Our Ambassadors

Since launching the business in late 2020, as well as having the opportunity to do what we love and sell amazing clothing to fantastic customers, we have also had the utter privilege of getting to know some of the top players and characters from the Golden Age personally. Some of them even agreed to become ambassadors for us. We are so lucky to have every single one of them on board here at Golden Age of Tennis and couldn't be prouder of the association we have with them. Not only were they consummate professionals on court, they are brilliant people off it with incredible insight and fascinating stories. We really hope you enjoy reading them.
