PLAYER LOCKER CHARITY AUCTION SET TO LAUNCH AT BARCLAYS ATP WORLD TOUR FINALS
Players competing at this year’s Barclays ATP World Tour Finals are coming together to support charity in a unique worldwide player locker auction.
As the season-ending tournament, featuring the world’s top eight singles players and doubles teams, gets underway at The O2 in London this Sunday, an online charity auction is being launched which will see fans bidding for the contents of their favourite player’s locker. The lockers will be personally stocked by each of the top eight singles players.
All money raised is being split between each respective player’s charity of choice, with 50% of all the proceeds going to the tournament’s charity partner Save the Children.
In celebration of Tomas Berdych's participation at the 2011 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, the ATP has released his personal tennis items within this special locker. Tomas Berdych has qualified for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals for a second consecutive year. The talented Czech reached the Wimbledon final in 2010 and has captured six career ATP World Tour titles.
Funds raised from Tomas' locker will be split between Czech charity, Paraple Centrum and Save the Children, the official charity of the 2011 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.
