19/08/09- Winchester, VA – Own the Zone Sporting Goods, LLC today announced that Active Outdoor Sales will represent and sell OTZ band dampeners for tennis racquets in the Southeast.

“Sales of OTZ band dampeners are going quite well in our region which includes Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, and Eastern Tennessee,” said Patrick O’ Steen, President of Active Outdoor Sales. “We know the market, the players and the people behind the counters and there is starting to be a buzz about OTZ. Several top young players in these states have started playing with OTZ bands, and people going to these tournaments notice these bright color bands on their racquets. When people hear that popular tennis stars Andy Roddick and Maria Sharapova also use bands on their racquets then the buzz grows even more…. We’re excited to be appointed as the company’s manufacturer’s representative in this region.”
