BNP Paribas Israel, partner of the International Tennis Federation since 2004, actively participated in the Tennis events held in Israel (Davis Cup, Fed Cup). As part of the Davis Cup, Israel and Peru had meets on the 19, 20 and 21st of September at the Ramat HaSharon Tennis Center in Israel.

During the matches, BNP Paribas Israel opened the doors of its VIP centre to welcome its leading corporate clients. Executives from more than 120 Israeli companies attended the three-day tournament.

The Israeli national team celebrated its victory in the BNP Paribas Lounge in the company of the bank’s management. To round off its sponsorship activity, BNP Paribas Israel has been sponsoring the Israel Chess Federation since July 1st 2008.

Israel, which has some 800,000 amateur chess players, is ranked third by the World Chess Federation (ranked by level of players). The partnership has a big local impact and covers a different target audience from tennis, a major sport in Israel.
