BALTIMORE, June 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Slinger Bag (OTCQB: SLBG), a sports brand launched in 2020 and focused on innovating game improvement equipment for all ball sports with an initial focus on the global tennis market, will be featured on the “National Report” show on Newsmax-TV, hosted by Emmy award-winning Emma Rechenberg and Emmy-nominated Shaun Kraisman. Slinger Bag’s CEO Mike Ballardie will join Serena Williams’ coach and Slinger Bag Ambassador Patrick Mouratoglou live on the show, scheduled for Thursday 3rd June (11:50am EST), to talk about how new tennis technology is shaking up the game of tennis globally. The interview can be viewed on satellite and cable, on the Newsmax App, online streaming service, or at newsmaxtv.com.
The Slinger Bag, the world’s most portable tennis ball launcher, launched in 2020 has quickly become the hottest new product in tennis, generating high profile media coverage in authoritative titles such as Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and The Financial Times. Slinger Bag is now sold in 45+ countries on five continents and has achieved distribution deals worth over $200M over the next five years.
The advent of the 2021 summer tennis event schedule, and in particular the French Open, means tennis is now very much in the spotlight, and the show will be discussing how new tennis technology, such as the game-changing Slinger Bag, is disrupting the game of tennis. It will explore how this new tech has facilitated access to tennis during the pandemic, and how it is increasing post-pandemic participation.
According to Slinger Bag’s CEO, Mike Ballardie, “It’s an honor to have been invited onto the show and especially to be sharing a stage with Patrick, one of the world’s foremost tennis coaches. Our success to date has been a hot topic in the sports media for quite a while and we’re delighted by all the brand buzz we’re receiving. We’re at the forefront of a surge in global tennis participation, with four million more people playing the game in 2020 than 2019, and our product is recognized as a great facilitator as it negates the need for both playing partners and courts.”
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 also provides 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, Slinger Bag is highly affordable when compared to traditional ball machines with similar performance. The Company is now developing launchers for other ball sports as well as a disruptive artificial intelligence application to help players optimize their game.
