Seven of the world’s most successful tennis legends are heading to Cheshire to help stage the region’s best summer garden party.
Clique Events is promising three days of tennis, networking and a ‘garden party’ that will be bigger than ever for this year’s Boodles Tennis at the Mere event. And they’ve certainly pulled out all the stops to make sure their cast of tennis legends lives up to the bill. The list of those taking part at this year’s event – from June 19 – 21 – reads like a Who’s Who of tennis stars from down the years. Confirmed players are Mikael Pernfors, Xavier Malisse, Barbara Schett, Asa Svensson, Richard Krajicek, Thomas Enqvist and Younes El Aynaoui. Title sponsor Boodles will be returning to the home of their major summer get-together once again – more than a decade after the inaugural event – for three days of spectacular tennis.
The 2019 event will be the seventh consecutive year Boodles Tennis has been held at The Mere and, this year the event will be raising cash for the Matt Haycox Foundation charity – a children’s charity which aims to provide financial support to the lives of seriously and terminally ill children and their families.
Clique Events owner, Matt Haycox, said: “”We are really excited about this year’s Boodles Tennis at the Mere. We’ve some fantastic names taking part, a ‘who’s who’ list of sponsors and we’re expecting to beat the record attendances of last year when we launch next summer. There’s so much to look forward to this year. Not the least of which is the return of Ladies Day, which was such a hit with the players, sponsors and fans over the last two years.”
