ABU DHABI: The Mubadala World Tennis Championship returns to Abu Dhabi’s International Tennis Centre in Zayed Sports City on Dec. 16-18, organizers Flash Entertainment have announced.
Six of the world’s top male tennis players, and two leading female players, are lined up to compete.
The 13th edition of the championship will welcome spectators back with a reduced capacity in line with the UAE government’s regulations.
The tournament is now also accessible to international visitors after Abu Dhabi’s announcement to lift quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated travelers from all countries.
“Since its inception, the Mubadala World Tennis Championship has proven to be incredibly popular with people from Abu Dhabi and around the world, so to be able to announce its return, with fans in attendance, is a very special moment for us,” said John Lickrish, CEO of Flash Entertainment.
“We challenge ourselves with each edition to provide an unmissable experience for all our audiences, from tennis fans and live-event loyalists to families and international visitors. The 13th edition is shaping up to be one of the best to date, with the opportunity for everybody to reconnect, in person, in a safe environment. We look forward to announcing another world-class line-up and welcome the world’s best tennis players back to Abu Dhabi,” he added.
“The health and wellbeing of fans, players and officials is our priority, and we are working closely with government entities, key championship partners and stakeholders to ensure a safe and successful event for all.”
Homaid Abdulla Al-Shimmari, deputy group CEO and chief corporate and human capital officer at Mubadala, said: “We are proud to continue our support for the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, one of the most highly anticipated sports events in Abu Dhabi. This world-class tournament is an unmissable sporting and social event for the people of the UAE that also helps to promote an active lifestyle in line with our commitment to positively impact the communities in which we operate.”
