MACGREGOR & SPORT SUPPLY GROUP REACH AGREEMENT

 MACGREGOR & SPORT SUPPLY GROUP REACH AGREEMENT
 GREENVILLE, S.C., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- MacGregor Sports and


Fitness Inc. ("the company") (OTC), announced today that its wholly- owned subsidiary, MacGregor Sports Products Inc. ("MacGregor") has sold its trademark rights to the team sports institutional and recreational channels of distribution in the United States, Canada and Mexico to Sport Supply Group (AMEX: GYM), Dallas. The sale was consummated for an undisclosed sum of money and various other considerations.
 "This is a good deal for both MacGregor and Sport Supply," said a spokesman for the company. "Sport Supply has great strength in the team sports institutional marketplace and their 60,000 customers will unquestionably give broad based exposure in the youth market to the MacGregor brand. We expect this to have a favorable impact on purchases of MacGregor products at the retail level."
 The company estimates that the channels to be serviced by Sport Supply Group would have constituted approximately 7-10 percent of MacGregor's potential revenue base.
 MacGregor has retained its trademark rights for all retail channels of distribution inclusive of sporting goods dealers, mass merchandisers and sporting goods chains, as well as all other forms of distribution domestically and internationally. In addition to the MacGregor marketing of traditional team sports it is expanding its product lines into fitness and bicycles. The MacGregor brand, which is believed to be one of the most recognized sporting goods brands in the world, is expected to gain substantially greater exposure on the broader distribution of MacGregor branded goods.
 MacGregor recently became a publicly-traded company and is in the process of applying for a National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation ("NASDAQ") listing.
