We first met Los Angeles-based photographer Radka Leitmeritz a few years back at The Courts while she was on a commercial shoot. Bursting with energy and always with a camera nearby, we were drawn into Radka’s world and have never really left. With a background in fashion and passion for tennis, Radka’s latest project with Porsche, Court Supremes, celebrates the power of the women who play the game. We recently caught up with Radka to talk about the project and the inspiration behind it.

Situated in the center of the Anza-Borrego Desert, The Courts at Anza-Borrego is a unique sports venue with its own special magic. For experts and novices alike, to play tennis there is a dream. During their Pre-COVID, inaugural Low Desert Open tennis tournament, Weed Sport had the honor to host our signature Recovery Zone to help the players wind down between matches and give the spectators some extra relaxing vibes throughout the afternoon. Accompanied by great music and even better tennis, the Low Desert Open was a grand success. Looking back, we can only hope to achieve that level of intimacy again in a crowd full of like-minded strangers.
