The best tennis players in the business world and the best businesspeople in the tennis world met June 17-18 at the Arka club’s tennis courts in Gdynia for the seventh Polish Employers’ Cup 2011 doubles tournament finals.

The finals were held after regional tournaments in Bydgoszcz, Gdynia, Lublin, Łęczna, Poznań and Warsaw. In total 44 men and 20 women qualified for the final showdown in Gdynia.

Among the male teams, the best duo was Cezary Goławski and Robert Szczukiewicz, who beat Jan Goryszewski and Krzysztof Pietras. Third place went to Marcin Jabłoński and Dariusz Krakowiak, who defeated Maciej So¶nicki and Jarosław Nowosad.

In the women’s matches, victory went to Beata Michowska and Grażyna Maciejewska, who outdistanced Joanna Bartkowska and Ewa Tempczyk. Third place went to Monika Żywiecka and Elżbieta Bauć.

The prizes for the winners were Laban silver fountain pens and Tag Heuer Avant-Garde Eyewear exclusive glasses. The bronze medalists received luxury desk sets provided by Bestar (for the men) and Nespresso coffee machines (for the women).

The honorary patron of the event was the Ministry of Sport and Tourism. The sponsors and partners were: PKP Cargo, PGNiG, Arcelor Mittal, Expedus, Lux Med and Medica Polska. Extra elegance was added by the Lexus cars in which the tournament participants traveled.

The finals were not just a sporting event but also a social occasion thanks to the two-day after-party that provided many opportunities for meetings with tennis enthusiasts from across the country.

A competition to pick the best-looking male and female players—Mr. Polish Employers’ Cup 2011 and Ms. Polish Employers’ Cup 2011—was held during the party.

A business card contest and a competition focusing on tennis and the Pracodawcy RP (Polish Employers) organization were also held.

The tournament is gaining popularity every year, as proved by the growing number of players wanting to play on the courts as well as the large group of sponsors and partners of the tournament and partners of the after-party (Lexus Gdynia, Tag Heuer Avant-Garde Eyewear, Bazarnik, Laban, Nespresso, Pilsner Urquell).
