Serve, swing and slice in adidas tennis polo shirts
Boasting an ergonomic design that is made to move, adidas tennis polo shirts are worn by players during the hardcourt season. The breathable build absorbs moisture to keep you cool and confident, even when you’re trading groundstrokes on a hot day. Cut with a streamlined fit, the polo collar and three-button placket look good on and off the court. Some designs feature ventilated mesh panels under the arms and on the back to let your body breathe. Constructed from recycled polyester and Primegreen to conserve resources, the sustainable design of adidas tennis polo shirts is part of the brand’s long-term commitment to sustainability.
A brief history of the tennis polo shirt
The polo shirt is actually a misnomer, as they were actually first used for playing tennis. Until the 1920s, the impractical uniform for playing tennis consisted of a long sleeve white shirt, dress trousers and a tie. The first polo shirt was made from knit fabric with short, cuffed sleeves to allow movement and a ribbed collar that could be flipped up to protect the neck from the sun. The functional design quickly became popular with polo and golf players, and the ‘polo shirt’ name stuck.
Show your style on the court
Whether you’re playing weekend competitions or just starting out, adidas polo shirts are designed to let you move effortlessly on the court. Ideal for playing tennis in warm weather, tennis polo shirts for men and women are available in a range of colours and graphics. Classic and classy, some designs feature the 3-Stripes on the sleeves, while others have a minimal logo. Wear your tennis polo shirt with matching shorts or an adidas club skirt in a contrasting colour. To complete your match-ready outfit, choose from the excellent selection of adidas tennis shoes, depending on the playing surface.
