USPTA Announces Multiyear Agreement with Hop-a-Razzi

Hop-a-Razzi is now the official tennis ball basket supplier of the USPTA

HOUSTON – The United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) announced today a multiyear partnership with Hop-a-Razzi that names the manufacturer the official ball retrieval basket of the association.

Hop-a-Razzi products will be featured on court at USPTA national training workshops and conferences, and on the instructional show “On Court with USPTA,” which airs on the Tennis Channel.

USPTA members not only qualify for special rates on Hop-a-Razzi products, but USPTA-certified members can earn contributions to their retirement accounts with purchases of Hop-a-Razzi baskets.

“It is imperative for our association to align itself with leaders in the tennis industry, especially companies that recognize the influence USPTA Professionals have to create demand in the marketplace,” said USPTA CEO John Embree. “Hop-a-Razzi is showing its support of the tennis industry by supporting the USPTA’s new Retirement Gold+ Plan through their willingness to invest in the tennis-teaching professional by contributing 5 percent of total sales to members’ retirement plans.”

Hop-a-Razzi joins Prince Global Sports as a USPTA-endorsed company to contribute to the association’s newly launched Retirement Gold+ Plan.

“Tennis players deserve to have an excellent experience on the court,” said Hop-a-Razzi president Christi Turdo, who is a club owner and a longtime teaching professional certified by the USPTA. “That means providing the highest level of professionalism by offering top instruction and quality equipment, and the USPTA and Hop-a-Razzi share that mission.”

Hop-a-Razzi's innovative tennis ball baskets feature built-in wheels, adjustable-height handles, superior quality, and 12 vibrant colors, among other elements. New in 2014 is an expanded line to support the 10 and Under initiative. Hop-a-Razzi products are available at Hoparazzi.com.
