Dubrovnik could soon have another major event, this time a sporting event, held in the city. The Mayor of Dubrovnik, Andro Vlahusic, today met with former tennis player and founder and director of the specialised sports management company Croatia Top Spin, Branko Horvat. The pair discussed the possibility of organising, in conjunction with the Dubrovnik Tennis Club, an international tennis event in 2017.
The idea is to hold a tennis challenger event in June of next year at which two or three major stars of the world of tennis would compete. The mayor commented that he supported the idea and that the idea of developing the city’s tourism brand into sporting events was a positive step. He also added that with the rise of Ana Konjuh in the rankings has helped raise the city’s profile as a sporting city.
