As Team Europe prepares for the defense of The Solheim Cup 13-18 August, Official Clothing Supplier Abacus Sportswear has begun shipping an expansive wardrobe of more than 5,200 garments to be worn by players, caddies, officials and guests at Colorado Golf Club, Parker, USA.
The wardrobe for each of the 12 players alone adds up to 2,922 garments and includes long, short and sleeveless polos, lightweight pullovers, wind jackets and vest, trousers, skorts, shorts and socks, as well as waterproof suits to protect against rain storms.
A further 300 pieces of abacus® sportswear will be making their way to America for the 2013 European PING Junior Solheim Cup Team, featuring 12 of the best young female golfers.
Abacus Sportswear is also supplying the Ladies European Tour and its guests with an additional 2,000 items of clothing for use during the four-day event.
“This will be the fourth Solheim Cup we will have been involved with,” commented Chris Mattsson, designer at Abacus Sportswear. “The relationship began in 2007, when we designed the match outfits for Helen Alfredson’s team for the 10th edition of The Solheim Cup that was played at Halmstad GK, in Sweden.”
“Over the past seven years we have learned a tremendous amount from dressing and supporting some of the world’s best female golfers, which is now benefitting all of our customers,” added Chris Mattsson.
Commenting on creating her team’s wardrobe, Liselotte Neumann said: “Making 12 individuals of 12 different shapes and sizes all look good in the same outfit, takes practice and experience.
“Whether the girls are most comfortable in shorts or skirts, short or long-sleeved shirts, Abacus Sportswear makes sure there is something that suits each and every one of us, because, on a day where you have to perform at your best, you need to feel your best.
Liselotte Neumann added: “The brand’s experience of supplying the European Solheim Cup team over the past seven years is hugely important.”
