MUNICH, October 20, 2015
Within the scope of this year’s BMW Open by FWU AG several German celebrities as well as (former) tennis professionals were invited to take part in a charity doubles tournament at the venue of the MTTC Iphitos last Saturday. Alexander Waske and Daniel de Boer defeated Emilio Benfele-Alvarez and Pascal Beij in the final of the “Golden Racket Charity”.
The following evening gala took place in the hotel “Vier Jahreszeiten” and was attended by people from sports, economy, film and policy. Sabine Lisicki and Oliver Pocher, as well as former German tennis pros Rainer Schüttler, Alexander Waske and Bernd Karbacker were among the guests. BMW Open tournament director Patrik Kühnen also attended the event. A charity tombola generated a revenue of € 25,000, which will be donated to the Bavarian Sports Foundation.
In the meantime, ticket sales for next year’s edition of the BMW Open, taking place from 23 April to 1 May 2016, have already started. Tickets from € 10 can be bought from the ATP 250 event’s official homepage www.bmwopen.de.
