We Are Tennis Cup 2019: Play it like Roger

May 29, 2019

Every year the BNP Paribas group and We Are Tennis organise an international tennis tournament for its employees for which the final is played at Roland Garros.

This year, 40 employees from BNP Paribas in Switzerland will participate in the national selection for the We Are Tennis Cup (WAT Cup). A chance for our employees to share their passion for tennis.

Tennis, a sport which embodies the values of BNP Paribas

Launched in 2015, the WAT Cup has become a major event for the employees of the BNP Paribas group. Every year, more than 30 countries and nearly 130 employees participate in and share the values of fair-play, responsiveness and performance.

In this fourth edition, 40 employees, from amateur to ranked players, have signed up for the adventure. The teams were formed through a random draw, a new process this year for BNP Paribas in Switzerland. It’s no longer a matter of forming teams with colleagues from your office, but about reaching out to everyone.

One dream: to step out onto the clay court at Roland Garros


On Friday, 29 March there will be successive matches throughout the day in the bid to determine which team will represent Switzerland in the International Grand Final which will bring together employees from all over the world.

As was the case in last year’s instalment of the WAT Cup, the International Grand Final will be played on the legendary Court 1 of Roland-Garros during the Grand Slam!

In 2018, the team for BNP Paribas in Switzerland tied for a third-place finish. Will their team spirit and passion make another appearance this year?
