Slinger announced the latest distribution agreement with Framework Sports to bring its Slinger Bag into Poland.

Framework Sports has established a Polish subsidiary of its UK-based operations, led by Mark Jarvis, the chairman of the Polish subsidiary. Slinger said it continues to expand its international footprint with key distribution deals, and Framework Sports has been the exclusive UK distributor for the brand since May of 2020.

“We are thrilled to be expanding on our relationship with Slinger,” said Jarvis. “We have had great success with introducing the Slinger brand and Slinger Bag to the UK tennis market and look forward to applying our experiences to Poland and its growing tennis market. We are also thrilled to be working with Jarek Duda, an expert on all things tennis in Poland, including previous Davis Cup experience having worked with the Polish team.”

Slinger said that in 2019 the Polish Tennis Federation reported: “over 300,000 active tennis players in the country and that figure is on the rise.” Two Polish tennis players are helping draw interest in the sport: Iga Świątek, who won the French Open in 2020 and currently is ranked #9 on the WTA Tour and Hubert Hurkacz who has won three titles this year (Metz, ATP Masters 1000 Miami and Delray Beach) and reached the ATP Tour Finals in Turin. He is currently ranked #9 on the ATP Tour.

“We are proud to expand our relationship with Mark and the Framework Sports team. They have done an incredible job representing Slinger in the UK, and we are eager to see what we can do together in Poland,” said Mike Ballardie, CEO of Slinger.
