Ladies European Tour starts from Cape Town

The 2021 Ladies European Tour (LET) season kicks off with the South African Women’s Open, scheduled in Cape Town from May 13-16. On the field there will also be Lucrezia Colombotto Rosso, the only blue in the race in an event that precedes the 25th edition of the Ladies Italian Open (May 28-30 at the Margara Golf Club in Fubine Monferrato, in Piedmont).

An immediately important chance for Colombotto Rosso, a 25-year-old born in Turin who, in 2020, also obtained two Top 10 on the main continental circuit and now aims to start strong to get closer to qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Games. In the United States, on the Symetra Tour (second American women’s circuit) in Davidson (North Carolina), the Tuscan Roberta Liti will instead be among the protagonists of the Symetra Classic (May 14-16), a tournament closed in 2020 in 5th place from Liti.

The European Tour has today announced a multi-year partnership with Zoom Video Communications, Inc.

As the European Tour’s Official Unified Communications Partner, Zoom will provide comprehensive communications services including virtual and collaborative experiences for media, commercial partners, hospitality guests and the Tour’s global fanbase, through exclusive live-sport experiences.

Zoom will deliver virtual press conferences and facilitate key stakeholder activities at tournaments via the new Zoom Media Centre launched at this week’s Betfred British Masters hosted by Danny Willett at The Belfry, whilst also providing its services to the European Challenge Tour and Legends Tour.

In doing so, Zoom will assist the European Tour to achieve its sustainability goals moving forward, specifically contributing to its remote operations including tournament planning, which will reduce its carbon emissions by using its virtual communications services and enhanced collaboration services in the future.

Guests of Zoom and the European Tour will also be offered the chance to join the Virtual Clubhouse through Zoom at select events to experience a range of innovative spectator engagements.
