Tennis legend Roger Federer has unveiled new tennis courts in Greenwich, designed by the internationally acclaimed street artists Low Bros – and created with the help of some Ravensbourne students.

Our BA (Hons) Advertising and Brand Design students Eugene Corpuz, Mae Farley, Charlie Jones, and Harriet Power have helped bring new life to the Bostall Gardens tennis courts, located not far from the Ravensbourne building in Greenwich.

The project was part of the Neon Legacy Initiative with Mercedes. The courts have been painted with an edgy street art-inspired design using grids and tennis ball motifs.

The students assisted the contemporary street artists the Low Bros, made up of Berlin-based brothers Christoph and Florin Schmidt.

Roger Federer, the 20-time tennis grand slam winner, officially opened the refurbished courts on Thursday 15 June 2023, where he met the students.

Strong links with industry are a core part of the Ravensbourne experience. This collaboration was forged by our BA (Hons) Advertising and Brand Design lecturer, Sunil Pawar.

Roger Federer told the London Post: “This court is one of the most beautiful in the world and I’m so happy to give it back to the community. I really hope this is going to be a place where people love to come, and just have the best times and create memories for a lifetime.”
