Sports accessories maker One Sports on Thursday launched its badminton rackets and boxing and mixed martial arts accessories that include a life-size training equipment, under the brand name of Thwack.
The Mumbai-based company, which made a debut in Singapore by launching these products there, has tied up with distributors in nine countries in Europe and three in Asia for making the products in these regions.
In Europe, it has tied up with distributors in the Netherlands, Belgium, the Luxembourg, Denmark, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and France; while in Asia it is present in China and Malaysia apart from the home market.

The domestic sport equipment market is around Rs 5,000 crore.
That apart, the company, a part of the city-based One Group, also plans to enter 12 more countries -- Finland, Poland, Ukraine, Britain, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and LatAm. It will launch its products in Europe next year.
"There is huge demand for sports accessories in global markets and especially for specialised products that we are offering. We plan to firm up distributors in these countries in the next three to four months," One Group managing director Akhil Ganatra said.
