Fred Perry Supports Working-Class Young Athletes In Urban Ping Pong Tournament
Popular tennis clothing line targets young table tennis players from the grassroots as tribute to their humble heritage.
Before becoming the first tennis player to win all four Grand Slam singles titles in the early 1930s, Fred Perry made his name as a table tennis world champion in 1929. Coming from a humble background, Perry competed and won against privileged players of his time and rose to become one of the greatest male players of all time. More than 80 years later, Fred Perry, the famous clothing label that bears the late master's name, pays tribute to this heritage by sponsoring an Urban Cup table tennis tournament.
