The BBVA Open Internacional Valencia Tournament, under the guidance of Anabel Medina and Tennium, will bring the best women’s tennis to the capital of the Turia from September 12 to 19. It will be host at the Sporting Club de Tenis. It will have prizes of up to $80,000 for its participants, which makes it the second most important women’s tournament in Spain.
This synergy between Anabel and Tennium, with the support of BBVA as the main sponsor, seeks to consolidate the ITF circuit with an international vision and aims to enter the WTA category in the future.
All the agents involved in the event were present at the launch press conference, in which the tennis player from Torrent said she was ‘very excited, to be honest. When I created a women’s ITF tournament in Valencia six years ago, I did it with the idea that it would be a long-term project, and today this growth is confirmed’.
Along the same lines, Joaquín Rios, CEO of Tennium, emphasized its commitment ‘once again to the future of women’s tennis. After signing our first WTA in Argentina for 2021, we could not be more satisfied with adding this second women’s tournament to our list of projects. We are also pleased to be able to carry out this great project with Anabel Medina, one of the most relevant faces of women’s tennis in Spain. After finishing the Conde de Godó Trophy, preparing for this new BBVA Open Internacional de Valencia is a challenge that we are looking forward to’.
