It all started when...
Lara Evans and Kristin Nevins, the founders of Club & Court, met through their daughter's school but bonded over tennis at Merion Cricket Club, famous for its grass courts that have seen some of the greatest matches of all time.
As friends and teammates, we share a love of tennis‚ both the sport and the attire of '70s and '80s tennis icons. But we often wondered why it was so difficult to find current tennis dresses that were sporty and classic‚ and, better yet, could be worn on and off the court. After a couple of seasons musing about starting our line of ladies‚ tennis apparel that was attractive, functional, and captured the spirit and style of old-school tennis‚ our company was born. As the founders of club & court, we are busy balancing work, family, and time for exercise and socializing‚ and the tennis court is our happy place. We spent nearly a year creating modern tennis attire, with classic, beautiful lines and embellishments, but that also moves gracefully from one activity to the next‚ a dress that we could wear from the court to a meeting, school activity, or to the market. While the inspiration sprung from vintage tennis fashion, it evolved to modern fabrics and silhouettes, soft palettes, and bold prints.
