Eagle Aromatic Schnapps, a brand from the stable of the Intercontinental Distillers Limited (makers of Chelsea Dry Gin, Squadron Dark Rum, Veleta Fruit Drink, etc ) recently partnered with the Warri Tennis Club to host the 2nd Grand Patron Lawn Tennis Tournament in honour of the Olu of Warri, His Majesty Ogiame Atuwatse.
The event, which was held to celebrate the Olu of Warri’s 26th Coronation Anniversary, hosted various clubs within Delta State & its environs including Ughelli Club, Shell Club, NNPC Club, and Asaba Club, all participating in the American Tennis Tournament Format.
The highlight of the day was the exhibition match between the Governor’s Team represented by Hon Amaju Pinnick (Sports Commissioner) and Hon Patrick Ferife (Commissioner for Land Planning) and Team Warri Club.
The Brand Manager of Eagle Aromatic Schnapps, Mr Kingsley Anuebunwa, said the partnership between the brand and the tournament for the past 2yrs is a testament to the fact that although Eagle Schnapps is committed to promoting Tradition, it is also synergizing between the old & the new. He further added that the brand is beginning to wear a more youthful look hence its involvement in sports.
Visitors and members alike were thrilled, and expressed their delight with the various cocktail mixes sampled at the event. The brand also gave out some gifts to some members of the club.
The President of the Club, in his address thanked Eagle Aromatic Schnapps and looked forward to a long lasting and even more cordial relationship with Intercontinental Distillers Limited Brands in the promotion of tradition and sports.
The winner of the star prize Mr Kelvin Ojoevwe went home with a deep freezer among other exciting prizes.
