I know there are loads of desperate tennis players out there, looking for sponsors just as I am. So I guess I'm supposed to stand out in some way that will make the sponsor choose me over all of the rest. When I play, I keep all comments to myself (unless it is a doubles match and I need to communicate with my partner). And I've always been told that I have a lot of patients during game play. But I am losing patients on this! lol. Not really.
I just wanted to see if someone could give me some pointers, or help me know where to go from here. I have been playing for a few years, and am playing at a 4.5 intermediate level. I am going to enter some USTA tournaments in a few months.
Everyone tells me sponsors are hard to get, and I can believe it! But I know that they aren't going to fall into my lap and give me all the things I need without expecting something in return.
Could someone help me out?
