A Paris Point of View
One great thing about the summer season is the sporting calendar and this summer we’ve been greatly blessed. In addition to the annual sporting festivities, we also have the European Football Championships and the Rio Olympics. That said there is something so pure about the summer of tennis, starting with The French Open – or Roland Garros as some prefer.
Maybe it’s the 125 year history, maybe it’s the fact the tournament takes place in cultural Paris, or perhaps the fact that it’s played on the grueling surface of clay, giving it a gladiatorial feel.
NikeCourt’s on-court looks for the tournament feature modern design elements and a spectrum of blues.
Underarm gussets enable optimal range of motion, while laser-perforated ventilation and Dri-FIT fabric help keep players cool and comfortable.
As the world’s top tennis players return to the clay intent on capturing the season’s second Grand Slam, NikeCourt have introduced a collection in honor of the tournament’s host city, Paris. France’s signature color, blue, is prevalent in all the signature styles, designs that reflect the city’s reputation for timeless style. Furthermore, the comprehensive offerings deliver innovation for the full ceremony of tennis; from practice to on-court performance to off-court sport style. With France hosting the European Football Championships this summer, the blue coloured apparel will no doubt draw cries of “Allez les bleus!” around Court Philippe Chatrier, as the gladiators take centre stage this Roland Garros.
