Emirates Palace to bring tennis giants to Abu Dhabi
Tennis at The Palace
On Wednesday, Abu Dhabi's most luxurious hotel was host to the announcement of Tennis at The Palace, where former Wimbledon champions Richard Krajicek and Pat Cash, five time winner on the ATP Tour Younes El Aynaoui and Mansour Bahrami, the trick shot specialist, were present to announce the unique sporting event.
According to the organisers Tennis at The Palace – which is next scheduled for March 12-14 next year – will bring "top tennis action in a traditional English garden party atmosphere to Abu Dhabi."
Vicky Collins, who is the official tournament director said, "I thought I had a choice of where to put those events, but when I landed in Abu Dhabi I realised I had no choice. It had to be here, had to be at the Emirates Palace. Tennis is a great British tradition, but I'm excited to see where tennis can go in Abu Dhabi."
