Skins signed on to become the Official Compression Garment of the ATP World Tour. Under the agreement, the sports compression wear leader will supply its products to players at ATP World Tour events through 2019.
The partnership stemmed from a desire from ATP physiotherapists and doctors to have compression wear available to aid recovery for players who are continually training, playing and traveling throughout the season.
Todd Ellenbecker, vice president of ATP Medical Services says, “we are very excited to be able to recommend Skins compression garments to our players on the ATP World Tour.  Given the recent research supporting the use of compression garments on recovery after high level human performance, this will be a valuable addition to the medical services we provide for optimal performance and injury prevention.”
Skins pioneering garments apply compression to specific body parts in a balanced and accurate way to accelerate blood flow to deliver more oxygen to working muscles. The better blood flow also helps remove lactic acid and other metabolic wastes. Playing a big part in recovery, the improved oxygenation reduces the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness and accelerates muscle repair.
“This partnership is a highly significant moment for Skins because it endorses everything we, as a company, stand for. Our history of developing and re-developing compression wear to maintain the highest possible standards of sports science, means we’re able to provide the ATP with garments which specifically meet the requirements of the world’s best men’s players, day-in, day-out,” says Skins Chief Marketing Officer, Christian Gut.“The benefits of compression wear is clearly appreciated by those at the very top level who understand the rehabilitative process. The fact the ATP’s physiotherapists and doctors have chosen Skins as their exclusive supplier for compression garments, is testimony to our ever-continuing program to deliver the best possible benefits of compression wear to athletes at every level of sport.”
