Antigua Tennis announces 2014 women’s apparel
January 19, 2014
Peoria, AZ — The Antigua Group, Inc., which will be celebrating its 35th year in business in 2014, today announced its new line of women’s tennis apparel, split into Performance, Essentials and Outerwear collections. Showcasing both active, contemporary looks and classic, traditional designs, every piece shares one characteristic: they are made with fabrics designed to help women compete and look their best under all conditions.
“We’ve revamped our women’s line for 2014 with seven new styles and some great new colors,” said Ron McPherson, President and CEO of Antigua Group. “Each piece features one of our two performance fabrics, Desert Dry™ or Desert Dry™ Xtra Lite (D2XL) which enable the apparel to stand up to competitive play in the heat or cold.”
“What we’re particularly proud of in our 2014 women’s line is the variety we offer,” said Sean Gregg, Director of Product Development. “Whether it’s color, design or the ability to embroider, players and retailers have a multitude of options. For instance, some of our Essentials and Outerwear pieces are available in over 20 color combinations.”
The Tennis Performance collection has expanded to include 14 items, ranging from polos to skorts to jackets. Most come in at least five color options. The Essentials collection is made up of 10 different tops, some available in as many as 22 colors. The Outerwear collection has five tops, including hoodies, half zip fleeces and long sleeve full zip jackets. Some are available in as many as 26 colors. Finally, new for 2014 is a more complete headwear offering, with five pieces, all available in multiple colors.
Antigua: Custom Embroidery Specialists
Antigua’s custom embroidery capabilities make it the perfect option for tennis teams. Any piece can be embroidered, and with small minimums and quick lead times, ordering is quick and easy. Antigua’s art department is always willing to help retailers or teams with their logo in any way possible, including design. Most orders can be turned around in one to two weeks, and logoed orders can be as small as 24 pieces (or one piece for non-logoed apparel).
Desert Dry™ and Desert Dry™ Xtra Lite Technologies Explained
Antigua’s initial line of tennis apparel features its proprietary Desert Dry™ and Desert Dry™ Xtra Lite technologies. “D2XL is tailor made for tennis because of its ability to help rapidly wick away moisture,” said Gregg. “It’s also extremely light, which gives tennis players a more flexible feel and allows heat to dissipate more quickly. Desert Dry is slightly heavier and we tend to use that in our Outerwear collections.”
Online Retail Store Now Open to Consumers
Antigua recently redesigned its ‘Shop.Antigua.com’ website, and it is now up and running for tennis fans to see and purchase some of its tennis apparel.
