The term ‘Ladies’ Day’ has become synonymous with glamour, fashion and fun, and Ladies’ Day at the South African Tennis Open at Montecasino on Wednesday 2 February will be no exception.

The organisers and our generous sponsor, leading technology integrator Dimension Data, have pulled out all the stops to ensure that Ladies’ Day will be a fun-filled occasion, with top-class entertainment, delicious food and dazzling fashion.

The day starts with a sumptuous brunch at the nearby Longmeadow Restaurant.  Its rolling green lawns and beautiful gardens make it a fitting setting for the start of an unforgettably glamorous and opulent day.
Entertainment will be on the romantic side, with the velvety voice of crooner Jacques Lagesse and the unique close harmonies of the inimitable five-man-group, Denim.

There will also be a fashion show, choreographed by Wayne Stafford, which will include designs by David Tlale, one of South Africa’s top designers whose creations have graced the catwalks at New York Fashion Week.

Because Ladies Day is all about glamour, guests are expected to don their best bib-and-tucker, and there will be prizes handed out on centre court for the best dressed woman, as well as for the best hat.

Guests will be provided with a goodie bag, which will include a Guinot skin care product, as well as a voucher for a Guinot Hydradermie Facial worth R1 200, a gift from Dimension Data, a magazine and other surprises.

Guinot will also have a stand at Longmeadow, where guests can apply sun protection products before taking the shuttle to the tennis at Montecasino.

But the fun doesn’t end there – there will be a High Tea back at Longmeadow at 14h30 in the afternoon, where Jacques Lagesse will once again croon the evergreen classics.

Just in case some of the guests are in danger of dozing off, E-Boyz from the Tshwane Dance Theatre will have their toes tapping as they show them what dancing is all about.

Definitely not a day to be missed!

Tickets for Ladies’ Day cost R300, with proceeds going to the Starfish Foundation, which reaches out to orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa, bringing them life and hope.
