Ashaway Extends String and Shoe Sponsorship Deal with Jack Huczek

December 3, 2008

Ashaway, RI — Officials at Ashaway Racket Strings announced today that the company has signed a new two-year sponsorship agreement with well-known Racquetball Pro, Jack Huczek. Under the terms of the agreement—specifics of which were not disclosed—Huczek will continue to support his favored Ashaway Superkill® II string as well as his signature Jack Huczek/AMPS 311M racquetball shoes. In addition, under the new agreement, Huczek will become more involved with Ashaway product development and marketing efforts.

“As a longstanding member of the Ashaway sponsorship team, Jack has already made a number of contributions to our products,” said Ashaway Vice President, Steve Crandall. “He was a very hands-on member of our AMPS shoe technology development team and is already working with us on developing a new string. We look forward to expanding his role.”

Having just finished his MBA with a focus in marketing and entrepreneurship at Oakland University in his hometown of Rochester, MI, Jack is also ready for new challenges. “One of the things I have been looking forward to, once my schooling was done, is to develop my skills on the business side of the sport, and one of the best ways I can do that is to work more closely with my sponsors. Ashaway has been very supportive of my goals, and I’m looking forward to getting even more involved.”
