Adidas has launched its SS22 Tennis Collection, which features graphics inspired by Paris’ Serres d’Auteuil botanical gardens and green spaces – and sustainable materials.
The collection is made in part using either Parley Ocean Plastic or recycled content, part of the brand’s strategy to help reduce plastic waste.
The garments in the SS22 collection are also designed to be functional on court with Adidas’ Heat.RDY technology helping athletes feel cool, dry and confident.
Next-gen athletes including Elena Rybakina, Felix Auger-Aliassime and Maria Sakkari have debuted the clothing, embracing the initiative as athletes passionate about sustainability issues.
“As part of the next generation of tennis players, I see a possibility for tennis to be more than a sport, but a platform for change,” said tennis player, Elena Rybakina.
“Our sport reaches and inspires so many, so I think it’s important to stand up for what we believe in. Wearing the SS22 collection by Adidas on court is one way of showing that helping end plastic waste is something we need to address together, as an international community.”
Tennis player Dominic Thiem (pictured above) added: “I think it’s important to use my position as a tennis player to raise awareness for our planet and what we can do to protect it. That’s why I look forward to wearing the new Adidas SS22 collection made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic or in part with recycled materials. The collection is an example of what we can create when we’re inspired to help end plastic waste.”
The SS22 Tennis Collection is on sale at Adidas retail channels.
