August 25, 2021
BALTIMORE, Aug. 25, 2021 — Slinger Bag, a sports brand focused on innovating game improvement technology and equipment, with the vision to become a connected sports company, is announcing today that it has entered into a partnership with the Mouratoglou Academy, one of the most successful and recognizable brands in tennis. Its flagship academy situated in the French Riviera has 30 tennis courts, world-class training facilities and is regarded amongst the top tennis academies in the world. Recently, Mouratoglou has been expanding globally, opening tennis centers in Dubai at the world-famous Jumeirah chain and in Costa Navarino, Greece. Mouratoglou is also known as the training home to some of the biggest names in the sport, including Serena Williams, Coco Gauff and Stefanos Tsitsipas.
This new tennis partnership spans not only the academies themselves, but also Patrick’s disruptive tennis league UTS (Ultimate Tennis Showdown) (https://utslive.tv/). Patrick first joined Slinger as a Brand Ambassador in May of 2021, and today’s announcement signifies the next step in both his involvement with the company as well as Slinger’s footprint throughout the Mouratoglou ecosystem. Slinger will become an integral part of the coaching culture within the academy and has already been adopted by the coaches to support their training and programming.
“We are thrilled to further align ourselves with such a respected leader in the sport in Patrick, and now his academies and UTS, too,” said Mike Ballardie, CEO of Slinger. “The Slinger Bag was created to make tennis more accessible, convenient and fun, and it has also become a trusted coaching aid to the leading coaches in the sport, including Patrick and Darren Cahill. We have heard from them, and hundreds of coaches from across tennis, the benefits that the bag provides when they are on court with their players. From not needing to feed balls, to creating more specific drills, to working closer with their players for improved analysis, we believe that the Slinger Bag is going to be a must-have for every tennis coach in the world in short order.”
