I don't know what amount of marketing dollars you may have, but advertising
in USPTA Divisional Newsletters, USTA Sectional Newsletters, and possibly
some national periodicals that target tennis players such as Tennis Week and
You may also try and contact Joe Dinoffer (joe_at_oncourtoffcourt.com) with
Oncourt Offcourt and Don Clarke (doncla_at_swbell.net) with Clarke
Distributors to inquire if they would handle your product. These two do
exhibit at various USPTA Trade Shows hosted by the USPTA Divisions and also
send out catalogs.
It is tough getting a new product exposed to the market place, especially
with tennis as you have a limited number of ways to promote compared to
other sports and activities, but if you have a good product and persevere,
you can make sales.
Good luck with your new product.
