This week we are talking to Kevin Niksich, who runs the tennis brand Tourna. Tourna's blue  overgrips are well known across the globe and are used by plenty of top professionals 🔥

Kevin's father started the company & Kevin now runs it along with his brother & father.

We talk about:

  • Origins of the grip
  • Working with Pete Sampras
  • Partnership with HEAD
  • Current Players using Tourna
  • Other grips & machines available

Kevin tells us some cool stories and talks a bit more about the brand and how it started. The company is still a family business - one that has taken over tennis!

Some of the players to have used Tourna: Sampras, Courier, Murray, Bryan Bros, Pliskova, Roddick, Shapovalov, Isner - the list goes on! 😮
