NEW USTA UMPIRE CLOTHING INFORMATION
The USTA has created a new USTA logo and a newly designed National Shirt for USTA Officials. We have teamed with new supplier – Honig’s Whistle Stop, Inc of Ann Arbor, Michigan…the largest and best of the sports officiating supply companies. We have launched a new program with Honig’s for Officials to purchase the new shirt along with other top quality garments at competitive prices. In addition, Honig’s will supply all Officials who purchase a new shirt with patches featuring the new logo for you to patch existing apparel that you may already own -- in order to help to minimize your costs.
The new shirt is a required garment for all USTA Officials as of January 1, 2007. It is our goal to have shirts available for shipment in early December. In addition, effective immediately, we require that a patch of the new USTA logo be used to cover all previous logos on all items including jackets, sweaters and bags. To get these patches call Honig’s at 888-468-3284 (toll free) or go to www.honigs.com/usta website. There, you can order the shirt along with other garments and accessories. All items ordered will be billed and shipped to you in December.
