Ladies Open receives massive backing

DAR ES SALAAM In what predicts an epic event, sponsors continued to turn up to back this year’s Tanzania Ladies Open golf tournament.

The prestigious annual ladies’ competition is scheduled to tee off from September 14th to 17th this year at Kili Golf course in Arusha.

Tanzania Ladies Golf Union (TLGU) President Queen Siraki said in Dar es Salaam yesterday that preparation for the 54-hole event is in top gear.

In her remarks, Siraki praised Sterling Surfactants Limited who is the main  sponsor of the tournament saying its support  will bring together top African women to battle for 54 holes.

She also extended appreciation to co-sponsors who include Daren Fabric Industries, Off the Beaten Path Safaris, Tanzania Breweries Ltd, Leopard Tours, Azam Media and Bansal Steel Rolling Mills.

“I would like to express my gratitude to all of our sponsors. They are incredibly valuable stakeholders to us, and without them, we would not be able to achieve what we have,” she said.

Adding, she said this is one of the major ladies’ events in Tanzania, East and Central Africa.

Seeing how prestigious the tournament stands, she appealed to sports stakeholders to support the union in organising a successful event.

“We still need support. The door is still open for those wishing to join,” Siraki said.

For the first time, professional golfers have been invited to compete for a cash prize award  as a way to acknowledge their contribution to the development of the game.

Siraki said players from various several African countries, including Kenya, Ghana, Uganda, and Zambia, have responded positively to their calls.

Hawa Wanyeche, the Secretary of the TLGU competition, emphasized the significance of the upcoming event.

“It will serve as the ultimate qualifying round for the national women’s team, who will represent their county at the East and Central Africa Challenge Trophy in Rwanda later this year.”

Wanyeche added that they also invited men to play in the subsidiary category.
