Michael Stich Charms Children and their Parents at “Little Wimbledon” Tournament
There were smiling faces everywhere at the tenth anniversary edition of the “Little Wimbledon” tournament organized by Tennis Club TC 1899 Blau-Weiss Berlin on Sunday, 14 June. Sponsored by Skjerven Group and its subsidiary Part-B Immobilien, this year’s event featured a very special highlight: Wimbledon champion and former World No. 2 Michael Stich played warm-up matches against the young participants, shared invaluable advice during training sessions and presented the winners’ trophies at the prize-giving ceremony. “The tournament was a huge success all around and the children weren’t the only ones who were happy to have Michael Stich there,” said Einar Skjerven, CEO of Skjerven Group. “Many parents, too, were obviously overjoyed to be able to play against a professional athlete.”
The club inaugurated the lawn tennis tournament a decade ago to provide an opportunity for its younger members to compete against each other and show off their skills. “This event has already become a fixture in the young players’ diaries,” Skjerven added. “That’s one reason we are so delighted that the anniversary edition was such a success. Meeting Michael Stich has left a huge impression on the next generation of tennis stars and they will treasure this experience for a long time to come.”
