The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), the governing body for tennis in the U.K., has reached a three-year deal with Framework Sports & Marketing, the exclusive distributor in the country of Slinger Bag. Framework will be supplying the LTA with 20 of Slinger Bags’ combination trolley bag and ball launchers every year. It will also grant discounts for LTA members and provide an affiliate scheme for coaches. The deal builds on Slinger Bag’s sponsorship in June 2020 of the Schroders Battle of the Brits tournament at the LTA’s National Tennis Centre. Framework is run by Jon Ballardie, a brother of Mike Ballardie, the former top executive of Wilson and Prince who runs Slinger Bag.
