At Vitalyte, we’re about so much more than just electrolyte replacement drinks. We are all about celebrating athletic achievement in all its forms. Team Vitalyte consists of some of the world’s most celebrated champions, all of whom are leaders and inspirations in their respective sports, and who continue to set new standards of excellence. James Duckworth is one such champion.
Vitalyte is proud to have such an esteemed athlete as James Duckworth on our team. For those who don’t know, Duckworth is an Australian professional tennis player who is ranked one of the top players in the world by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP). He has won three titles and even reached the semi-finals as a junior in the 2010 French Open. In 2012, he took part in his first ATP main draw event at the world-famous Brisbane International, and he continues to set new records and reach new milestones in the world of tennis.
Duckworth was born in Sydney, New South Wales, and took an interest in tennis at a very young age. While attending Sydney Church of England Grammar School, he joined the school tennis team and was awarded numerous AAGPS Premierships. These accolades enabled him to win a scholarship to the Australian Institute of Sport, where he honed his skills even further. One might argue that his success was meant to be, as he comes from a long line of legendary tennis champions. He is the grandson of Beryl Penrose, winner of the 1955 Australian Open singles and doubles titles.
As one of Australia’s top tennis professionals, Duckworth continues to best some of the world’s highest-ranking competitors, like Gilles Simon, Jarkko Nieminen, and Blaz Kavcic. His enormous success is the result of hard work and unyielding determination, and he also heralded the benefits of Vitalyte during those grueling competitions. According to Duckworth:
"As tennis players, we follow the summer around the world, therefore we are often playing in hot conditions. I'm a heavy sweater so when you combine that with the conditions I play in, I am constantly losing fluids when I'm playing and training. I need the best products to replace all the fluids I'm losing.
I have tried lots of different electrolyte drink mixes and I have found Vitalyte to be the best. Vitalyte contains all the essential electrolytes I need whilst also having a sensational taste."
