Posted: Feb 26 2018

San Francisco, California (February 19, 2018) – Turn Gymnastics Apparel (TURN) is proud to announce a new three-year sponsorship deal to become the Official Technical Apparel Supplier to German Team Champions, KTV Straubenhardt.

Commenting on the deal, David Eaton, TURN Managing Director said: “We are extremely excited about establishing a new partnership with KTV Straubenhardt. The team’s recent achievements speaks volumes for the impressive club model they have established, and we look forward to being part of their future successes. We worked hard on creating a uniform that is befitting to the club’s world class line up of gymnasts, with an aesthetic that is both in-keeping with the clubs history, combined with a modern twist.”

KTV Straubenhardt Team Manager and Poly Rack CEO Andreas Rapp added:

“We are very happy to have TURN on board as one of KTV’s main sponsors, in providing our competition uniforms. With its modern style and personalized design, TURN was able to deliver exactly what we needed as club. All of our team members love the uniforms and especially our Olympic athletes are very pleased with the outstanding design as well as fit and function.

Great work by the team at TURN and we are looking forward to a long and successful partnership.”

The initial contract became effective January 1, 2018, with the new TURN/KTV Straubenhardt uniforms to be first worn with the start of the new Deutsche Turnliga on March 3, 2018 against KTV Obere Lahn.


TURN was born from an idea to give male gymnasts product that truly defines the sport of Men’s Gymnastics; so often overlooked for the glitter and sparkles of women’s gymnastics. Designed and developed by male gymnasts for male gymnasts, TURN has created a line of product that performs better, feels better, and looks better. Established in 2011 and based in California’s San Francisco Bay Area, TURN is also now available via licensed partners in Europe and Japan.

Since forming in 1987, KTV Straubenhardt’s rise to the top has been astronomic. After only eight years, the club had already won promotion to the top tier of German gymnastics, and by 2005 had been crowned DTL Champions for the first time.

The club is best known for the impressive lineup of big name gymnasts such as Marcel Nyugen, Andreas Bretschneider and David Belyavskiy, but the development work of its own junior talent has ensured a deep squad of talent that one back-to-back titles in 2016 and 2017. In southern Germany, KTV Straubenhardt is one now recognized as one of the most successful clubs, which was recognized in 2010 when the German Gymnastics Federation awarded the KTV Straubenhardt the title of DTB-Turn-Zentrum.
