Dunlop has announced the launch of a new clothing range which will soon become a familiar sight on the global tennis circuit.
The new Dunlop Performance and Club ranges will be available globally and endorsed by several Team Dunlop players, including Kevin Anderson who has signed a new clothing deal in addition to his existing equipment contract.
“I am very excited to sign new apparel deal with Dunlop,” said Kevin Anderson. “I have been together with Dunlop for so many years, and Dunlop plays an integral part in my tennis career. I am delighted to represent Dunlop further by wearing the new apparel range.”
The male and female clothing has been developed in Japan with high quality performance fabrics and takes its design cue from the iconic Dunlop Flying D logo. The initial range will include t-shirts, shorts, jackets and track pants, available to purchase through specialist tennis retailers.
Anderson will be joined in wearing the clothing by Top 30 men’s player Nikoloz Basilashvili, the newest member of Team Dunlop. The Georgian number one, who reached a career high ranking of 16 in May last year, has signed a Dunlop apparel contract for 2020 and will wear the new clothing at the Australian Open later this month.
“I’m looking forward to joining Team Dunlop,” said Nikoloz Basilashvili. “It’s a brand with so much history that is recognized all over the world. I am proud to be playing with Dunlop apparel and working towards great things for the future of tennis.”
Other Dunlop players to wear the new range will be Max Purcell, Luksika Kumkhum, Zarina Diyas and Kurumi Nara.
“The launch of the new Dunlop clothing shows our ongoing commitment to tennis,” said Masahiro Asahino, Head of Tennis Division for SRI. “Dunlop is once again becoming synonymous with elite-level tennis and this new clothing range will be worn by several leading players on the men’s and women’s tours.
“Developed by our leading research and development team in Japan, there are some striking designs themed around the Flying D logo and a carefully chosen colour palette that both stay true to the Dunlop brand. We hope that they prove popular with players and coaches of all ages and abilities.”
