Rafael Nadal, Ana Ivanovic, Stefan Edberg, Martina Navratilova and Daniela Hantuchova will be joined by leading, current and past, ATP/WTA players along with Sir Richard Branson in the 2nd annual Necker Cup Pro-am on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands.
The event is organized by Premier Tennis Travel, a leader in luxury tennis travel and event management.
Sir Richard Branson is excited to host the event again. “Last year’s first ever Necker Cup was a huge success & incredible fun for everyone involved. It’s an honour to have Necker Island host this unique tennis experience again this year and I’m very much looking forward to seeing everybody again and some new faces too.”
Amateurs can book a 4 night/5 day all-inclusive team package to the world’s most exclusive tennis Pro-Am by calling (001) 800.376.0975 or clicking here.
Amateurs can also win a trip to compete in the Necker Cup Pro-Am by participating in the Corporate Challenge to be held October 4-6th, 2013 at The New York Athletic Club in New York City.
Beside world class tennis, Necker Cup Pro-Am guests will enjoy cocktail and dinner parties and also get the chance to meet with top tennis stars and Sir Richard Branson. The final day concludes with a charity exhibition match, dinner, auction and “End of the World” party in the main room of Necker Island’s Great House. 2013 Necker Cup guests will be some of the first to ever see Necker Island’s highly anticipated, newly rebuilt, Great House.
Last year’s Necker Cup raised over $1,000,000 for worthy causes. Auction bidders can win unique, once in a lifetime experiences such as: one on one hitting sessions with some of tennis’ best pros, luxurious trips and merchandise, premier tickets to sporting events, signed memorabilia and much more. One hundred percent of all donations from the auction will directly benefit the local BVI community, Virgin Unite, the National Tennis Foundation, Rafa Nadal Foundation and other ATP and WTA player charities.
Sir Richard Branson, in conjunction with Premier Tennis Travel, will host a five-day world-class Pro-Am tennis event on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands November 12-16. Sir Richard will join 15 current and former ATP and WTA legends to pair up with 16 amateur teams of all levels. A handicapped scoring format will be used making it competitive tennis for all tennis levels. Teams consist of one pro and up to two amateurs. Teams compete to win their bracket and earn a chance to play in the Necker Cup Final. As well as the tennis, participants can engage in typical Necker Island activities including paddle boarding, Pilates, sailing, kite boarding, wake boarding, snorkeling, massage therapy, beach tennis, parties and more. On the final night, the “End of the World” party will take place and will include an exhibition, a charity dinner and an auction. A portion of event profits and 100 percent of all auction proceeds will go to Virgin Unite, the National Tennis Foundation, and other leading ATP and WTA player charities.
