Over and above our partnerships at all levels of the game, our commitment to the sport of tennis is also reflected in a wide range of social activities across the world.
In 2012, BNP Paribas launched its “We Are Tennis Solidaire” programme, through which the Group provides moral and financial support to children and teenagers in hospitals across France. Through this programme, we hope to help install or renovate common spaces in hospitals, making them more livable and fun for young people and their families. Several events with tennis stars have also been organized in these same hospitals, and many more are on the horizon.
