Most tennis players I know have a bit of a sweet tooth. So it’s no surprise to me that Maria Sharapova’s new line of candy is a big hit!


We just got Sugarpova in at Tennis Warehouse! And to say that there was a buzz around the office when this candy hit our desks would be putting it lightly! When our staff saw the fun, sweet and colorful candies we couldn’t wait to tear into the bags of candy and give it a taste!

The Sugarpova candy features four distinctive categories of fruity, sweet fun! Everything from gummies, soft chews, sour gummies and even gum tennis balls are featured in this line of candy. With fun names, shapes and flavors — you will be craving these sweets after a long practice session!

Take a bite out of the sweeter side of tennis and grab some style for your smile with Sugarpova!

Play with heart,
