Who we are

Fromuth Tennis started nearly 50 years ago as an art store offering custom framing in a row home in West Reading, Pennsylvania. In response to the tennis boom of the 1970s, Fromuth started carrying the few items people were looking for the get into the game: racquets, balls, strings, footwear, and yes, those really short shorts. Over time, and as our sport grew, the tennis business overwhelmed the art supply shop. Jim Fromuth, fresh out of college, took the business to the next level by committing to large inventories and distributing to pro shops, clubs, coaches, and retailers.

In 1992, my wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to purchase Fromuth Tennis. The "bones" of the business were all there: great Customer Service Specialist, same-day shipping, a huge inventory, and a culture that was widely recognized as the best in the industry. We immediately recognized that our job was to leave it alone, just market the heck out of it.

Twenty-five years (and a lot of gray hair) later, we are proud to have thrived and survived! We measure success in giving people good jobs, helping our local community, and in growing the game we love. We have strong partnerships with all of the top brands and organizations in the industry, and if you are lucky enough to make tennis your business, we'd love to be your partner too!

Sincerely,
Pat Shields
