Tennis legend Boris Becker is hosting a special Battle of Malta charity event on Friday to raise funds for Pink October Malta.
Eight lucky players will be able to join Boris for the special Sit n’ Go which is taking place in the Eden Arena and will be live streamed on the Battle of Malta website as well as social media platforms.
Players can buy their €10 entries for the draw at a dedicated desk in the Eden Arena from midday Thursday – with the draw taking place at 5:30pm on Friday. A free seat for next year’s Battle of Malta goes to the winner – along with exclusive bragging rights.
Players are invited to buy as many tickets as they like in their bid to join Boris in the event. The Sit n’ Go starts at 6pm in the Eden Arena at the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre.
Becker, an avid poker player and former world tennis #1, has won singles titles in 14 different countries and in 2003 was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. He first turned pro in 1984 and, at the age of 17, was the youngest ever male Grand Slam singles champion. Off the court, Becker is no slouch at the poker table and has notched up more than $110,000 in live tournament cashes over the last ten years.
Pink October Malta, a Marigold Foundation initiative, aims to spread awareness about breast cancer to a wide audience and encourage women to undergo regular check-ups.
