Each draw will take place on the hour at 12noon, 1pm and 2pm and the
former world No.1 will pick out the lucky winners.
Nicol said: “It is wonderful to see that all the prime back-wall seats
have sold out so quickly for the event. It proves that we have an
irresistible combination of the world’s leading players performing on
the glass court inside such a fabulous venue as the East Wintergarden.
“This is the fifth year of the tournament and it is tremendously
encouraging to see such a fantastic response from spectators who are
drawn to the skills and incredible athleticism of the world’s best
players. Side-wall tickets are still available but the back-wall seats
were snapped up very quickly.”
Nicol, who combines event management with coaching and developing a new
fitness business, is glad he no longer has to put his body through the
mill in such a brutal sport. Nicol, who was the world No.1 for more than
five years, added: “I enjoy watching the top guys putting themselves
through some absolutely brutal matches and have absolutely no desire to
get back on court!”
