Dunlop Sports began in 1888 when John Boyd Dunlop invents and patents the pneumatic tire for racing bicycles. Dunlop enters the tennis ball market in 1923 and in 1932 launches the iconic Maxply tennis racquet that for the next 50 years would be used by legends including Rod Laver, Virginia Wade, and John McEnroe. This year Dunlop becomes the Official Tennis Ball of the Australian Open and the ATP Tour making it the most popular ball used on the ATP tour.
