Machholz named Promotions Manager for US

June 2, 2014

*Solana Beach, CA — * Volkl Tennis announced today that Gary Machholz will be taking on an expanded role within the company. Machholz, who joined the company in May of 2013 as a Territory Manager for the Rocky Mountain Region and VIP ambassador will now manage a growing list of sponsored and VIP players.

According to Sean Frost, Managing Director of Volkl Tennis “Gary has the industry contacts and experience as a USPTA, PTR and USRSA member along with his years of service on the supply side to help us drive the Volkl brand. The past couple of years Volkl has grown and we want to hit the groups that drive brands – teaching professionals, junior players and key influencers across the country.”

“I am excited to work with Sean in growing Volkl and driving sales to the player market. Since my background is on-court I feel very strongly that juniors, teaching pros, college players and tour players help drive brands. The Volkl line is known for performance with comfort and in today’s game that is more important than ever. Just look at the list of injury retirements and surgeries on the ATP and WTA tours. Our German engineering really does make a difference.”

This announcement comes on the heels of the VolklOrganix V-1 Pro being named the Best All-Around Performer in the Tennis Magazine Racquet Guide 2014. “We have known our racquets were in the top tier, but to have an award like that is icing on the cake,” said Frost. “Our V-1 line has long been known as one of the top racquets for players looking for performance with comfort and the new V-1 Pro takes that comfort and performance to the group of young players looking for a thinner beam and smaller head. Along with our entire line of new Super G frames we have racquets that fit every player.” Machholz added, “Anyone who is on the court a lot of hours knows they have to protect their bodies and our racquets, strings and accessories can help those people.”
