Contact: Chuck Vietmeier
200 Waterfront Drive

09/28/05 - Gamma Sports, makers of the number one rated string product line in tennis, today congratulates Team Gamma/Fischer member Jim Kohr on his victories at the 2005 USPTA International Championship. The event was held in Marco Island, Florida during the USPTA World Conference on Tennis. Kohr won the Men’s 35’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles Draws and was a semifinalist in the Men’s 35’s Singles Draw. Kohr played the tournament with the New Fischer Magnetic Speed Racquet and Gamma’s acclaimed Live Wire® Professional™ String, the only synthetic string to ever be rated higher than natural gut by the USRSA.

“Jim has been a great member of Team Gamma/Fischer for years“ said Matt Ferrari, President of Gamma Sports. “We sincerely congratulate him on his victories and look forward to many more for him in the future.”

This was a repeat victory for Kohr in the Men’s Doubles Draw. He and partner George Zink won the 2004 event. Jim has been a Team Gamma member for 11 years. He resides in York, Pennsylvania where he is the Director of Tennis at Country Club of York, Outdoor Country Club, and Yorktown Racquet and Fitness Club.
