BNP Paribas ‘We are Tennis’
BNP Paribas in Jersey is the proud sponsor of The BNP Paribas ‘We Are Tennis’ annual Primary Schools Programme, which is developed in partnership with the Caesarean Tennis Club.
This initiative saw over 800 children from 21 local primary schools receive professional tennis coaching which culminated in a tournament that was held on 11th July 2014.
Students from all 21 participant primary schools across the Island took part in a fun tournament at Les Ormes Jersey. Although a competitive event, this provided a fun day out for the children who benefited not only from improving their tennis skills, but by building on their discipline and self-confidence which are both key for their future.
BNP Paribas, a lasting partnership with tennis
Since 1973, the relationship between BNP Paribas and tennis has grown increasingly strong. The BNP Paribas Group is now the leading partner of the sport worldwide, sponsoring about 550 tournaments a year, both professional and amateur. The Group also finances educational and social events linked to tennis, thus combining a passion for the game with social commitment.
The support BNP Paribas lends to big international competitions enables it to convey its brand image and thus to enhance its reputation and global exposure. It is also a way of deepening its personal relationships with customers and of meeting prospects the world over.
