Tennis Alberta is pleased to renew its partnership with Penn, making the Pro Penn Marathon ball the official and exclusive ball for Tennis Alberta and the Alberta Open.

“Our continued partnership with Penn offers Tennis Alberta the opportunity to provide a consistent and quality ball at all sanctioned tournaments, while simultaneously providing a financial reinvestment that supports the development of tennis programming across Alberta,” says Alan Mackin, Executive Director. “We are thrilled to carry on our collaboration with Penn Canada.”  

Tennis Alberta member clubs will receive an exclusive discount on Penn balls. Penn continues its commitment is to provide Tennis Alberta’s clubs, its members, and players of all levels the same level of service and quality product that consumers across Canada have come to expect from Penn products.

“Supporting the game of tennis at all levels is important to our company” says Rob Morash, General Manager Head Canada (owner of the Penn ball brand). “We have seen the growth of the game in Alberta these last few years and we’re pleased to continue to build the sport through Tennis Alberta initiatives.”

Tennis Alberta started its partnership with Penn on January 1, 2019. Support from Penn has contributed to Try Tennis Events for youth and adults, and community visits across Alberta.

The Pro Penn Marathon ball is Penn’s #1 selling premium tennis ball in North America. It features; High Tenacity Longplay felt for increased durability; Encore™ technology, which allows the rubber core to stay firmer over a longer period of time, resulting in the ball holding its pressure longer; Smart Optic felt for increased visibility. The Pro Penn Marathon ball is produced in Penn’s own factory which results in a high quality control standard which provides consistency with each ball. The Pro Penn Marathon is available in Extra-Duty Felt (for hard courts) and Regular-Duty Felt (for soft courts).
