Grey Goose Vodka in partnership with the US Open wants you to know that the tennis balls may be landing in Flushing Meadow, Queens but ‘The Winning Shot’ is going to jump the East River and land an after-party somewhere on the streets of New York City.
Grey Goose, who has sponsored the prestigious US Open tennis tournament for nine years running, has overlaid a tennis court grid on the streets of NYC. On each day of the US Open finals, Grey Goose will celebrate winning shots hit by world-class players on the court. The location of these exceptional shots will then be translated onto Manhattan’s grid system, where Grey Goose will surprise individuals with extraordinary private after-parties. Individuals can receive alerts and RSVP at winningshot.greygoose.com.
“Grey Goose honors those who Fly Beyond® in their athletic endeavors and acknowledges their extraordinary paths to achievement,” said Tom Swift, VP Managing Director, GREY GOOSE vodka. “We look forward to providing US Open spectators and enthusiasts across New York City with the opportunity to celebrate these individuals’ wins, and be a real part of the excitement both on and off the court with us through ‘The Winning Shot’.”
