Today was presented at the CAR the IV Tournament Tennis Inter-Company, organized by the Fundació IT (Tennis Investigation) and the Center, and aimed to companies from the region, which can register teams up to 6 players.
Joan Fontserè, director of CAR, Fèlix Riba, the tournament director (Fundació IT), Xavier Diego, CEO of Sisquella (main sponsor) and Xavier Tizon, sports council of Sant Cugat have taken part in the presentation.
By now, there are seven teams registered, and other companies have already expressed interest and they are already setting up their teams. The data limit for registration ends on 2th November at 10h. Last years, 15 and 18 couples had been involved in the tournament.
This year there is a change in the organization, which in previous editions had been in charge of the company FIT Sport and this year has changed to Fundació IT.
Joan Fontserè said that this tournament "reaffirms the agreement between CAR Sant Cugat and the City Council, which will be reflected soon in an collaboration agreement".
The director, Fèlix Riba and Xavier Tizón have appreciate the Sisquella compromise, who has supported the tournament since the first edition, and they wanted to highlight the value of his support during the difficult economical time that we are living nowadays.
Xavier Tizón, the sports council, has thanked the organizers and the sponsors, and he has said "again, thanks to CAR Sant Cugat, we are a focal point in the region".
Xavier Diego, Sisquella Group, has reaffirmed the commitment of his company at events like this where "we can combine business and culture, because the sport is culture".
The tournament will take place in the Hall Tennis at the CAR. The matches (doubles) will be held from 7th November to 1st December, during the evenings from Monday to Thursday. The closing refreshment will be on 1st December in the Carpa de Sant Cugat.
The tournament is a great opportunity for companies to establish relationship between them in a relaxed atmosphere. It also allows people who are outside the sport environment to know the CAR, the sports facilities, services and work performed.
