In 2023, BNP Paribas is celebrating 50 years of loyalty and commitment to tennis, with the ever-stronger conviction that this sport has the ability to mobilize beyond the courts and have a positive impact, especially for new generations. .
On the occasion of this 50th anniversary, BNP Paribas is organizing the “Match Solidaire”, in association with the French Tennis Federation. A festive and charitable meeting around a first round match, on Sunday May 28 from 7 p.m. on the Philippe Chatrier court. Nearly 10,000 young people will be invited to the match. To allow young fans to attend this unprecedented meeting and also play a part in it, part of the ticket office has been offered to them at the symbolic price of 10 euros. All of the profits from this ticket office will help to increase the kitty in favor of the Attrap’la Balle association. Dear to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, this promotes the inclusion of youth through tennis.

This match will be more than a first round between two players who go against each other. Many activities will be planned before and during the match, in the presence of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and the supercharged We Are Tennis Fan Academy and its fanfare which will make this match a great tennis celebration. But, beyond the festivities, this unprecedented meeting opens a new chapter in the beautiful story that BNP Paribas, faithful to the tennis of tomorrow for 50 years, wishes to continue to write with all the actors and lovers of tennis.
