Score tickets to WTA Finals with ST Twitter scavenger hunt

SINGAPORE - Win two seats to watch world-class tennis next week, on top of paraphernalia autographed by a WTA star - all while taking part in a scavenger hunt.

The Straits Times is giving away three pairs of tickets - all Category 1 tickets worth almost $130 a pair - to this year's BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global through a Twitter scavenger hunt from tomorrow to Sunday.

One pair of tickets will be given out on each of the three days.

In the scavenger hunt, clues will be tweeted to readers on the @STcom Twitter account each afternoon, bearing the hashtag #STixtoWTAFinals.

The clues will come in two parts, with the second clue leading to the location of the tickets. It will contain a picture of a copy of The Straits Times, offering hints on where the prize is kept. For instance: Clue 1: How many singles players will take part in the WTA Finals?#STixtoWTAFinals Answer: Eight Clue 2: This is where the eight singles players will be competing, can you #guesswhere? #STixtoWTAFinals

(A picture of ST will be tweeted, giving hints as to where exactly in the Singapore Indoor Stadium the tickets can be found).

 

The first reader to find the place where the prizes are kept will win a pair of tickets to the WTA Finals, which is being held at the Singapore Sports Hub, as well as tennis paraphernalia autographed by a WTA star.

The WTA Finals is the prestigious season finale of the women's professional tennis tour, featuring eight of the year's top singles players and eight doubles pairs.

World No. 1 Angelique Kerber of Germany will be gunning for top honours at the US$7 million (S$9.7 million) event.

Defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, Romania's Simona Halep and French Open champion Garbine Muguruza are also featuring in the event.
