USPTA Extends Agreement with 10-S Tennis Supply and Aer-Flo to 2018
10-S Tennis Supply to remain the official court equipment of the USPTA
HOUSTON – The United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) extended its partnership with 10-S Tennis Supply through June 2018 for the company to continue being the official tennis court equipment supplier of the USPTA, as announced on Tuesday. The original agreement began in 2012
As part of the partnership agreement, 10-S Tennis Supply’s Six Star II tennis net will remain the official tennis net of the USPTA. The Six Star II® net features a tapered, extra-duty, braided polyethylene net body with UV stitching, double mesh on the top six rows, a double vinyl headband, six rows of stitching on the headband and a five-year warranty. The Aer-Flo Tuffy® Windscreen will also remain the official windscreen of the USPTA.
“We are excited to continue as the Official Tennis Court Equipment Supplier of the USPTA, and make an even deeper commitment to the association and its members through the Retirement Gold+ Program,” 10-S Tennis Supply President Stephen C. Dettor said. “We are delighted that USPTA Professionals now have the opportunity to purchase high quality, endorsed products like the Six Star II® Tennis Net and Tuffy® Windscreens while also receiving retirement contributions for those purchases.”
10-S Tennis Supply will contribute 4 percent of sales to the individual accounts of USPTA-certified Professionals who participate in the USPTA Retirement Gold+ program. The company becomes the eighth contributor to the USPTA retirement program since its inception in January 2014. 10-S Tennis Supply joins leading tennis and wellness companies Prince Global Sports, Fromuth, NetKnacks, Hop-a-Razzi, Power Plate, 2XU and Connor Sport Court International in contributing directly to USPTA-certified Professionals’ retirement accounts.
“The growth of the USPTA Retirement Gold+ program continues to show the influence of USPTA Professionals in the marketplace,” USPTA CEO John Embree said. “With the addition of longtime supporter 10-S Tennis Supply, our association is able to provide this valuable member benefit and reward those members who support 10-S.”
Additionally, 10-S Tennis Supply will make an annual $2,500 contribution to the USPTA Foundation, the 501 (c) (3) organization devoted to programs that help economically disadvantaged people learn tennis.
