15 Apr Tennis Ireland are pleased to announce the support of CPL for the Fed Cup team
Dublin, April 12th
Cpl, Ireland’s leading talent solutions provider, have taken their first steps into a partnership with Tennis Ireland by generously supporting Ireland’s 2019 Fed Cup campaign, driven by their desire to support Rachael Dillon and the rest of the Fed Cup team.
Rachael is Talent Analysis Lead with Cpl and is also one of Ireland’s leading tennis players. Rachael has represented Ireland in the Fed Cup on seven occasions and is a shining example of hard work, commitment and achievement both on and off court.
The professionalism shown by the Fed Cup team in terms of combining the professional level of practice hour commitments with full time employment or studies clearly illustrates their desire to succeed at the very highest levels.
The Fed Cup is the largest annual women’s international team event. The team are currently in Montenegro, preparing for a Group 3 Round Robin Campaign.
The draw takes place on Tuesday 16th April and Ireland will be in either Pool A with 2 other nations or Pool B with 3 other nations. Our potential opponents are: Norway, Egypt, Armenia, Morocco, Montenegro, Kenya.
Commenting on the Cpl support, Richard Fahey, CEO of Tennis Ireland said:
“We are delighted to attract sponsorship from a company such as Cpl, it makes a huge difference to the whole Fed Cup Team. Cpl have been hugely supportive of Rachael and this further demonstrates their commitment to her in achieving her personal and professional potential.”
Rachael Dillon, Cpl Talent Analysis Lead, and Tennis Ireland Fed Cup Player, added:
“I am so grateful for the support from Cpl as both an employer and sponsor to enable me to represent Ireland again in the Fed Cup this year. Their support of me and the fantastic young players in the squad clearly demonstrates their commitment to the development of women in business and in sport; and illustrates how a progressive company leads by example”.
