MUMBAI: The 2015 edition of the Aircel Chennai Open will mark two decades since the very first game of India’s premier and South Asia’s only ATP world tour stop was played. To commemorate the tournament’s fantastic achievements, students from 12 schools and 14 colleges got an opportunity to celebrate their very own World Tour event and catch a glimpse of the 2015 Aircel Trophy during a tour spanning over two weeks in Chennai.

The 20th year celebrations of India’s only ATP World Tour stop include a host of exciting activities sure to thrill tennis fans who are waiting to enjoy scintillating tennis action at Chennai’s SDAT Tennis Stadium between 5-11 January. 



Initiatives include a renovated SDAT Stadium, the launch of a special logo created to mark the occasion, free passes to school students from Government schools to watch matches for the first four days, and a host of ongoing activities across India.



The exclusive trophy tour visited Chennai’s most prominent landmarks including 12 schools, 14 colleges, six IT parks, five public parks and locations and three tennis academies over a course of two weeks. 



Some of the iconic locations covered during the ACO trophy tour were Loyola College, MOP College for Women, Ethiraj College, Ascendas IT Park, YMCA Nandanam, Padma Sarangani School, EGA Theatre, Marina Beach, TIDEL Park and CTS (Cognizant).



This ACO trophy is an amalgamation of classic and contemporary stylizations. Much like the sport it represents, with traditional values in an ever changing modern world. The bands of intricate hand detailed motifs, the sweeping elegant contours and the touch of rich 24k gold gilt are all symbolic of excellence. This trophy is designed, handcrafted and hallmarked for Aircel exclusively by Frazer and Haws.



While fans young and old grabbed the fantastic chance to witness the premier ATP tennis symbol in their own neighborhood and take pictures with it, the tour also offered people a chance to participate in exciting quiz sessions and an Aircel fastest serve challenge to win loads of prizes that included about 400 tickets and 750 special tennis balls.



The Aircel fastest serve challenge was organised at Phoenix Market City, Chennai on 20, 21, 27 and 28 December. In fastest serve challenge people could try swinging the racket to clock ball speeds touching 80 kmph, and win tickets. 



Youngsters thronged the serving booth in a desperate attempt to get one of three chances right to clinch the announced prize. The tennis fans and enthusiasts will also get the opportunity to participate in the Aircel fastest serve challenge at the stadium for all four days.



The title sponsor for the tournament is Aircel and the event is supported by a consortium of sponsors in the Platinum category, headed by the Government of Tamil Nadu.
