...
and 2 sets of string
should i take it?
Do you like their racquets?
whats avery's email?
i dont know but i think i decided against it... becuz i dont know about their rackets and its only 2 and not 3....:-?
firstname.lastname@example.org i think
im sorry if this has been asked but what is your rank scraps. also des volkl pokennex donnay gamma or kneissl provide sponsorships.if they do what do you have to be. lastly do technifibre and dunlop really take rankings seriously?
Why do you need a sponsor so badly? I know that you are a junior and you want to go pro, but your rankings aren't great right now, so why don't you improve them and have the sponsors asking you if you want them?
EDIT: I'm not trying to be mean!!!
i know your not trying to be mean but i dont want one now really im just seeing what i might be able to get if i keep playing well. also tennis is getting harder to afford so soe discounts are not that bad right?
sorry i forgot to answer ur question about my ranking... well it goes up and down alot...sectional maybe between 50-15 depending on how i do in big tournaments
anyone have anything about elleese?
nothing about ellesse but if i ask tecnifibre and say no now but later want the deal will they remember and be mad. also if anyone has any other racket companies emails it would be greatly appreciated
they might but u nvr know
Please, let mo know the site for the sponsorships from Babolat.
are these the right emails for tecnifbre? I used paul @ tecnifibreusa and i used the promotion one.
does anyone know about donnay, volkl o kneissl hve sponsorships? also if possible can people please give me email adresses to some clothing companies for decently ranked player?
Do you think Fila will accept me if I am around 145 in my section?
nope. top 50.
wut would long island be considered in terms of sectional or regional? also wut r the emails for techifibre and dunlop if anyone knows them?
it is easy to get dunlop for me but idk about tecnifibre... with dunlop, all you have to do is go to the opper bowl and they will offer u it... also so will new balance
i am also looking into donnay or kneissl...i tried volkl and i loved but my rep ran out and signed with head =( also t111 that is the right email i think
so which email for tecnifibre should i use i only used the promotion one also scraps i dont play any big tournmanets so dunlop cant really see me and also wut is the email for volkl or dunlop?
no email for either volkl or dunlop but if the sponsor a tournament talk to the rep there... and that tecnifibre email was correct i think
Is 200 in the nation for Prince a full sponsorship or a partial? What rank do you have to be to get a partial deal with Prince?
200 is partial im pretty sure...
