The Dr. Henry Fok Corporate Patron League (CPL) is a long-standing annual tennis competition featuring corporate teams across the commercial sector of Hong Kong, first held in 1993.
The Corporate Patron League has thrived over the past few decades as tennis in Hong Kong has evolved from a recreational activity enjoyed by individuals, into a popular corporate activity also. It has helped many companies and organisations to strengthen the esprit de corps of their members and promote a healthy work-life balance. Throughout the past years, many leading local and global companies have participated in the Corporate Patron League.
The Corporate Patron League has played an important role in promoting the culture of sports and reinforcing the status of tennis in the corporate circle as well as donating surplus funds to the HKTA’s Hong Kong Player Development Programme to fund Hong Kong’s most promising junior tennis players.
