If you didn't know already, there is a new tennis brand on the scene, one that is likely to have the bigger tennis ball manufacturers looking over their shoulder. Mantis was only started in 2009 by Martin Aldridge but, already he has pulled off a major coup. This year, the Mantis tennis ball will be used at the Aegon Masters Tennis Tournament. In a multi-year deal, the season's finale will see some of the tennis greats, serving with a Mantis tennis ball. Aldridge is obviously very pleased with this development and must surely be eyeing up deals, to get his tennis ball into the major tournaments around the world. Mantis will supply the balls for the next few years and will be able to develop their brand far quicker. The 2011 Aegon Masters Tennis tournament takes place at The Royal Albert Hall, from 30th November to 4th December. If you would like to try the new ball now, you are able to purchase Mantis tennis balls, from Sports Ball Shop now.
