Mattresses to help tennis players

Ask an elite athlete what tops their list for ultimate performance and they will say. "proper rest."

So a Japanese bedding manufacturer is partnering with the USTA.

Continuing a history of supporting the training and development of top athletes, airweave has announced a new partnership with the United States Tennis Association's (USTA) Player Development division. Airweave will be installing select mattress products at the USTA National Campus, providing athletes optimal rest and recovery to maximize their performance on and off the court.

The new USTA National Campus, located in Orlando, FL, invites players age 13-18 to train with Player Development. The Lodge, which will be outfitted with airweave Top Mattress and Portable mattress topper models, sleeps 40 athletes and has welcomed 212 individual players this year. Other dormitories and training facilities who trust airweave for providing the best sleep include IMG Academy, The Royal Ballet School in London, and the Paris Opera Ballet School.

Speaking on the partnership, airweave Founder and CEO, Motokuni Takaoka said, "Having the opportunity to teach so many of America's up-and-coming tennis players the importance of sleep and to have airweave be a part of their training regimen is an honor."

"Sleep and recovery is a key component for high-performance athletes," said Satoshi Ochi, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach, USTA Player Development. "Airweave's product will only help to enhance our athletes' quality of sleep and recovery and, therefore, their performance."

One of airweave's greatest assets has been their relationship with top businesses, institutions and athletes worldwide. Airweave was quickly adopted by top athletes striving for better sleep and performance whether at home or traveling thanks to our line of versatile mattress products. This interest allowed the company to produce years of sleep studies with Stanford University and IMG Academy on the relationship between sleep quality and bedding. Individual athletes who stay well-rested with airweave include top world ranked tennis player, Kei Nishikori, 2 -Time Master's Champion Bubba Watson, and Olympic Ice Dancing Champions Meryl Davis & Charlie White.
