Limited-edition fabrics and styles to give girls pizzazz on court, proudly designed and made in NZ.
The story behind my brand...
Finding suitable tennis outfits in New Zealand has been a mission for years! Have you, like me, got fed up with the long process of trawling through online stores to find tennis gear, only to be disappointed at the checkout that they wouldn't deliver to NZ or the shipping cost was astronomical? Have you also visited pro shop after retail shop to find nothing flattering... or even in your size? Don’t even talk about trying to find an attractive team uniform: a style that suited all shapes and sizes turned out to be just fantasy. I kept thinking there must be a better solution. I was certain that New Zealand women and girls deserved to have more options, as we tennis players all know that if you feel good and are comfortable on court, your confidence levels are high and you can just concentrate on playing your best game.
So, LPGP tennis clothing was born. Having NZ made means that I can personally oversee the quality of the garments. My manufacturer understands our sizing and that we kiwi ladies don't like our sports garments to be too short. We like things a little looser and, while we are big fans of black, we would also like a few colourful options on court. I hope you like my first season’s collection. I am here to listen to what NZ women want. Talk to me if you are trying to find a different colour or style. I can also work with you to design team outfit or club uniform that appeals to all.
My motto is to “Look good and play good tennis”.
LGPG tennis recommends that you are sun smart. UPF is the rating system used for apparel in Australia. It is similar to the SPF rating that we use in NZ. UPF-rating clothing alone will not fully cover you. Total UV protection requires a multi-faceted approach:
Wear UV-protective clothing.
Liberally apply sunscreen with a high SPF rating to all exposed areas of skin.
Wear sunglasses that offer 100 percent UV-ray protection.
Seek shade whenever possible.
Monitor—and limit—the amount of time you expose yourself to UV radiation, especially during peak daylight hours—roughly from 9am to 3pm
Remember that filtered sun can still damage your skin, so protect yourself on cloudy days too.
Wearing UV-protective clothing and these other precautions give you a lot of tools to keep your skin healthier. Be smart about the sun and it will be easier to soak up the fun when you’re outdoors.
