The first Peugeot Philippines Tennis Open (PPTO) will unfold on October 12 according to Peugeot Philippines President Glen Dasig.
“We are excited to watch Filipino tennis players in action and see who will emerge as the first batch of champions,” said Dasig during a press conference on Wednesday at the Valle Verde Country Club in Pasig City. Present at the press launch are top seeded players Patrick John Tierro and Marian Jade Capadocia.
One of the oldest automotive brand that originated in Europe, Peugeot has been a driving force behind the prestigious Roland-Garros, also known as The French Open.
“Peugeot and tennis share a deep relationship, as proven by our sponsorship of the Roland-Garros for more than 30 years.”
“We at Peugeot would like to ignite that same love for the game in the Philippines by fueling local players’ passion for tennis,” added Dasig.
PPTO is a nationwide tournament happening in several cities among them Cagayan de Oro (October 12 to 18), Nueva Ecija (November 2 to 8), Bacolod (November 23 to 29), Cebu (January 9 to 15, 2016) and National Capital Region (February 1 to 7).
