As the week of the Mubadala Tennis World Championship is in full swing, the organizers unveiled the official trophy for the 13th edition. Named “Season of Pearls,” the trophy pays a superb tribute to the UAE’s heritage of pearl diving.

Designed by Lasvit, this year’s design resembles Al Dean, a woven bag worn around the neck by pearl divers to carry the oysters they’ve collected.

Commenting on the design of the trophy, John Lickrish, CEO of Flash Entertainment, the organizers of the championship, said: Tribute to an essential pillar in the history of this country. Pearl diving has played an important role for generations, and it is with great pride that we can honor it. “

Leon Jakimič, owner and president of Lasvit, said: “Thanks to the Mubadala tennis world championship, we are able to connect the worlds of design and sport and we are very proud to see our trophy won by some of the best tennis players from around the world here in Abu Dhabi. “

The eight-man roster sees six of the world’s best male players, including five-time winner Rafael Nadal and two-time winner Andy Murray, come together for a series of playoffs at the Zayed Sports City International Tennis Center.
