[tennisbiz] Re: Finding a sponsor
My experience in getting a sponsor has been one of asking. If you have
access to the Internet, or a tennis professional at a near-by tennis
club in Romania, then search for names and addresses of people in
tennis who could help you reach your goal, and begin to contact the
specific person who could help you. Many smaller companies may be
willing to step forward, if you show them intent and willingness. If
you have local support, let a probable sponsor know that, too, by
including those references.
Your goal is not impossible; however, many up-and-coming tennis players
want sponsors, too. I would work toward a shoe sponsor first, then
proceed from there.
I wish you the best of luck. Keep reaching, keep writing and asking for
help. Someone just might say "yes."
