Wingfield x Alexander Zverev Foundation

Alexander Zverev was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of four. 20 years later, he is now fighting the disease with his foundation. Wingfield supports gala event in aid of the Alexander Zverev Foundation.

According to the German Federal Ministry of Health, 7.2 percent of adults between the ages of 18 and 79 in Germany suffer from diabetes. In response to his own condition, Alexander Zverev recently founded his eponymous foundation to help people with diabetes live better with the disease. In addition to providing vital medication, the foundation primarily finances projects for affected children and young adults.

The first gala event in aid of the foundation recently took place at the Hotel Tannenhof, which Wingfield was happy to support as an event partner, providing a Wingfield box worth over €6,000 as one of the prizes for the evening's raffle. The raffle successfully raised funds for the Dianiño Foundation, the Diabetes Kids Foundation and the Klinik auf der Bult in Hanover. Congratulations to the lucky winners!

The evening was hosted by legendary Matthias Stach, who also had the pleasure to comment on Alexander Zverev's long-awaited comeback to the tennis court. The show match against brother Mischa took place on the Wingfield Court. Highlights of the first (semi-official) rallies after his injury at Roland Garros can be seen here.
