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.
As a nod to Melbourne’s love of sport, practice apparel for the tournament features classic sport primary colors and is built with Dri-FIT fabrics designed to help athletes handle the soaring temperatures of the Australian summer.
NikeCourt’s on-court apparel for Australia introduces new silhouettes and technologies dressed in colors and stripes inspired by the tournament’s host city.
Sport style apparel for Melbourne honors the winners who have taken a celebratory swim in the neighboring Yarra River with dip-dye prints and waved stripes.
