Along with the exclusive game ball sponsorship, the deal gives the Wilson brand and its products a significant on-site presence throughout the next five seasons of the AVP Crocs Tour, including a display booth, outer and inner court signage, marketing support, branding and onsite sponsorship activation.

Highlights of the deal include:
