KRC Welocmes New Sponsor - Oliver Racquets
We are proud to introduce our new sponsors Leon and Debra from Oliver Sport NZ.
The Oliver Racket Company was founded in the year 1938 by Jack Oliver in Adelaide/Australia and was until the end of the 70s one of the most significant tennis and squash racket producers in Australia, New Zealand and US.
The revolutionary product development was especially favoured by young competitive athletes. In 1952, the Australian Tennis professional Frank Sedgmann won in one season “Wimbledon” and the US-Open with the legendary “BLUEBIRD” tennis racket. In the end of the 70s when the squash boom started , Juergen Bundschuh saw the possibility to establish this extraordinary brand in Europe. In the last 30 years, OLIVER managed to establish itself worldwide as one of the top brands for Squash and Badminton rackets and supplies.
The guiding principles of the OLIVER company philosophy were defined in Barcelona in 1982. In coproduction with the former world number 3, Stuart Davenport from New Zealand , the OLIVER "manual" was created. Until today we follow these guidelines:
There will be 12 different styles and types of racquets at the club to demo and all purchases of racquets, clothing and footwear can be directed to Leon and Debra personally or via their website WWW.oliversport.co.nz.
