USPTA Strikes Expanded Partnership with Tennis Warehouse to Include Equipment 

LAKE NONA, FL, February 21, 2023
 — The United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), Inc. is pleased to announce an expanded multi-year endorsement with Tennis Warehouse as the new Official Equipment Supplier of the USPTA.

The USPTA and Tennis Warehouse originally joined forces in December 2021 with TW debuting as the Official Footwear and Apparel Supplier of the USPTA. After building a strong foundation with USPTA professionals through those offerings, the world’s leading online tennis retailer proposed a similar formula in tennis racquets, equipment and pickleball. This new equipment piece will be in addition to the already established footwear and apparel partnership.

Owned and operated by players, Tennis Warehouse has been helping people all over the world, including USPTA professionals, to find the right racquet for over 25 years. Tennis Warehouse playtests their products to provide honest and knowledgeable feedback so that customers can shop with confidence. With this new expansion set in stone, all USPTA members will be given the option to select from three different racquet companies: Babolat, Prince, and Tecnifibre. This includes all string, bags, 10 & Under racquets, pickleball paddles, and other accessories.

“Having worked with Tennis Warehouse and their team over this past year, they have exceeded our expectations from a customer service standpoint,” said John Embree, USPTA CEO. “So, why not give our members a choice of racquets rather than being exclusive to one company? I truly appreciate Tennis Warehouse’s willingness to go above and beyond for the USPTA.”

We’re excited to be joining forces with Babolat, Tecnifibre and Prince to enhance this endorsement by providing a variety of quality equipment to the USPTA members,” said Rick Kerpsack, Tennis Warehouse President.
