Beach Tennis USA (BTUSA), the organization responsible for the sport of beach tennis in North America, today announced a strategic partnership with The International Tennis Federation (ITF), the world governing body of tennis, to expand the global development of the sport of beach tennis. Under the new agreement, BTUSA may propose tournaments for sanction by the ITF as part of the ITF Beach Tennis Tour. All sanctioned tournaments will contribute to the international player ranking system and appear on the ITF’s official tour calendar.

BTUSA, founded by New York City real estate developer Marc Altheim, launched the first pro beach tennis tour in the U.S. in 2005 and has overseen the sport’s steady domestic growth, mostly through grassroots efforts in South Florida, Southern California, Chicago, and Long Island.

“Beach Tennis USA has done a great job introducing, developing and promoting beach tennis in the U.S. since 2005 and we look forward to combining our knowledge and resources to further grow this exciting and dynamic sport in North America. With the ITF Beach Tennis Tour now in its third year we are thrilled to welcome the 2010 US National Championships onto the calendar, which will be one of only three tournaments this year to offer players maximum ranking points towards the ITF Beach Tennis World Ranking,” said Jackie Nesbitt, Head of Professional Circuits at the ITF.

“We’re very excited to be aligned with the ITF. The success of beach tennis as a truly global pro and recreational sport rests in our ability to unify the many countries and organizations currently playing, and to standardize the rules of play on an international level,” said Marc Altheim, BTUSA’s Founder and Commissioner. “This partnership with the ITF is one major step in that direction,” added Altheim.

The company plans to add additional varieties in early 2011, including a line of gluten-free Q.bel.

Q.bel all-natural wafer bars and rolls were launched in January 2009, with an initial national rollout by Whole Foods Market. Since then, many other leading retailers in the health and natural foods industries have selected Q.bel in response to consumer demand for healthier, great-tasting snacks. In the twelve months ending in December 2009, Q.bel sold over 1 million candy bars and has already attained the number one rank in the “All-Natural Chocolate Wafer” category.
