KT Tape Enters the Tennis World at BNP Paribas Open

Lumos Inc., creator of KT Tape, announces the official arrival of its kinesiology therapeutic tape into the tennis world as KT Tape exhibits at the BNP Paribas Open Expo at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden this month. As the first and only consumer brand of kinesiology therapeutic tape, KT Tape is bringing drug-free pain relief to the tennis court.

With a great deal of recent use by top tennis players at several major tournaments this year, KT Tape is gaining momentum as a staple for tennis enthusiasts. Recently featured on the Tennis Channel, KT Tape’s plethora of applications and long lasting results make it a go-to item for tennis related injuries, including shin splints, rotator cuff pain, Achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow and quad or hamstring strain.  It is the only solution that will provide pain relief and support before, during, and after a match—without restricting motion.

“We are so excited to be forging new partnerships with the tennis community,” says KT Tape Vice President Jim Jenson. “Riding the wave of momentum from increased visibility at major tennis events, we're proud to make it official by exhibiting at the BNP Paribas Open so that we can bring drug-free pain relief to tennis professionals and amateurs alike.”

The BNP Paribas Open is an ATP World Tour Masters Tournament and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Premier event. Held at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, near Palm Springs, CA, the Open is  the largest tennis event next to the four Majors than make up the Grand Slam.

KT Tape will exhibit at the BNP Paribas Open Expo March 8- 15. The Expo will be located on the grounds of the Indian Wells Tennis Garden at 78200 Miles Avenue in Indian Wells, CA. At the KT Tape booth at the Expo, the KT Tape team will offer free taping demonstrations and advice to tennis enthusiasts and will also make KT Tape available to all players competing in the tournament. Members of the KT Tape Team will also be available for media interviews via appointment.
