USPTA Buying Show to be at Saddlebrook

June 21, 2011

The United States Professional Tennis Association’s Tennis Buying Show will be held Sept. 22 at the Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel, Fla., during the World Conference on Tennis. Booth space is still available for the largest national tennis-only buying show.

The buying show is part of the larger World Conference, which begins Sept. 19. More than 1,500 tennis-teaching professionals, industry leaders and representatives, media and manufacturer representatives are expected to attend. Manufacturers are encouraged to submit booth registrations early to guarantee their space since the buying show sells out each year. To obtain booth reservation forms, visit and click on the buying show menu tab or call John Dettor at 713-978-7782 or e-mail him at [email protected].

Exhibitors include tennis equipment, apparel and footwear companies, marketers and wholesalers of hard and soft goods, video analysis, Web-based programs and software, teaching aids, court surfacing and lighting, awards, educational materials, nutrition bars and vitamins, and more.

In addition, the USPTA Silent Auction will be held during the buying show. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of exciting items. Past items have included video-analysis systems, autographed racquets by current and former ATP and WTA tour players, weekend getaways at spectacular resorts and much more. The auction benefits the USPTA foundation, and is a USPTA Lessons for Life™ event. Anyone interested in donating an item for the auction can visit and click on silent auction under the special events menu tab to obtain a donation form or call John Dettor at 713-978-7782. All donations are greatly appreciated.
