12.05am 21st January 2002 - Sponsorship

The organisers of the Evian Masters have announced a three-year partnership with UBS Private Banking into the International Evian Masters sponsor’s club.

UBS, one of the world leaders in banking, will join Evian, Lacoste and Rolex as primary sponsors for the tournament, held this year from 12th to 15th June at Evian Haute-Savoie on the French shore of Lake Geneva.

The Evian Masters, known as the ‘Masters’ of women’s golf, offers a prize fund of $US 2.1 million this year. The finest women golfers in the World are expected to attend the event, including world number one Annika Sorenstam from Sweden, England’s Laura Davies and defending champion Rachel Teske from Australia, who beat Sweden’s Maria Hjorth after a tense battle.

Next year the Evian Masters is due to change its dates from its normal slot in June to 23rd to 26th July, the week before the Weetabix Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham and St Annes on the Lancashire coastline.
