RMSBoulder.com Now Offering Online Sales

Louisville, CO - January 4, 2011 — Rocky Mountain Sports of Boulder, Inc. (RMS) announced today that their new webstore, www.RMSBoulder.com is now open for business. The website offers easy 24/7 access for both retail customers as well as established RMS customers who may request a wholesale login.

According to CD Bodam, who started RMS in 1971 to market a towel grip that was in vogue at the time, the website is designed to offer customers the convenience of ordering when it is convenient for them. “Over the years our main source of orders has been through one of our phone sales reps. We still foresee that being our base, but as times change we want to offer the customer what they need to make shopping simple and convenient.”

Products available on the site include nearly everything necessary to keep a racquet sports facility stocked for retail sales, plus a full line of court equipment and court maintenance items. Brands include all the top lines in racquet sports, plus RMS is the exclusive US distributor for Tretorn tennis balls and the official wholesale accessories distributor for Babolat in the US. RMS is also home to the highly successful adidas adiPlayer Preferred Player Tennis Program - www.ShopadiPlayer.com.

RMS began business in 1971 in Boulder and moved to Louisville in August of 2000. The company was started by two young tennis players, CD Bodam, who still owns the company, and Mike Sprengelmeyer. Their first product was a terry cloth towel grip. It was the first on the market and the only other option to fight perspiration at the time was a gauze grip. It became one of the most popular grips with tennis accounts throughout the United States.

As time went on the company grew and expanded its selection of products. RMS also developed an out-bound telemarketing sales concept that is still the basis for the wholesale business. Bodam played both basketball and tennis at the University of Colorado, Boulder. After graduation, he then coached the CU men’s tennis team from 1975 to 1980, and when the program was discontinued in 2006, he ranked as the winningest coach in the program’s long history.
