Royal Cliff Hotels Group and AssetWise Join Forces to Drive Thailand to Become A Leading Sports Destination
Pattaya, 2 June 2023 – The partnership between Royal Cliff Hotels Group and AssetWise was forged through their aligned values in making Thailand a leading sports destination especially for Tennis. The first event that the two companies worked together on was organizing the successful ITF Masters Tennis Championship held in November. The tournament attracted around 200 players from across the globe with the oldest player being over 80 years old. From this event and with Royal Cliff’s expertise in organizing multiple sports activities came the idea of creating 2 international Tennis events. The first event will be the first time that the 2 organizations have done which is the Junior Tennis Tournament. The second event will be the repeat of the ITF Masters which Royal Cliff has been granted the highest grade in Asia by International Tennis Federation. The two events will be taking place at the resort’s Fitz Club, luxury fitness centre, on 3 – 4 June and 18 – 24 November 2023 respectively.
The sport projects is supported by a number of governmental agencies and officers who appreciate the goals and contribution to the country. A press conference to discuss and explain more about the sports initiative was held at Fitz Club.
