Our sport reaches and inspires so many, so I think it’s important to stand up for what we believe in. Wearing the SS22 collection by adidas on court is one way of showing that helping end plastic waste is something we need to address together, as an international community.”
Felix Auger-Aliassime, elite tennis player, said: “I’m part of a generation of players who care about having an impact on and off the court. When I think about the future, it’s not just about my future as a tennis player, but also about the future of the planet. . That’s why I wear the new adidas SS22 collection made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic or in part with recycled materials – to send a message that we can all do our part by helping to end plastic waste.“
