Tennis Warehouse's History
Tennis Warehouse is the largest online tennis store in the world that was started by Drew Munster back in 1992 in San Luis Obispo, California as a 500-square-foot specialty tennis shop. It’s also Munster who founded ComputerWare in Palo Alto, California which by the way became the biggest Apple Macintosh-only dealer in the country. According to Munster, Tennis Warehouse began as more or less a software project for him with the idea of selling it rather than growing the business that ran it but at some point he saw more of an opportunity in the business than in selling the software. The website tennis-warehouse.com was launched in 1995 and full online ordering online began in 1998. The company offers more than just the ability of ordering shoes, apparel, racquets and other equipment on its official website but also a racquet demo program that consumers are raving about. Basically, the company is designed to offer convenience and selection that consumers cannot find anywhere else.
