The Sardinian championships, under the aegis of Fit, were presented at the Olbia Costa Smeralda airport. Karasardegna, the main sponsor that gives the trophy its name, is in fact the brand that manages the shops of typical and excellent products within the Gallura airport. «The proposal was put forward by the Federation and we immediately accepted – comments Alessandro Masala, president of Tc Terranova -. It is in fact a very important event for Sardinia. Our club is particularly presented to a tournament that takes place in a winter month because we can have indoor courts ». The role played by the Mater Olbia hospital, partner of the initiative, which will guarantee its assistance during the tournament, will also be fundamental. «This appointment shows that Tc Terranova is growing more and more – says Lucio Murru, commercial director of Geasar, the company that manages the Costa Smeralda airport -. The Olbiese club boasts a great youth activity. It is above all for this reason that Karasardegna has decided to sponsor the event ». The other members of the Tc Terranova board also participated in the presentation of the absolute Sardinian Championships: the vice-president Valentino Coizza, the club development manager Sergio Solinas, the treasurer Renzo Mancini and the head of social activities Fabio Satta.
