International Premier Tennis League franchise the Singapore Slammers has named property developer OUE as its new title sponsor.
The company, which is part of the franchise’s owner UD Group, has signed a three-year deal with the team, which will now be officially named the OUE Singapore Slammers.
Slammers chairman Prateek Gupta said: “As a Singapore-owned team, having another prominent local company getting behind this venture shows the enthusiasm for top-level sport here and also our wider goal of developing tennis from the grassroots through our Junior Slammers programme, through to the faces of our team who will lead by example to inspire the next generation here.”
Singapore will host the final leg of the second annual IPTL from December 18-20. The five-team tournament is competed for by tennis players past and present.
The Slammers team includes world No.1 Novak Djokovic (pictured) and former French Open champion Carlos Moya.
