The website wearetennis dot bnp paribas includes news about Tennis competitions. The site is managed by BNPParibas who sponsors Tennis since 1973, when the French Tennis Federation asked BNP Paribas to finance the construction of the center court box seats at Roland Garros Stadium. Since then, BNP Paribas is a proud sponsor of the Roland Garros French Open and of many other tennis tournaments.

The little green tennis ball is dedicated to mobile navigation. This ball always stays in a very convenient position for a mobile site user.
