Everything began in 1966 when the company was founded, in northern Italy, by Sergio Tacchini, the International Tennis player who was a singles player in the Davis Cup for Italy from 1959 to 1966.The brand immediately introduced great innovation in style, using colours and stripes at a time when tennis players only wore white.

During the 70's and 80's, the brand's name became a synonymous with style and elegance but mostly it became an international leader in professional tennis with worldwide recognition through celebrity endorsements from some of the greatest tennis champions of all time; John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Martina Navratilova, Gabriela Sabatini, Pete Sampras, Pat Cash, Vitas Gerulaitis, Martina Hingis and many more.

During the 80s and 90s, footwear and accessories were added to the collection, as well as product offerings in new sectors such as Ski, Golf, Beach and Leisurewear. All infused with Sergio Tacchini's Italian style of quality, innovation and 'active elegance'.
