Sport2Life was main partner of The LiveScore Cup as Elite Women’s Tennis Returns to the Court
‘The LiveScore Cup’ organized by Sport2Life, Saran Media & PR Stars took place from 3-6 June in Prague
‘The LiveScore Cup’ took place in Prague with WTA World Number 3 Karolina Pliskova headlining a number of European stars as live women’s tennis returns. Sport2Life, a foundation to promote youth sports, is the main partner, and the tournament is sanctioned by the Czech Tennis Federation. It comes as a significant boost to tennis fans across the world who have been starved of live tennis action, since the elite season was put on hold by the COVID-19 outbreak in mid-March.
Karolina Pliskova, WTA World Number 3, said;
“I am really looking forward to the start of the LiveScore Cup, and the chance to once again compete in my country alongside some of the best players in Europe. After our enforced season break, it’s brilliant that we will have this chance to again showcase women’s tennis to fans around the world, especially on clay at a time when the French Open would have normally been taking place.
Whilst for now we must wait for fans to return to the courtside, I and all the players are looking forward to putting on a show for all the fans following the action on TV. It is especially meaningful to announce this tournament on international children’s day in partnership with event partner Sport2Life.”
Staged on clay-courts and held at The Stvanice Stadium in Prague from Wednesday 3rd until Saturday 6th June, The LiveScore Cup will follow a special round-robin format featuring former World Number 1 Pliskova alongside five leading European players, including 2019 Roland Garros Finalist and current World Number 18 Marketa Vondrousova.
Michael Saran, Founder of Sport2Life Foundation said;
“Sport2Life is proud to be the main partner of this important event which is featuring the world’s best tennis players including our Sport2Life ambassadors Karolina and Kristyna. Not only will we have an opportunity to watch great tennis but this important event will serve as an inspiration for us all to be more active and healthy in these difficult times.”
