wilson kicks off nationwide ‘spin effect tour’ to demo steam racquets



Wilson Racquet Sports today announced its nationwide “Spin Effect Tour” that will visit retailers and consumers in more than 200 venues, showcasing the brand’s game changing, Spin Effect Technology. Taking place from February through June, the Spin Effect Tour targets avid tennis players at tennis facilities across the country and will also be featured at some of the country’s leading junior developmental programs: Brookhaven Tennis Club in Dallas, Westheimer Tennis Club in Houston, Sanlando Park Tennis Center in Orlando, and the Evert Tennis Academy in Boca Raton.

Wilson’s proprietary Spin Effect Technology racquets, the Steam 99S and Steam 105S, became available to consumers in January. Both racqyets dramatically increase spin for consumers of all levels, enabling players to add more than 200 RPMs on their shots without needing to change their swing.
