THE BBVA INTERNATIONAL OPEN OF VALENCIA WILL IMPLEMENT MORE THAN 10 MEASURES TO BECOME THE TOURNAMENT WITH THE LOWEST CARBON FOOTPRINT ON THE CALENDAR
The BBVA Open Internacional Valencia Tournament, with the help of Anabel Medina, will bring the best women’s tennis to the capital of the Turia, which from September 12 to 19, 2021 will host at the Sporting Club de Tenis a trophy with prizes of up to $80,000 for its participants that will become the second most important in Spain in the women’s section.
The event bases its philosophy on values such as integration, with competitions planned for blind players, the promotion of female talent and sustainability.
The latter will be precisely one of the aspects with which, in collaboration with its main sponsor, it will seek to become the trophy with the smallest carbon footprint in the calendar.
In this sense, promoters, sponsors and organizers are already working on up to 10 points that will save energy, recycling and emissions for the city.
In addition to the promotion of public transport, as well as the provision of parking for electric scooters and bicycles.
The philosophy will also seek to eliminate plastic waste as much as possible and encourage recycling. To this end, compostable cups will be offered to all attendees and the balls from each match will be donated to schools or charitable organizations to extend their useful life.
Paper and smoking areas will complete the commitment to biodiversity. In the first case, giving the option of accessing the enclosure through a QR code and without printed tickets, and in the second case, informing people attending the tournament that it will be smoke-free.
Edition six of the European Open is off to a flying start: from October 17 to 24, the Lotto Arena in Antwerp will once again become the hotspot for top tennis in Belgium. Who will be the successor of the Frenchman Ugo Humbert?
The ATP 250 tournament in Antwerp will again take place in the Lotto Arena. You can choose from different ticket categories for the 2021 edition, depending on the day and the seat. Tickets give access to both tennis courts, Center Court and Court 1, and the Fan Corner of the Lotto Arena. The ticket prices vary from 25 to 150 euros. Click HERE for all ticket info.
Tournament director Dick Norman: “We continue to innovate. The most exclusive, new ticket category is the Box experience. You can enjoy matches from a box with the best view of Center Court. We are convinced that the many hundreds of thousands of tennis fans will be delighted to see top tennis again in Belgium. We are making extra efforts towards ticketing. Children under 12 get a 30% discount, students get a 10% discount on tickets with their student card (2021-2022) that they show with the ticket at the entrance of the Lotto Arena, and seniors +60 get a 50% discount on Monday and Tuesday. It is still too early to announce the names of participants, but we are again ensuring a strong field of participants. In this way, we will once again strengthen the image of Flanders as a tennis region.”
