South Asia’s only ATP 250 is set to kick off on December 31, 2022, in Pune. The company has announced that its iconic flagship SUV, the all-new Tata Safari, will be the Official Partner for Tata Open Maharashtra.

The tournament has brought some of world’s biggest stars such as Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, Carlos Moya to India in the past. This year 2014 US Open champion Marin ?ili? will headline the highly competitive field, which is featuring 17 top-100 players. Driven by the core principles of “Sportification of India”, Tata Motors’ association with one of India’s oldest sporting events will continue to play a crucial role in promoting the sport.

Sanjay Khandare, Treasurer of Tata Open Maharashtra, who is also an IAS officer, commented,

“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with one of India’s most trusted brands, Tata Motors for the fifth year in a row now. This adds to the credibility, trust and partnership that we share with them as we celebrate the milestone fifth year of the tournament in Pune.

Rajan Amba, VP, Sales, Marketing and Customer Service, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd, added:

We are delighted to announce our continued association with the Tata Open Maharashtra. For this event, we have chosen to showcase our premium flagship SUV, Safari. The Safari brand has always exposed its ‘Reclaim Your Life’ philosophy and what better a way to do so, than Sports. The power and performance of the Safari is synonymous with that of a highly trained tennis player and it lends itself aptly to this wonderful long serving association.

Tata Motors has a rich history of association with various sports events in India. The company has been at the forefront of India’s mobility revolution for more than 75 years and continues to offer an extensive range of smart, sustainable and integrated mobility solutions, a diverse portfolio that includes cars, sports utility vehicles, trucks, buses and defence vehicles.

Tata Open Maharashtra, owned by IMG and managed by RISE Worldwide, will be conducted at the Balewadi Stadium by the Maharashtra State Lawn Tennis Association (MSLTA) in association with the Government of Maharashtra.

The partnership, which began after the prestigious tournament shifted to Pune from Chennai in 2018, has grown immensely ever since.
