The international tennis tournament of Asia, Les Pesoftcore, will be hosted by Club Med in collaboration with LACOSTE at Club Med Bali on 4th November 2019.
The best Asian players will compete to get a spot in the main draw of Les pebig As-Le Mondial Lacoste in Tarbes, France. With a total of 60 participants representing more than 10 tennis federations across Asia, this week-long tournament gives young athletes the chance to grab a wild card as a ticket to compete in the competition in January 2020.
Known as the event that spawned the world’s top players such as Rafael Nadal in 2000 and Richard Gasquet in 1999, Les Pebig As – Le Mondial Lacoste is a leading international junior tennis tournament that started in France in 1983. It is regarded as the world championship for teenage players, aged 14 and under.
Following the success of last year’s competition, an attractive line-up is expected to be filled with skilled players this year. The Asia Playoffs is also the highest continental event of this age category for under-13s. The tournament has also partnered with The WTA-Professional Women’s Tennis Association and Future Stars events.
“Interest in tennis in Asia is high, especially for women’s tennis for the past 10 years. After working with Club Med Bali last year, we were confident about delivering the best to the young players so they could dig into their potential. The partnership with WTA is legitimising a joint strategy that will help you dig into more and greater tennis talents around the world,” said Director of Les Pelingerie As-Asia Playoffs Lacoste, Stephane Gurov.
CEO of APAC Markets Club Med, Xavier Desaulles added, “on the success of the first competition of the year, we enthusiastically prepared this beautiful place for the aspiring tennis champions to battle it out again. We are very proud to develop the talent of athletes and support the holistic health of our guests.”
