NikeCourt Unveils Looks for Melbourne

During the height of the Australian summer, Melbourne welcomes the world’s top tennis players for the year’s first tennis major.

The tournament’s venue, established in 1988, is the jewel of the city’s sports precinct — which also includes rugby and cricket stadiums — and a powerful reminder of local affinity for all sport. For 2016, NikeCourt’s initial collection blends this passion with the traditions of the championship. Product spans practice, on-court performance and off-court sport style.
