Become a Corporate Sponsor

Want to be a sponsor?

We need more support to be able to provide more support.  We are entertaining corporate and individual support for each tournament, or the entire series. We know that women can support women and enjoy watching the fruits of their investment. More to follow here shortly, but if you would like to support us, please get in touch.
