Beach Rotana Abu Dhabi kicks off Tennis Open 2013
Avid tennis players from around the Gulf region join in the exciting tournament held at the Beach Club
Abu Dhabi, April 13, 2013 – Beach Rotana kicked off its annual Tennis Open for the 8th time on the 13th of April 2013. Over 120 players have registered for the 15-day tournament and a large number from around the United Arab Emirates and the gulf region too.
For the first time in history, the tournament is being officiated by the Emirates Tennis Federation (ETF), the official body for tennis in the United Arab Emirates. Players of the tournament are seizing this golden opportunity to accumulate valuable points and seal their ranking in the tennis scene.
Ahmed Abdrabuh, General Manager of the Doha Tennis Academy, who brought with him four players from Doha, shared that he was keen to enter the academy’s students who were already doing well in Doha because this was an ideal opportunity for them to play internationally and gain exposure to wider competition.
It was not only a chance for them to also gain some points towards their rankings but also serves as an adventure for them. One of the four students he has participating has already reigned champion in the tournament’s Girls' Under 10 category that took place on Saturday, 13 April.
Winners of the much-anticipated tournament walk away with prizes that include tennis gifts from HEAD as well as crystal trophies and cash.
The tournament, sponsored by Al Dharis, HEAD, Marcap Marine Capabilities, Leadright, Kudos, Abu Dhabi Mall, Evian and Makina, will continue at the Beach Rotana’s tennis courts with the grand finals to take place on the 27th of April 2013.
