The company has generated significant high-profile media interest internationally in recent months as Fox Business joins a long line of illustrious media outlets that includes editorial coverage in renowned titles such as Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and The Financial Times.
The inclusive interview will cover the company’s new partnership with tennis legend Tommy Haas – the latest high-profile tennis star to join the rapidly growing Slinger Bag stable, that also includes doubles superstars the Bryan brothers and world-renowned tennis coach Nick Bollettieri. Haas reached a career-high singles ranking of world No. 2 and won 15 career titles in singles including the ATP Masters, and an Olympic silver medal. He joins Slinger Bag as Chief Ambassador to lead strategic direction in expanding the company’s existing ambassador program. In this new role, Haas will use his professional network to onboard additional high-level ambassadors to promote and drive sales for Slinger Bag’s portable tennis ball launcher.
The stellar global market growth of Slinger Bag, the world’s most portable tennis ball launcher, from its launch last year, has taken the tennis world by storm and Slinger Bag has quickly established itself as the hottest product in tennis. It is also positioned as being a potential game changer for participation in the game. To date, Slinger Bag has achieved distribution in 40+ territories across every continent, and secured deals worth over $200M over five years.
According to Slinger Bag’s CEO, Mike Ballardie, “We’re delighted by all the media attention Slinger Bag is receiving and the buzz around our brand in tennis markets around the world. What’s more, tennis is currently enjoying an exciting surge in interest. Participation has grown a massive 22% in one year, with four million more people playing tennis in 2020 than 2019 and most of these being new players. Slinger Bag, is a product at center stage of this growth in interest and participation, filling a gap in the market, which is why our sales have beaten all forecasts to date, despite the pandemic.”
Slinger Bag enables tennis players to get out on court to play at any time without the need to find a playing partner – whether that be at their club, local park, on their driveways or in any other available open space. Slinger Bag is lightweight, wheeled like a trolley bag, and easily transported in the trunk of the smallest saloon or sedan car. It also provides players the versatility to store all of their tennis gear including racquets, shoes, towels and accessories. At the average price of two to three performance tennis racquets, Slinger Bag is highly affordable when compared to traditional ball machines with similar performance. The Company is now developing launchers for other ball sports as well as a disruptive artificial intelligence application to help players optimize their game.
