HEAD Penn Racquet Sports to Continue as Official Sponsor of Beach Tennis USA
PHOENIX – March 5, 2008 –- HEAD Penn Racquet Sports and Beach Tennis USA have renewed their partnership for another year. HEAD will serve as the official racquet and Penn will be the official ball for all the events, comprising BTUSA’s 2008 National Tour including the season-ending national championship in Long Beach, NY. HEAD Penn equipment will be used exclusively in all matches and at all events.
Beach tennis is played on a 30’X60’ beach volleyball court using HEAD racquets and Pro Penn T.I.P. 2 low-compression tennis balls. Both recreational and competitive, beach tennis is fun for players of all ages.
“HEAD Penn is proud to continue as the official sponsor of Beach Tennis USA – bringing tennis to a new audience in a unique and fun way. We think beach tennis is a great way to expand tennis into a new avenue and appreciate the efforts of Beach Tennis USA to grow the game and appeal to different player types,” said Amy Wishingrad, National Promotions Manager.
“Beach Tennis USA looks forward to another year of partnership with HEAD Penn. HEAD racquets and Pro Penn T.I.P. 2 balls fit perfectly with the beach tennis format and we appreciate their support as our tour begins its fourth year,” said Alex Querna, Executive Director and television play-by-play host for Beach Tennis USA.
This year’s BTUSA National Tour begins with a week-long tournament/showcase at the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, FL (March 26 – April 6). In addition, BTUSA events will be televised to over 40 million homes on Tennis Channel, Comcast SportsNet and SportsNet New York (SNY).
