Robin Söderling's sportsbrand
In 2013, tennis star Robin Söderling founded the brand RS Sports which provides premium products in three divisions: RS Tennis, RS Padel and RS Sportswear. The idea for the brand was to create products for "people in motion".
First was RS Tennis where Söderling developed his own tennis ball which quickly became a world success, this also resulted in more products being developed, including tennis strings, tennis wraps and bags.
At a time when Padel was completely exploding in Sweden, Söderling chose to broaden his portfolio and launched RS Padel. The first product to be launched in the segment was also a ball here, namely Padel Tour X, which was developed in collaboration with padel pro Simon Vasquez. Next up was a premium racket together with padel star Cayetano Rocafort. Since then, the majority of padel rackets, padel wraps, padel bags and other accessories in the sport have been launched.
In 2021, clothing from RS Sports was also launched, under the name RS Sportswear. The ambition when RS created training clothes was to offer you the world's most comfortable training clothes. Whether you're going out for a run, going to the gym, power walking or just want nice, relaxed clothes for everyday use, RS is perfect for you.
