85 years of love for sport
"We must always hope to play better than we've ever played before."
Since its beginnings in 1933, Lacoste has supported athletes of tennis and golf who believe in the beauty of the game and always strive for excellence.
Three legends; the same Lacoste spirit
Guy Forget, Gustavo Kuerten, and Mats Wilander: three unforgettable international players, who not only have a close relationship with Lacoste, but hold its values high.
Lacoste and golf
The Lacoste family enjoys a long love affair with golf. An enthusiastic golfer himself, René marries golf champion Simone Thion de la Chaume, 13-time winner of the French Championships. Their daughter Catherine, the only Amateur to have won the US Open, also boasts an impressive number of wins, confirming the family’s longstanding passion for the game.
Three stars in the golfing firmament
Holders of several world records which have rocketed them to the top of the golf rankings, brand ambassadors Thomas Levet, Patricia Meunier-Lebouc and Jean Van de Velde wear the Lacoste colours on and off the links.
