Slinger Bag Continues Middle East Expansion with Israel Distribution Agreement
Slinger Bag partners with Pure Tennis to sell game changing tennis tech to Israeli market
Baltimore, Maryland--(Newsfile Corp. - February 11, 2021) - Slinger Bag Inc. (OTCQB: SLBG), a sports brand focused on innovating game improvement equipment for all ball sports with an initial focus on the global tennis market, has today announced its launch into the Israeli market via a distribution partnership with Pure Tennis (www.puretennis.co.il), one of Israel's top tennis e-tail and retail outlets with extensive experience of tennis brand management.
Interest in tennis in Israel is growing, buoyed by the international successes of the likes of Shahar Pe'er, as well as the doubles team of Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich. Since 2008, both men's and the women's teams have qualified for the top groups in the world - the men are in the Davis Cup world group, and the women are in the Fed Cup world group I. In Israel there are currently about 100,000 active players in more than 500 clubs.
The new announcement follows a number of recent strategic Slinger Bag distribution agreements throughout all the world in other key global tennis markets including Australia, France, Germany, Spain, India, Japan, UK & Ireland, Switzerland, Russia and all four Scandinavian markets.
Slinger Bag has taken the international tennis industry by storm since launching in Spring 2020, receiving widespread critical acclaim in the process. Slinger Bag enables tennis enthusiasts to get out on court to play at any time without the need to find a playing partner - whether that be at their club, local park, on their driveways or in any other available open space. Slinger is designed to be lightweight, wheeled like a trolley bag and easily transported in the trunk of the smallest saloon or sedan car.
This patented, proprietary design empowers players to set up and start launching balls within minutes, to control both the launch speed and the frequency of the balls using two customizable dials and vary the angle of elevation to suit groundstrokes, lobs or even, in the Ball Boy mode, to practice serves. Slinger Bag is lightweight at 15kg/33 lbs. and multi-functional, holding racquets and other gear, 72 tennis balls, and has pockets for storing wallets, keys, towel and a water bottle and is impressively affordable.
"The team at Pure Tennis believe in the potential of the innovative Slinger Bag product to increase play frequency across the Israeli market as well as honing the skills and fitness of tennis players of all ages and abilities," said Pure Tennis Head of Marketing and Sales, Eran Shine. "We have considerable experience in managing international brands and wide knowledge of the Israeli tennis world, and are excited to be a part of the Slinger Bag success story, helping improve the game with a revolutionary product."
Of the new arrangement, Mike Ballardie, CEO of Slinger Bag says, "This is another important milestone for us and we are delighted to now be on sale in the Israeli market, the place where the vision for Slinger started. The team at Pure Tennis are ingrained in the Israeli tennis establishment and we are sure that with their expertise and enthusiasm behind the brand, Slinger Bag will make significant waves in tennis in Israel."
