The Ladies European Tour has extended its partnership with the International Sports Promotion Society (ISPS Handa).
It will also become the tour’s official charity as part of the two-year agreement, with an option to extend for a further year.
ISPS Handa is already one of the biggest supporters of women’s golf and sponsored three tournaments on the 2014 Ladies European Tour schedule.
The LET will use its series of partnerships with national governing bodies, tournament promoters, players and regional tours to provide strategic opportunities for ISPS Handa.
“ISPS is delighted to enter into a strategic partnership with the Ladies European Tour,” said ISPS Chairman Dr Haruhisa Handa.
“We’ve been working closely with the LET since 2012 to showcase the power of sport.
“We look forward to developing our efforts to promote blind and disabled golf and our primary aspiration for golf to become included in the Paralympics.”
As well as tournament sponsorship, the LET will look to explore additional areas of cooperation, including support of young players, the creation of charitable global ambassadors and activities to promote ISPS’s goals.
“We’re extremely proud of our relationship with ISPS and couldn’t be more pleased to extend our partnership to help raise the global stature of both women’s and disability golf,” said LET Chief Executive Ivan Khodabakhsh.
“ISPS has done so much to grow the game and we plan to build on these achievements and take the relationship to the next level.”
