Slinger Bag, the world's most portable tennis ball launcher, is now widely recognised as the 'hot' new Tennis product. Since its launching in Spring 2020, the product has received continuous critical acclaim and surpassed all sales and growth targets wherever it is sold around the world.
Slinger Bag enables tennis players 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 Bag is lightweight, wheeled like a trolley bag, and easily transported in the trunk of the smallest saloon or sedan car. It offers players the versatility to store all of their tennis gear including racquets, shoes, towels and accessories. At the average price of two to three performance tennis racquets, it is highly affordable when compared to comparable performing traditional ball machines.
"We're really excited by this association. Peter Burwash International is a highly regarded global tennis organization, working at the premium end of the global tennis market and this is the perfect environment for our brand. PBI customers around the globe are our core target market and this partnership represents an incredible opportunity to demonstrate the versatility and transportability of Slinger Bag directly to this key audience of players. As I experienced myself, there is no better sales pitch than getting on court with Slinger Bag to appreciate its ease of use and exceptional practice benefits," says Mike Ballardie, CEO of Slinger Bag. "Slinger Bag is truly honored to have the endorsement of such a prestigious and established tennis organisation as Peter Burwash International."
