Edito de l'ENGIE


François Duport, Tournament Director


Directrice Régionale Nouvelle-Aquitaine

The Biarritz ENGIE Open - Pays Basque enters its 21st edition with a new sporting and societal influence. It is a real pleasure to demonstrate ENGIE's commitment to women's tennis and the values of sport through this tournament.


I am delighted with this new edition alongside the City of Biarritz, institutional and private partners, the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Tennis League and of course the BO Tennis Padel.

Partner since the 1st edition, this tournament illustrates loyalty to our commitments and our role as a company involved in local development. The ENGIE group is a major player in the energy transition and a benchmark in low-carbon energy and services. We support territories in their transition through innovative, efficient and environmentally friendly solutions to the needs of communities, industrialists and individuals.


The Biarritz ENGIE Open - Pays Basque is also an opportunity to combine our actions in terms of integration and social responsibility in sport. Thus the tournament will welcome young people from the Fête le Mur association, of which our Foundation is a partner, which uses tennis against all forms of exclusion.

But also will honor the young players who participated in the “En Avant les Filles” program that we run with the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Tennis League.


Furthermore, as part of its commitment to fighting all forms of violence, particularly that against women, ENGIE is also strongly committed to the REBOND Association which fights against sexual and psychological violence against young people in the sporting field. . An awareness workshop will be organized during the tournament.


The Biarritz ENGIE Open - Pays Basque is an essential passage for the emergence of future great champions of the circuit. I have no doubt that it will offer us great moments of emotion and wish François Duport, Jérôme Barrier and their teams great success in this new edition.

Very nice sporting and friendly event for all.



Regional Director Nouvelle-Aquitaine
