WILSON TO JOIN ANOTHER RACQUET SPORT: PLATFORM TENNIS

     Wilson Sporting Goods Co. has announced they will begin to
manufacture platform tennis racquets.  Platform tennis is played
on a court one fourth the size of a tennis court and "enclosed to
shield players from the elements."  Marcraft of Passasic, NJ, is
currently the only major firm producing paddles, but beginning in
September, Wilson will introduce their own line, along with other
accessories such as bags and gloves.  John Embree, Wilson Racquet
Business Dir, said about 30,000 to 40,000 paddles are sold each
year, and that Wilson believes "the company can sell 10,000 to
15,000 of that total" (George Lazarus, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 6/2).
