Our team at di snapback created this cap so every tennis lover out there can feel a little bit more Los Angeles. This is our 2023 version added under our original Tennis collection of artwork.
In 2020, during the earliest stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, when sheltering at home seemed an infinite reality, a neon green beacon of light shone through the darkness of mandatory isolation: tennis. A traditionally outdoor, largely socially distanced sport, known for its promise of good exercise and competitive companionship, it rose in popularity.
According to an annual study from the Physical Activity Council, 21.64 million Americans hit the courts in 2020, a 22.4 percent increase compared to 2019, after years of plateauing. Of those players, 6.78 million were either new to the sport or had returned after an extended period of time.
Tennis became a popular pandemic activity in Southern California in particular, with the lack of court-compromising weather making tennis a year-round sport. There are long wait times across the area at public facilities, and real estate agents say that tennis courts are in demand once again by homebuyers. “People were taking them out,” says Linda May of Hilton & Hyland. “Now there’s a complete revival. People are playing with their kids, and they are having tournaments on weekends.”
