Home / WHO WE ARE

I’m often asked, ’What possessed you to create your own tennis racquet? And my response, always, is that it’s about not settling when I know we can do better.”
-FURI Sport Co-founder & CEO Erick Mathelier

For decades, tennis has been all about big names and variations on outdated culture. Those who didn’t fit into that mold have long been ignored. That ends here.

FURI SPORT was inspired by the story of co-founder, Erick Mathelier. Erick grew up in Brooklyn, New York. The son of a single Caribbean immigrant mother, his life trajectory was changed because of his passion for tennis. His first plane ride was for a tennis tournament in Bermuda. He earned a Division 1 tennis scholarship, and then went on to earn a master’s degree.

We know the other side of tennis because we are the other side. From our New York City headquarters, we’re smashing old school style with our family of technically-enhanced racquets. We’re disrupting high-performance equipment, accessories, and apparel design—injecting them with the cues and codes of urban culture.

Our mission is to help you become the best version of yourself. Whether you’re a competitive athlete, a recreational player, or just a lover of the game who wants to live an active lifestyle, our equipment, accessories, and apparel will help you succeed on and off the court.

We want you to have the confidence that our products will help take your game to the next level. Pro-level products for all players, directly from us to you.
