Viking Ad

[Bordentown, NJ ] –Viking, the platform tennis leader, is proud to officially announce the arrival of its 2009-2010 paddle line.  Eight paddles will comprise the offering, with each Viking paddle continuing to be manufactured with the precision and handcrafted care the most discerning paddle players have come to expect from the brand.  With the new line, Viking is also offering newly crafted upgraded versions of the legendary Oz, Ignite and Zone paddles.   The Wizard, Re-Ignite and O-Zone have been re-engineered to deliver enhanced performance benefits, while retaining similar qualities that made them legendary.

“The 2010 paddle line is going to ‘wow’ a lot of players due to the breadth of the offering, the meticulous attention to performance and detail and the smart, strategic upgrade features we made to three classic paddles,” said Viking Founder David Kjeldsen.  “Players can expect enhanced performance and unparalleled quality control for more exact specs from paddle to paddle.  The early feedback from players and dealers has been extraordinary and we are proud to finally, officially announce the line.”
 
With the Wizard, Viking has captured all the technology that made the OZ the sport's all time #1 selling paddle, but taken it to another level with a new, improved handle shape and additional grip sizes.  Also, the Wizard features a dual sided, cosmetic, mid+ density core and even balance to provide the perfect combination of power and control.

The Re-Ignite, an enhanced version of the Ignite, is set to light up the competition with its oversized, super-wide hitting surface, which produces an extra large sweetspot for ultimate control.  The paddle also has the softest feel in the line for added vibration dampening. 

The New O-Zone paddle is designed with an extra-length handle that allows for two-handed shots, while slightly head-heavy balance provides extra snap on serves and overheads.

Also the popular Synergy, the lightest weight paddle in the line. has a new look for the 2009-2010 season.  The new navy and gold cosmetic ties into the traditional Viking color scheme and is certain to be a big hit with both male and female players.

The 2009-2010 Viking paddle line is currently in stock and available for purchase
