ENCINO, Calif., March 26, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — With over 1,000 swimmers on the master’s swim team located throughout the Los Angeles area – that Lane Mates founder Sharon Hollander swims with – “It’s amazing that we had no discounts or coupons available for swimwear or gear,” says Hollander. So she took it upon herself to contact many of the more popular online swim suppliers to discuss group pricing, volume discounts and obtain the best prices on the net.
“Swimmers do not carry pens unlike other land based athletes, so it is difficult to network with other swimmers,” states Hollander. “As an avid swimmer, I realized there was no single place where I could: meet other swimmers, be educated on swimming topics, watch swimming videos, obtain workout sets, exchange ideas, find relevant information, and also shop for swimming gear and products. I created that network – Lane Mates – the place where Swimming, Networking and Shopping Meet!”
