Italian sportswear brand Diadora presents an upcoming colorway in its Tennis 270 silhouette. Part of Diadora’s Fall/Winter 2011 Heritage Collection, the kicks pay tribute to the original 1970s clay court design with contemporary “vintage” detailing featured throughout. Look out for a release in the coming months.

The Museum holds personal collections of equipment, dress and archive material relating to Wimbledon champions, pioneer players and stars of the court from each generation. This collection is continually updated with new material from competitors on the current professional circuit.
