History of Wilson

WILSON Sporting Goods is an American Sports Equipment Manufacturer Company.

In 1913, the Wilson Sporting Goods Company was founded in Illinois, Chicago, United States, by Mr. Thomas E. Wilson.

Mr. Thomas E. Wilson was born in July 22, 1868 Ontario, Canada, London and died in August 4, 1958, Lake Forest , Illinios, United States.

Wilson makes equipment for many sports, among them baseball, badminton, football, basketball, fastpitch softball, golf, soccer, squash, pickleball, volleyball, racquetball, and tennis.

The company owns the brands Atec, DeMarini, EvoShield, Louisville Slugger, and Luxilon to provide sports equipment and protective gear for baseball, lacrosse, softball, and tennis.

Wilson is a major manufacturer of tennis racquets. The original Kevlar Pro Staff model racquets, known for their use by Pete Sampras, was heavy (more than 350 g strung) and small-headed (85 sq in.).

Roger Federer also used the same racquet model. Jim Courier and Stefan Edberg also used the Pro Staff Original. Stefan Edberg later switched to the Pro Staff Classic in 1991, which was the same racket (85 sq. in. with slightly rounded frame edges) but with different paint work.

In late 2009, Wilson unveiled their latest line of rackets, codenamed 20x, which they would later rename BLX. This line directly replaces their previous K-Factor series with all new technologies. Also, many pros use custom-made rackets that perform differently from the mass-produced versions. As of 2015, Roger Federer uses the Pro Staff RF97 Autograph model, which is heavy (340 g/12 oz unstrung) and larger (97 sq. in.).

Aside from tennis racquets, the Wilson Sporting Goods Company also makes tennis balls (including the official balls of the US Open Championship and, starting in 2020, the French Open major championships), shoes, balls, strings, clothes, and racquet bags.

Mr. Howard Head who was born on 31st July, 1914, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. and died on 3rd March 1991, Baltimore, Maryland, United States.

Head produces a wide range of products for skiing, snowboarding, swimming, tennis, and other racket sports. Head Ski Company produced one of the first successful metal-wood composite downhill skis, the Head Standard, and one of the first oversized metal tennis racquets.

In the late 1960s, a Tennis Division was created when Howard Head figured out a way of strengthening the Tennis Racquet by introducing the Aluminium frame.

In 1969, the idea became a success and was first introduced in the US Open.
In 1975, after Howard Head’s departure, one of the tennis players that Head sponsored, Arthur Ashe, won Wimbledon after defeating Jimmy Connors.

In 1987, Head started making athletic footwear and introduced the “Radial Tennis Shoes.”

In 1997, Head created the first titanium and graphite tennis racket. Over the next two years, Head acquired three more companies: Dacor, Blax, and Penn Racquet Sports.

Head also licenses its brand to makers of Clothing Apparel (including Shoes), Accessories, Bicycles, Skates, Watches, Balls, Fitness Equipment and Drinks.

In 2012, Head proved to be successful, with three major winners during the year: Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open, Maria Sharapova at the French Open, and Andy Murray at the US Open.
