Viking Named Official Equipment, Footwear and Apparel Sponsor of the Professional Platform Tennis Association

Bordentown, NJ – November 16, 2009

Viking is proud to announce that it has been named the new, official partner of the Professional Platform Tennis Association (PPTA). Through the new one year deal, the equipment leader will be the exclusive provider of paddles, accessories, footwear and apparel at all PPTA events in 2010.

“To have Viking step up and offer support to the PPTA and its members in this fashion further solidifies why they are considered the industry leader,” said Nate Parsons, President of the PPTA. “Our organization which is comprised of approximately 200 teaching pro members - the men and women on the front lines of our sport – is extremely impressed with Viking’s commitment of support which already far exceeds anything we have received in the past. What really makes sense about this partnership, is that Viking provides the best line-up of paddles, balls and accessories in the game. This makes it incredibly easy for our pros to make the right recommendations to their students every time.”

Through the new partnership program all PPTA members will receive a new Viking fleece jacket and substantial discounts off the purchase of the popular Prince T-8 line of shoes. The T-8 is ideal for platform tennis play and available in styles for men, women and juniors.

“Viking has always been a supporter of the PPTA. We realized it was not only important to continue our support, but jumped at the opportunity to become the exclusive, official equipment partner to the organization,” said David Kjeldsen, Founder of Viking Athletics. “The PPTA and its members are paramount in growing our sport and we are proud to align ourselves with industry leader.”

The new 2009-2010 Viking product line is currently available in stores nationwide and features eight paddles 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 offering newly designed versions of the legendary Oz, Ignite and Zone paddles. The Wizard, Re-Ignite and O-Zone have been reengineered to deliver enhanced performance benefits, while retaining similar qualities that made them legendary.
