Thomas Lyte, the UK-based silverware company, has agreed a five-year deal with the ATP, the organiser of the top men’s tennis tour, to become the exclusive official trophy and silverware supplier to the ATP Finals.
The agreement will see the company design, create and restore trophies and silverware for the ATP, as well as make new replicas and awards for players.
Since the pair's long-standing partnership kicked off in 2009, Thomas Lyte has designed trophies for both the ATP Finals and the ATP Year-End World Number One.
This year's ATP Finals began on 14 November and concluded yesterday (21 November), with Alexander Zverev beating Daniil Medvedev in the final of the competition.
Other ATP partners include Emirates, FedEx, Nitto, Lacoste, Tennis Point and the recently-added Therabody.
Thomas Lyte has also produced trophies for the soccer's FA Cup, Rugby World Cup’s Webb Ellis Cup, AFC Asian Cup and esports’ League of Legends.
Massimo Calvelli, chief executive of the ATP, said: “Known across the globe for creating iconic sporting trophies, Thomas Lyte is a perfect fit for the ATP. We are excited to build on our relationship as we continue to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the world’s best tennis players.”
Kevin Baker, chief executive and founder of Thomas Lyte, added: “This long-term partnership with the ATP means our team will carry on playing a central role as the ATP recognises the achievements and hard work put in by the players over a full year ahead of the thrilling climax to the ATP Tour season.”
