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.

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’.
