For over 40 years, BNP Paribas has supported tennis with a passion that has never dimmed. The Group shares a number of key values with the sport of tennis and, both in our daily business and in our sponsoring activities, we strive to place people at the heart of everything we do. The loyalty that BNP Paribas has shown to tennis clearly reflects the kind of relationship which the Bank is determined to forge with its clients.
Through its unfailing commitment, the Group has become the number one partner of tennis in all its various dimensions, supporting both the amateur game and the professional circuit, local clubs as well as international events, plus university competitions and wheelchair tennis tournaments.
Official sponsor of Davis Cup since 2001, BNP Paribas became its title sponsor in 2002 and in 2005 went on to rename the premier team competition in women’s tennis Fed Cup by BNP Paribas. The bank also supports Junior Davis Cup and Junior Fed Cup by BNP Paribas as well as wheelchair tennis with BNP Paribas World Team Cup.
BNP Paribas’ involvement in the top tournaments on the professional circuit provides excellent opportunities for us to meet clients in a friendly setting. Through a range of educational and socially-oriented programmes, the Group also demonstrates its basic values and commitment to the society in which it does business.
Our new strapline "We are tennis" really says it all, encapsulating our determination to promote tennis for everyone and in all its forms. With the creation of wearetennis.com, BNP Paribas demonstrates once again its dynamic approach to global sports sponsorship and underlines its position as the number one partner of tennis at all levels.

The International Tennis Federation has announced a three-year agreement with the German-based company Tennis-Ticker GmbH, as of 2013, as Preferred Live Scoring Partner of the ITF Junior Circuit and ITF Seniors Circuit.
Tennis-Ticker GmbH is a German based start-up company that offers live scoring for all kinds
of tennis events. The Tennis-Ticker system was
developed in 2009 and was first used at the German National Championships during that year. In May 2010 the German Tennis Association (DTB) decided to introduce Tennis-Ticker live scoring at all German ITF Pro Circuit events and at all the ties of the German Bundesliga. The enterprise started expanding outside of Germany in 2011 and since then has worked in collaboration with tournaments in Austria, Belgium, France, Romania, Sweden, South Africa, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates. On top of that all Bundesliga matches in Austria, France and Switzerland increased their online visibility with the service. In 2012, a total of 6328 matches were displayed on the live scoring system and all the scorecards can be downloaded free of charge on www.Tennis-Ticker.com.
Tennis-Ticker will have the exclusive rights to market and sell their scoring services as the Preferred Live Scoring Partner of the ITF Junior and Seniors Circuits, and will be able to offer packages to tournaments that include point-by-point live scoring by the chair umpire or game-by-game live scoring for matches without chair umpires. Tennis-Ticker provides the scores live on the internet or via a Tennis-Ticker App for iPhones and iPads in a system that is easy to set up and does not require a Wi-Fi or a LAN network at the tournament site. Scorecards and statistics can be downloaded free of charge and sponsors can be given exposure on the live score web-interface.
