USPTA Texas Division Southwest Tennis Buying Show to be held in Dallas/Fort Worth area

February 3, 2009

The Texas Division of the United States Professional Tennis Association will host one of the most popular tennis buying shows when its Southwest Tennis Buying Show opens Feb. 13 and 14 in the Dallas/Fort Worth area at the Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center in Grapevine, Texas. More than 125 buyers and 200 tennis-teaching professionals are expected to attend the buying show, which is in its 25th year.

The buying show, which is held in conjunction with Texas’ annual conference, is free for buyers and those who attend the USPTA Texas annual meeting and for all shops with tennis accounts or those wanting to establish new ones.

“The USPTA Texas Southwest Tennis Buying Show was created to service the tennis industry in the Southwest region of our nation,” Joe Snailum, USPTA Texas president, said. “One can see the latest and greatest in fashion and equipment under one roof and make intelligent buying decisions versus the old-fashioned way of doing business by waiting for your sales rep to come to you.”

Major vendors in the past have included HEAD/Penn Racquet Sports, Pro Penn tennis balls, Bolle´, Wilson Sporting Goods, Fromuth/Nike, Babolat, Sergio Tacchini, Reebok, Tennis Industry Association, USTA Texas Section, Prince, TennisLife Magazine, Fila, Lily’s, Tail, OnCourt-OffCourt, Playmate Ball Machines, Dobbs Tennis Courts, Clarke Distributing, Alpha Sports, Yonex, Dunlop, Adidas, Ralph Lauren Polo and many more.
