The BNP Paribas Open kicks off today, and we are thrilled to be a contributing sponsor for the event. This is our first time as a sponsor for this tournament, and we plan to have some fun with it!
The BNP Paribas Open is the largest professional two-week combined ATP and WTA Tour tennis tournament in the world. 96 players compete in the singles, and 32 teams compete in the double draws. The tournament takes place at Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Southern California, March 9 – March 22. Top-ranked players will be there to compete, including Novak Djokovik, Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, and many more.
There are a lot of reasons to get excited about the tournament this year. Will Djokovic keep his title? Will we see a three-time champ in Sharapova, Hantuchova, or Williams? Will we see new champions from among the many rising stars? And the tournament is celebrating its 40th anniversary as well.
We'll be celebrating with them on social media this week. Follow us on Twitter for our #bnppo15 tech tips of the day and send us a selfie from the event for a chance to win a Barracuda sports pack. We'll draw a winner at the end of the tournament.
