In April 2013, the club’s Piraeus office staff teamed up with their colleagues at Richards Hogg Lindley to co-host The Greek Shipping  Open 2013. The tennis tournament was exclusively for members of the shipping community and featured men’s singles, women’s singles and mixed-doubles matches. We hosted 92 competitors representing 62 different companies from the Greek shipping community. The finals were held on the evening of 25 April, in which we watched  Apostolos Kaltis (Gleamray Maritime Inc.) prevail over George Sigalas (Trade Fortune Inc.), while the ladies was won by Vera Popova (Roswell Navigation Corp.) over Elpida Skoufalou (Starbulk S.A.). In the mixed doubles, the winning couple was Ivan Pahigiannis/Paris Panagiotidou (Stealth Maritime Corp. S.A.). The gentlemen’s doubles was won by Nikos Hidiroglou and Michael Vlazakis (Parcifal Yachting S.A.) over Makis Karatzas (Minerva) and Stergios Harisiadis (Hermes/ Harisiadis). During the tournament, the spectators donated €1,370 for the needs of The Ark of the World, an association supporting abandoned children. David Marock, CEO of Charles Taylor Group, awarded the trophies to the winners and thanked all the players for participating.
