February 03 2011

From 24 to 28 November, the eight edition of the Camozzi Doubles Masters..

From 24 to 28 November, the eighth edition of the Camozzi Doubles Masters was held at the Vavassori Tennis Academy (Palazzolo S/O), one of the most prestigious wheelchair tennis competitions, with participation of the best teams coming from all over the world.

The Camozzi Doubles Masters were held in Italy for its eighth occasion, after previously always being held in the country that gave rise to its manifestation: The Netherlands.
The importance of  this sports manifestation, born in 2000, has grown from year to year and reached a very high level of athletic display.

The Vavassori Tennis team, together with the Camozzi Group, have been involved in organizing sport initiatives of a considerable social level for  quite some time, and they have deserved the confidence of the ITF Wheelchair. In fact, the commitment and dedication shown for several years has been transformed into the organization of the ‘Invacare World Team Cup by Camozzi’ in 2002 and in the ‘Camozzi Doubles Masters’ since 2003. From the beginning, Tennis Events Vavassori and the Camozzi Group believed in and sustained with enthusiasm these appointments that are so important for the world of sports, with the combined hope of succeeding in transmitting their values. Occasions of this kind are rare and precious. In addition to offering a fascinating athletic performance, they also represent a perfect opportunity to support the significant integration of differently abled persons into the public opinion.

The event was also enriched by the presence of  the two of Italy’s premier tennis players, Seppi and Fognini, who played against each other and then played a doubles match, together with two wheelchair tennis players. The performance was much appreciated and offered additional entertainment to the viewing public. It was a memorable and enjoyable week for all players and their trainers, as well as for the public.
