En avant les filles !

The “En avant les filles !” operation was born 10 years ago from the initiative of Henry Gogy, CST at the Nouvelle-Aquitaine league, who wished to (re)give a taste for competition to young girls who are discovering tennis . The objective of this program is for girls to have fun during adapted competitions.


Let's go girls, there are two gatherings per year during which girls under 12 years old who play in red and orange balls meet for a dedicated and friendly afternoon supervised by a technical team.


This project is sponsored by our historic partner ENGIE, which supports the development of women's tennis by offering equipment to young participants.


Each year, the Biarritz ENGIE OPEN invites around sixty girls from surrounding clubs to share a sporting and friendly moment before the final of the tournament with the aim of highlighting this regional operation committed to the public and our partners.


Teachers and volunteers are called upon during this event to offer fun ball game workshops by level so that these young girls can create connections and have fun.


The girls will be in the spotlight on the Biarritz clay court before giving way to our champions!
