August 25, 2014

Pittsburgh, PA — GAMMA Sports (“GAMMA”) announced today their latest investment to connect with players at the grass roots level through Team GAMMA development. GAMMA has hired an experienced group of promotional scouts and recruiters headed up by tennis industry veteran and development expert, Ken Merritt. Merritt and his team will be responsible for building Team GAMMA, an elite group of tennis players, teaching pros, coaches and training centers.

“I am excited to start this new venture with GAMMA. After meeting the GAMMA team, I knew this was the perfect fit,” said Merritt.“ These guys are really committed to tennis. The knowledge and experience that sits in GAMMA Headquarters blew me away and then you match that with true “Pittsburgh steel mill” work ethic and family run business values – it’s a brand waiting to explode. My team and myself are ready to roll.”

“We are very excited to be shaping Team GAMMA with Ken, who recently built one of the most highly visible junior and academy programs in the tennis industry,” said Matt Ferrari, GAMMA President and CEO. “His team’s ability to create passion and a dedicated following for a brand coupled with our commitment to support players, teaching pros, coaches and academies are a natural fit. We’re looking forward to building Team GAMMA and having a lot of fun doing it.”

Ken and the Team GAMMA Player Development staff will be on-site during the U.S. Open meeting with players and coaches.
