BIOGRAPHY

Slazenger was officially established in 1881, although its roots go back to the early nineteenth century. The brand has an impressive sporting heritage and is recognized as a pioneer in the development of various disciplines. Just four years after the All England Tennis and Croquet Club held their very first championship, Slazenger introduced the new complete set of sportswear for lawn tennis to the general public, based on a similar format to that  used by croquet players.

 

In 1902, Slazenger became the official sponsor and supplier of balls at the Wimbledon Championships, currently being the longest sponsor in sporting history. In 1966, Slazenger collaborated with England during the FIFA world cup, won by the home team, acting as official supplier. In fact, Slazenger created an orange ball made especially for the tournament which, now, can be seen in the National Football Museum, Preston, UK.

 

Besides tennis, croquet and football, Slazenger has created a variety of equipment for sports such as golf, cricket, badminton, ping pong, squash, padel tennis, hockey , archery , target shooting , bowling , sailing and trail bike riding and also worked during World War II, making military clothing.
