Our Good Dog Spot is excited to reveal our new Bellevue Tennis Collection, inspired by the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
The International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island works with tennis organizations around the world to promote and preserve the history of tennis. The Hall of Fame’s mission of preserving and promoting tennis history shines through in the design of the Hall of Fame Museum, found on the grounds of the old Newport Casino– site of the first US National Men’s Singles Championship. The grounds have a very “old-school tennis” look, invoking the legends who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame, as well as the dignified but fierce competition that is a trademark of tennis as a whole.
We were so inspired that we designed a new line of collars for the event. Designed to call back to that same history, the Bellevue Tennis Collection features classic tennis iconography. The crossed rackets invoke the fierce competition of the tennis legends found in the Hall of Fame. The checked patterns call back to the tennis net and lattice-work found throughout classic tennis grounds. The coloring invokes the Tennis Hall of Fame at three levels: Newport Casino Green showcases the grounds themselves; Legends Yellow reminds us of the legends enshrined in the Hall of Fame; and Victorian Blue calls back to the older history of tennis, and the era during which the Newport Casino was founded.
This week, the ITHF is hosting the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, a full eight days of tennis activities, including exhibition matches, clinics, and championship tournaments. The events culminate this weekend, with the ITHF Class of 2015 Induction Ceremony on Saturday, and the tournament finals matches on Sunday.
We have plenty of Bellevue Tennis collars and leads with us at the event, and they are also available online through our store.
Every Dog Should Look This Good
