In 2000, when Babolat approached Leon and Felipe Echavarria to support the brand in its entry into the U.S. Market, the owners of Tennis Plaza were immediately sold. “From the beginning we liked the business philosophy, the way Babolat charts its course and doesn’t follow other brands, the way the company takes its time to do things the right way, and of course the way retailers are protected through exclusivity and pricing policies,” says Leon Echavarria, co-owner of TennisPlaza. Today, thanks to its continued and outstanding support of the brand, TennisPlaza has been named the Babolat Retailer of the Year.

“Leon and Felipe believe in our brand and it shows in the way TennisPlaza presents the products and how the staff really encourages customers to try them,” says David Dwelle, southern regional sales manager for Babolat USA. “They carry the full breadth of the Babolat offering, from racquets and strings to bags and footwear, giving us great visibility—the Echavarria brothers are true champions for the Babolat brand.”
