The world’s women’s tennis is back in Poland!

Organised for the first time in 2021, the BNP Paribas Warsaw Open is the biggest tennis event in Poland. It is the country’s only WTA 250 tennis tournament, bringing together leading players from Poland and abroad.

The tournament’s title partners are BNP Paribas and the capital city of Warsaw.

The tournament, known as BNP Paribas Poland Open for the first two years, was launched in July 2021 in Gdynia with a charity match between Poland’s top players – Iga Świątek and Hubert Hurkacz. The first tournament’s winner was Maryna Zanevska from Belgium, who also won her first career title at the event.

The tournament moved to Warsaw a year later, where tennis fans had a chance to cheer on Iga Świątek, who lost after a gruelling battle in the quarterfinals to the eventual winner, Caroline Garcia of France.

The main singles draw lists 32 WTA-ranked players. The doubles draw is set for 16 doubles pairs, and there will be 16 players competing in the singles qualifying games.

During the tournament, numerous highlights and additional events are planned for tennis fans, with children being treated to a kids’ zone.

The WTA 250 tournament in Warsaw is the only WTA event of this category held in Poland. Having received the honour of organising this tournament, Poland has regained its place on the map of international tennis.

The tournament is organised by Tennis Consulting, which signed a long-term contract with the licence holder Octagon, one of the world’s leaders in sports.
