TAG Heuer built Singapore’s first ever floating tennis platform ahead of the WTA Finals in Singapore. Stretching out 35 by 17 metres across the water at Clifford Pier, and weighing up to 10 cars, the floating court was unveiled in an evening of sporting glamour and a key event on the fringe of the tournament.
The floating court took ten days to build and install, and was the stage for an exhibition game between Maria and Micahel Chang.
In addition, the event saw eight-year-old Joshua Wong’s wish come true. The young tennis fan suffers from non-Hodgkin lymphoma and TAG Heuer has partnered Make-A-Wish Foundation to realise Joshua’s wish to meet a real-life sports star. He presented the TAG Heuer limited edition SG50 Aquaracer to Maria on court in the presence of hundreds of guests.
The party continued indoors with press conferences with Maria and Chang, as well as a TAG Heuer showcase, live music and other activities.
