BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation, a partner of the Swiss Open Geneva for 10 years, renews its commitment for three additional years

July 5, 2024

BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation is pleased to announce the renewal of its partnership with the Swiss Open Geneva for three additional years (2024-2026).

Since 2014, BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation has supported the wheelchair tennis tournament, among the most prestigious in the world, bringing together more than 80 players every year. The organization of the tournament relies on more than 100 volunteers, which includes around 30 staff members of BNP Paribas in Switzerland.

With the support of BNP Paribas Swiss Foundation, the Swiss Open Geneva has grown considerably over the last ten years and gained in visibility.

The past ten years have been marked by the improvement of the tournament’s infrastructures with the move to the Tennis Club Drizia-Miremont. The organization has also improved constantly throughout the years, embarking on a proactive approach towards sustainable responsibility. For the first time this year, the organization will also hold a “Swiss Open Tour” in various tennis clubs in the canton of Geneva.

The 2024 edition, which will take place during July 16-20, will be marked by the broadcasting of the finals in partnership with Léman Bleu channel.
