The History of Slazenger
Founded in 1881 and headquartered in Derbyshire by Albert and Ralph Slazenger, the Slazenger name remains one of the world’s oldest surviving sporting brand names. Today, Slazenger sits under the Sports Direct umbrella of companies.
Targeting bat and racket sports – golf, cricket, and hockey namely – Slazenger’s tennis line is perhaps one of their most visible globally. It is the company that supplies the official tennis ball for Wimbledon.
