HALLE/WESTFALEN, January 17, 2020
The ATP 500 grass-court event in Halle has extended its main sponsor contract with German company NOVENTI for another year. The tournament will still be named NOVENTI Open and the agreement will run until the end of 2022.
NOVENTI, based in Munich, combines a large number of separate individual companies as a holding company. These companies have an important thing in common: they are all active in the healthcare market. The core target groups are pharmacies, other service providers, care services, and physicians.
The sponsorship contract started in 2019 for three years until 2021. Earlier last year, fashion manufacturer and retailer Gerry Weber, based in Westfalia and founder of the tournament, filed for insolvency under its own management. The tournament is organized by the OWL Sport & Event GmbH & Co. OHG, formerly known as Gerry Weber Management & Event. Ralf Weber remains tournament director. The 2020 edition will be held at the OWL Arena from June 15 to 21.
