Love your Logo

By Darlene Jefferson, Director of NetKnacks

Here at NetKnacks, we have focused    on providing tennis awards, apparel, and promotional items to the tennis industry since 1990. Like you, we are tennis players, tennis fans and supporters of the mission to grow the sport. Quite simply, we love tennis. Our mission is to help our customers find the right tennis award, apparel or promotional item to promote their events and programs so that they, too, can spread the love of tennis.

Will matching jackets with your team’s logo help you win more points?
Probably not.

Will club logo engraved stainless steel tumblers help your team get to the Sectional Championships?
Not so sure.

Will beautifully embroidered gear bags give your team the push they need to FINALLY win a Line 4 match?

But, will having coordinated hats, pullovers, water bottles, bag tags, duffles, and even koozies with your club’s logo instill a sense of pride in your team? Absolutely. Will that confidence spill over onto the court?

No matter how serious your team, whether you have a “just to get some fresh air” group of 2.5s or a trophy collecting championship dynasty, having a cohesive look is always a smart idea. You’ll come to the court with a little more swagger and feel more “official.”

Let’s begin with apparel. Show your pride by having your club logo added to any number of wearable items. Whether your logo is embroidered or screen printed on your athletic shirts, pullovers, tanks, dresses, T-shirts, etc., we guarantee you’ll love the way you look!

Now, let’s think about club gear. This takes us beyond shirts and jackets. Why not give your team branded drawstring bags to hold all those random wristbands, dampeners and wine corks you keep with you? They have the best imprint areas for you to show off your team logo, and are generally great value items. Custom vibration dampeners die cut to your club’s logo definitely have that “ooh, that’s cool” effect. And, any list of logoed items wouldn’t be complete without water bottles and tumblers. From budget-friendly plastic bottles to double wall insulated stainless steel tumblers (for your “special” beverages) to a super awesome water bottle with an integrated Bluetooth speaker, branded drinkware pieces are fantastic team gifts.

Speaking of team gifts, branded merchandise can also be used as rewards.

Here are some great ideas:
  • Give away custom bag tags at the end of each year.
  • Special towels or lapel pins for the captains.
  • Premium apparel pieces, customized team branded jackets and for end-of-year awards: most improved player, best overall player, best McEnroe tirade, etc.
We are just scratching the surface here with ideas. In fact, we are full of ideas and want to share them with you! Go ahead and reach out to us and together we will figure out the best way to coordinate and reward your club players with branded merchandise.

NetKnacks has been serving up custom branded tennis products and awards since 1990, so rest assured, we’ve seen it all (yes, even the water bottle bluetooth speaker).

Our team of promotional product experts is waiting to help your team look its best on and off the court. We love tennis. It’s all we do! Visit us at
