Singleton Junior Open organisers Melanie Vesper and Jo Evans have landed a hole-in-one major sponsor in Tradecore Industries.

Representatives Barry Hebbard (Managing Director) and Murray Considine (Task Coordinator) admit they're delighted to be recognised as the naming right sponsor for the state's biggest regional junior golf tournament to be held on August 11.

"A majority of our blokes are over the age of 35, married with a couple of kids so we want to support those junior sports," Hebbard explained.

"We sponsor cricket, soccer and footy teams from as far as Gunnedah and this is just another sponsorship for us and we're looking forward to it."

Both Vesper and Evans welcomed the news in their strive to improve the tournament each year.

"The first year was really hard but last year we had Glencore and now this year we're very excited to have Barry and the team at Tradecore commit to the event," Evans said.

"In the district there are not many other club run junior open events other than Nelson Bay and Merewether so we're proud of our efforts."

Vesper added, "Last year a quarter of our field was female so we were very proud of that achievement as well."
