BNP Paribas partners with WTEF

August 31, 2017

A longtime partner to tennis worldwide, BNP Paribas today announced a new partnership with the Washington Tennis & Education Foundation (WTEF). For the first time, BNP Paribas will sponsor the WTEF’s Congressional Charity Tennis Tournament. The event takes place on Monday, September 25, 2017 at WTEF’s East Capitol Tennis Center.

The annual tournament raises funds to benefit education for low income youth, on and off the court. Members of Congress and former professional tennis players will play alongside corporate sponsors and WTEF members. This year’s event will feature tennis legends Kathy Rinaldi, Dan Waldman, and Richey Reneberg, and Congress members including Senator Shelley Moore Capito, Representative Joyce Beatty and Representative Charlie Dent; all of which are repeat CCTT participants.

Ilias Catsaros, BNP Paribas’ Head of Brand and Communications, Americas, said, “As well as sponsoring major professional tournaments, BNP Paribas has been a longtime supporter of youth tennis programs as a key component of our community outreach efforts. We are delighted to partner with WTEF to continue making investments in helping children in the Washington, D.C. area succeed.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with BNP Paribas, which has an incredible history of supporting tennis and giving back to the community,” said WTEF’s President, Eleni Rossides.
