In celebration of its sixth year as the Official Apparel Sponsor of the US Open Tennis Championships, Polo Ralph Lauren presents the Legends Clinic with Venus Williams. The event will be a live interactive virtual tennis clinic produced in partnership with Mercedes-Benz at New York’s SPORTIME Tennis Center on Randall’s Island August 26 at 2:00PM EST.
Seven-time Grand Slam Champion Venus Williams will answer questions, demonstrate technique and offer hints and tips on how to improve your game during this live one-hour interactive clinic. The clinic will be streamed live online exclusively at RalphLauren.com and accessible on mobile devices at m.ralphlauren.com/USOpen.
Ralph Lauren will design a limited-edition dress in partnership with Williams’ apparel brand Eleven to be worn by the champion during the Legends Clinic as well as a special limited-edition US Open polo shirt to accompany the collection. Fifteen percent of sales will be donated to the Women’s Sports Foundation.
“It is truly exciting to partner with Polo Ralph Lauren in this unique endeavor and to bring my professional expertise and personal experiences to tennis fans around the world,” said Venus Williams.
