TotalEnergies, title sponsor of the prestigious event, has announced a collaboration with local Qatari artists to create various designs used throughout the Qatar TotalEnergies Open women’s tournament.
This comes as part of the company’s efforts aimed at supporting local cultural and artistic talent in Qatar.
The announcement was made during a recent agreement signing ceremony by Nasser Al Khelaifi, president of Qatar Tennis, Squash and Badminton Federation; and Matthieu Bouyer, managing director, TotalEnergies EP Qatar and Country Chair, for the renewal of the tournament sponsorship for another three years starting from 2022.
During the ceremony, the tournament artwork created by Qatari artists Noof Al Naama and Ibrahim Al Baker was unveiled and presented to Khelaifi. As explained by the artists, the design represents a falcon feather, a symbol for Qatari pride and strength, surrounding a tennis racket.
“It is a great honour to be representing the Qatari youth and aspiring artists in Qatar and to design the TotalEnergies tournament logo,” said Naama.
TotalEnergies also teamed up with Kaltham Al Majid, a young Qatari jewellery designer, who is on a mission to represent Qatari culture and values by incorporating tradition, culture and nature into fine jewellery. Her unique collection commissioned by TotalEnergies is being gifted to all players of the tennis tournament.
TotalEnergies has undertaken a more active and engaged role toward the Qatari community and society, with a mission to support local talent and bridge culture, heritage and sports through various initiatives and events, such as Qatar TotalEnergies Open.
Bouyer said, “We are excited about this collaboration with Qatari artists Noof Al Naama, Ibrahim Al Baker, and Kaltham Al Majid. We are happy to provide a platform where we can showcase and support the development of both young artists and Qatar’s rich culture and art.”
