LOVEALL ANNOUNCED AS SPONSOR OF CLIFF DRYSDALE TENNIS 2016 LADIES RETREATS
Cliff Drysdale Tennis is pleased to announce LoveAll apparel as the presenting sponsor of the 2016 Ladies Tennis Retreats held at various luxury resorts around the US with tennis programs managed by Drysdale.
Founded in 2009 by Kim Cleary and Shelia Bishop of the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas, LoveAll specializes in uniquely designed clothing relating to various sports. The tennis apparel line has become highly sought after, especially by female players ages 29-65. Today, LoveAll supplies products to over 250 retailers across North America and Europe, and tennis industry giants including the WTA, USTA, and Mylan World Team Tennis.
Cliff Drysdale Retreats offer unmatched ladies getaways hosted by an international team of tennis directors and their professional staff. Currently offered in Florida at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne (Miami) and Omni Amelia Island Plantation (Amelia Island), and in California at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa (Carlsbad) and Omni Rancho Las Palmas (Palm Springs); these luxurious, 5 day, ladies-only “camps” offer exciting and educational drill and match play sessions, team competitions and games combined with first-class accommodations and delightful dining.
As part of the partnership, LoveAll will receive the Cliff Drysdale Tennis designations of “Official Ladies Style Choice” and “2016 Ladies Retreats presented by LoveAll.” Current apparel lines will be soon be available in select Drysdale-managed pro shops in Texas and Florida, as well as a release of a new custom-designed line with exclusive Retreat and Drysdale-branded apparel in the last quarter of 2015. Perks for Drysdale customers include special gifts for Retreat alumni, and Drysdale members everywhere will receive exclusive shopping options and discounts for apparel available exclusively online.
“We are very excited for our partnership with LoveAll,” states Scott Colebourne, a Vice President of Cliff Drysdale Tennis and Director of the wildly popular Ladies Retreats. “Shelia and Kim embrace the passion and enthusiasm for tennis and the accompanying lifestyle that emanates from each and every one of our Retreat attendees. LoveAll is the perfect fashion choice for the female tennis fan. In our test market we could not keep LoveAll apparel on the shelves, often selling out of a particular style in one day. Cliff Drysdale Retreat attendees and tennis enthusiasts company-wide are in for plenty of fun, unique fashion and accessories as a result of this relationship!
LoveAll co-owner, Shelia Bishop, states, “We are so passionate about the fun-loving and competitive ladies of our favorite sport. We are thrilled our clothes celebrate their vibrant spirit and lifestyle. Bringing LoveAll and Cliff Drysdale Tennis Retreats together is what we call a Win Win!”
LoveAll will be available in October 2015 at shops in New Braunfels, Texas, and Weston and Key Biscayne, Florida with more locations added in 2016.

LoveAll began in April of 2009 as a result of Kim Cleary and Shelia Bishop, tennis partners, designing a specialty t-shirt for a group of ladies attending a weekend tennis retreat. After a successful getaway and fun tee design, the way was paved for additional t-shirt designs which brought LoveAll to the forefront of pro shops, Country Clubs and thus followed the big online retail chains, Tennis Express, Tennis Warehouse and Midwest Sports. Over the past six years, LoveAll has provided licensed custom apparel for USTA Texas, produced both the Strong Is Beautiful and the new #PowerToInspire campaign endorsed tees for the WTA, and also shirts for Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Cup in 2014 to name a few. They have especially enjoyed producing Billie Jean King’s signature tee, “Pressure Is A Privilege”. LoveAll continues to be inspired by the passion of the recreational tennis player and many of their humorous sayings and designs originate from their personal on court matches and team experiences.
