Highland Spring, the UK’s No 1 bottled water brand, has revealed its new sponsorship of Brodies Champions of Tennis, which is to be held in Edinburgh from 20 – 23 June.
Building on its already strong links with tennis, Highland Spring is the official bottled water supplier keeping the Champions hydrated throughout. The first ATP competition to be held in Scotland and the biggest tennis event to take place in Edinburgh for many years, the tournament will see old rivals Tim Henman and Goran Ivanisevic return to the court alongside John McEnroe and six other tennis greats.
Claire Wilson, marketing manager at Highland Spring, said: “Brodies Champions of Tennis is sure to be one of the most exciting and inspiring tennis events to be held in Scotland. It’s a fantastic opportunity to see these players in action, and, as a champion of healthy hydration and with strong links to tennis, the tournament is the perfect partner for Highland Spring.”
Tournament Director, Viki Mendelssohn, said: “The plans for our event are coming along well and I’m delighted to be able to welcome Highland Spring as our Official Bottled Water. Highland Spring is synonymous with top class tennis and a very strong Scottish brand, making it a perfect fit for this inaugural event.”
Held in Raeburn Palace, home of Edinburgh Academicals, Brodies Champions of Tennis marks the first time a rugby club will host an ATP event. The Tour reunites tennis champions in a four day event.
To qualify for the ATP Champions Tour each player has either been a World No 1, a member of a winning Davis Cup team or a Grand Slam finalist, or is a wildcard choice. Old rivalries and reputation ensure an incredibly high standard of competition, guaranteeing some edge-of-your-seat matches.
