Prince Debuts Limited-Edition Whiteout Racquet
Prince has launched a limited-edition Whiteout Collection, including an all-white racquet and coordinating

gets underway this summer.
For decades, Prince has provided top quality performance gear to tennis professionals worldwide. The White-
out racquet offers a sleek design for the brand’s most popular racquet, the TOUR 100P, which is a control-ori-
ented racquet reinforced by Textreme®, a unique material that provides a boost in flexibility and stability. With
an impressive level of performance, the exclusive Whiteout racquet features a white matte finish, a white grip
and contrasting black strings featuring the brand’s signature “P” logo.
“It’s been an exciting opportunity partnering with Prince in designing the Whiteout racquet, an update to the
Tour 100P, my most trusted on-court equipment,” said Lucas Pouille, Prince brand ambassador and top 20 ATP
Player. “I rely on Prince to provide top-quality racquets that give me the confidence I need to play at the high-
est level. I can’t wait for fans to experience the Whiteout racquet’s new sleek design.”
“Prince has always been a leader of design and innovation and we pride ourselves in being a pioneer in lead-
ing edge technology,” said Tyler Herring, Vice President of Prince, ABG. “The Whiteout design was inspired with
the tournament’s heritage in mind and the technology incorporated can enhance all levels of play.”

Tennis Europe has announced an extension of its partnership with the Mouratoglou Tennis
Academy, with the two organisations due to continue their close cooperation until the end of 2019.
The partnership, first announced in June 2016, has already been a great success. Now into their third year, the
‘Mouratoglou Cup’ 12 and 16 & Under tournaments have established themselves as firm favourites on the
Tennis Europe Junior Tour, while the Academy has also hosted the final rounds of the continental team
competition for 12 & Unders, the Tennis Europe Nations Challenge by HEAD. Earlier this week it was
announced that the Academy will host the 2018 Tennis Europe Coaches Conference in October, which is set to
be the biggest-ever edition of the event and will feature the Academy’s President and Founder Patrick
Mouratoglou (also coach to 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams) as keynote speaker.
The latest triumphs for the Academy came at Roland Garros, where its students claimed both junior titles.
Several of the Tennis Europe Junior Tour’s top players train at the Academy, alongside Junior Tour alumni such
as Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Stefanos Tsitsipas. Located near Nice on the French Riviera, the 12,000 m²
academy is Europe’s largest and most advanced training facility.
Tennis Europe Chief Executive Officer Thomas Hammerl commented, “We are delighted to continue our
relationship with the Mouratoglou Academy, which provides incomparable facilities for players. The Tennis
Europe Junior Tour represents a first step to a successful
professional tennis career, and the Mouratoglou Academy
enables these players to train for their goals with the best
possible resources and support.”
Patrick Mouratoglou said, “I am very glad to announce that
the Mouratoglou Academy pursues its partnership with
Tennis Europe for another year. Fostering the development
of future champions is in the DNA of the Academy and the
Tennis Europe Junior Tour constitutes an amazing pathway
for young players. This partnership makes perfect sense
and will surely bring great opportunities for the next
