Tennis Night Sessions began at the US Open. These after dark sessions on packed stadia at Flushing Meadows have a special atmosphere unlike no other players encounter. The U.S. Open lights up the moonlit hours at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in the city that never sleeps New York City.
To celebrate the magic of these incredible matches Wilson today launch their Night Session Collection. Wilson Tennis embraces the popular feature of the year’s final major with the creation of a new Night Session collection, featuring three reflective tennis rackets, shoes and additional gear.
The Wilson Night Session Collection
The highlight of the Night Session collection comes via the Blade V8 98, Clash V2 100 and Pro Staff V13 97, all with a black-based design featuring reflective detailing, part of a larger push from Wilson to use racket aesthetics—whether paint, texture or otherwise—to add a unique element to the frame’s engineering.
“When the light comes just right off the racket,” says Brad Schantz, senior manager of design, Wilson Racquet Sports, “there is a feeling of surprise and delight. It is not enough for us to have a different color palette. We do that and it is interesting, but we want to push into a space nobody has ever seen in the market. When you unbox a Wilson racket, we want you to go, ‘Woah.’”
