SINGAPORE - Those planning to catch the world's top female tennis stars in action at the Singapore Indoor Stadium this October, and want a VIP experience on top of that, can now have just that.
The World Sport Group (WSG), the promoter of the upcoming BNP Paribas Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Finals, is launching a new premium hospitality programme for tennis fans here today, The Business Times has learnt.
The Racquet Club, as the programme is called, is also the name of a double-storey, glass-fronted pavilion to be built just a stone's throw from the Indoor Stadium.
The bespoke luxury facility will have a private drop-off lobby that welcomes arriving clients, who will enjoy international cuisine and a free flow of champagne, wine and beer.
Besides getting to mingle with the players in the 3,000 square metre pavilion, club members will have access to the reserved seats on the baseline of Centre Court at the Indoor Stadium to watch the matches.
During the games, which will take place over 11 sessions from Oct 20 to 26, they will have exclusive access to the open bar at the nearby Aces Lounge.
The cost of such an experience starts at $795 per person for each of the first four sessions. There is also an option to buy the entire "championship" package - all 11 sessions, including the grand final, for $6,950.
Those with deeper pockets can opt to get 50 of these championship packages. This comes with a private suite at the Racquet Club, with the opportunity to brand the space.
Fans who book a set of 10 packages will get a dedicated table at the pavilion with the option to include branded table signage.
A five-week-long early-bird period that starts on Monday and lasts until the end of June offers fans a 7 per cent discount on all the hospitality packages, said the Singapore-based WSG.
