FlingSticks available at 10 Scheels locations, including the largest sporting goods store in the United States.
In another sign of the growing popularity of FlingGolf, New Swarm is pleased to announce that Scheels Sporting Goods is now offering several options of FlingSticks in its stores from North Dakota to Texas, Minnesota to Nevada. The chain is also offering FlingSticks through its website for national customers.
"While we weren't actively considering jumping into national retail with our equipment, we had an eye on Scheels as a potential future partner" said Alex Van Alen, CEO of New Swarm. "Initially, our first World League FlingGolf champion Ken Pytluk had introduced himself and the sport locally at the Johnstown, Colorado Scheels location, then I learned more from Crossnet Founder Chris Meade about his very positive experience with Scheels. So when Scheels called us several months ago after seeing us on a re-airing of Shark Tank, we became comfortable and then excited to move forward with them. They are a top notch organization, and importantly for us, they are committed to understanding our growing sport and product and educating their customers about them. We are looking forward to a long and lasting relationship with the team at Scheels"
Scheels is an employee owned sporting goods chain throughout the midwest, with 31 locations including the largest all-sports sporting goods store (331,000 square feet) in the United States at The Colony in Texas. Having FlingSticks available at Scheels for new customers to hold, feel and trial will reinforce FlingGolf's continued growth across the US.
