Now, you may be wondering, what is touchtennis? Touchtennis is a modified version of tennis played on a compact court with foam balls and shorter rackets. The game was created by Rashid Ahmad as a means of entertaining his young daughter and has since been developed to include a tour, complete with rankings, four major grand slams as well as Masters Events and other smaller tournaments. It doesn’t matter whether you’re young or old, male or female; the key to the game’s addictiveness is the enjoyment that comes from repeatedly and intelligently outwitting opponents.
Named the 2017 Unily Masters, the tournament attracted a global audience as well as coverage on Sky Sports, Facebook and Periscope which ensured great exposure for Brightstarr and Unily.
Rashid Ahmad on Brightstarr as a sponsor – “Brightstarr has been supporting the growth of touchtennis since 2007 when the first pro event was played. As a grass roots initiative, Brightstarr - with its commitment to social responsibility - has helped this young sport grow from 8 players to over 10,000 and is now title sponsor for major events such as the Sky Sports featured Unily Masters in Portsmouth earlier in February.”
