Indian number one stars in MyGirl campaign
India’s number one female squash player Dipika Pallikal has signed an endorsement and supply deal with global sportswear brand Adidas.
The 23-year-old Pallikal, currently world number 11, will wear a range of Adidas Originals clothing off the court and in promotional material.
She will be used as part of the brand’s new ‘all in for #mygirls’ campaign.
“I am excited to join team Adidas and be supported by the leading sportswear brand in the world. ‘all in for #mygirls’ was a great way to start this partnership and it was super fun shooting with an all-girls team,” said Pallikal.
Pallikal joins Mithali Raj, the captain of the Indian women’s cricket team, and Indian tennis star Sania Mirza as part of the new Adidas campaign.
