WTA Celebrating Our Champions Dinner

Posted 1st Jul


On the evening of Friday 28th June we met some of the world’s greatest tennis players, past and present, at an amazing ‘Celebrating our 
Champions’. event, sponsored by Dubai Duty Free. Hosted by our World Governing Body, the WTA. 

The event took place at the Jumeirah Carlton Ballroom in Belgravia, London, and he highlight of the evening was an on stage discussion between tennis legends Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert who chatted fondly about the rivalry and then friendship formed after competing against each other, a staggering 80 times.  

Many other tennis stars from past and present , and other influential women were also at this prestigious event and it was a pleasure to meet each and every one of them.
For The Elena Baltacha Foundation it offered an invaluable opportunity to discuss our ‘Hybrid Sport to Business’ concept with Dubai Duty Free Executive Vice President Salam Jahlak, and CEO. Ramesh Gidambi.
