The much anticipated Champagne Bollinger National Trade Tennis Tournament finals was held in Christchurch this year at Elmwood Tennis Club on Tuesday 8th March. The Auckland regional winners, Waiheke Wine Centre and Wellington regional winners, Ministry of Food were flown down to Christchurch to compete against our South Island customers and stayed overnight at Hotel Montreal.
Grant Chapman from Ministry of Food sent this lovely note “I just wanted to send a huge thank you for the fun time we he had in Christchurch. Except for the fact that we got ousted in the Semi’s we had an awesome time. The Champagne of course was the best but the food, staff and particularly the accommodations were outstanding. It was great to mix with others in the industry and the tennis was great too.”
Jason Schwarz from Waiheke Wine Centre “I wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to you two and Negociants for our recent trip away. My brother and I had a wonderful time and were thrilled to bring home the National trophy. Negociants are always so generous. The flights, the transfers and wonderful hotel that you put us up in were all very much appreciated. Thanks very much, you guys rock.”
The Champagne Bollinger Trade Tennis Tournaments are open to any of our customers who list and are good supporters of Champagne Bollinger. The finals will be held in Auckland next year - I hope to see you there!
