Setting a new precedent in corporate social responsibility, RIF Trust, part of the Latitude Group, an international leading residency and citizenship by investment advisory, steps up to support and sponsor UAE based athletes.
Through this new initiative, the company continues to diversify its ongoing community CSR efforts.
RIF Trust has recently sponsored world-class padel player Claudio Eduardo Bobadilla as proud ambassador for sport of padel due to his prominent name and outstanding track-record.
Hailing from Argentina, Claudio Bobadilla was ranked 15 in the world in 2006. Now, he has chosen to pursue a coaching career at the World Padel Academy (WPA) in the UAE, hoping to inspire new generations to play padel through his dedication to this sport.
Last month, Claudio competed in the Golden Category matches of the NAS Sports Tournament and just recently he played with the top ranked paddle player in the world - Alejandro Galan - in an exhibition match in Sharjah.
Being a passionate padel player himself, David Regueiro, COO of RIF Trust and Latitude, commented, “It is an honour to support Claudio, and we look forward to sponsoring him in his upcoming matches. We value sports’ sponsorship as an initiative, among many others, to promote a healthy lifestyle for all ages, and we pledge to continue our ongoing efforts.”
