After a two-and-a-half-year hiatus, the 2021 BNP Paribas Open will celebrate the return of professional tennis to the desert from October 4 - 17. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome our fans and players back to our idyllic desert oasis, as we host the first ever fall-edition of our tournament.
After one of the most difficult years in recent memory, we’ve been working diligently to facilitate the successful return of professional tennis to Indian Wells. And now, thanks to collaborative efforts between the ATP and WTA Tours, our staff, sponsors, and everyone else involved throughout our local community, we’re ready to transform the Indian Wells Tennis Garden into the epicenter of the tennis universe this fall.
This October, the world’s top ATP and WTA Tour players will once again descend on Tennis Paradise in hopes of capturing the prestigious Baccarat trophy. Will a legendary icon cement their status with another title in the desert or will an unheralded newcomer orchestrate a career-defining breakthrough? No matter what happens, we guarantee that you won’t want to miss out on the return of Tennis Paradise!
Bill Gates, Gladys Knight, Ben Stiller, Bill Russell, Pete Sampras. Those are just a sample of the celebrities and superstars that have made their way to Tennis Paradise over the years. Just like all of our incredible fans, they come for the world-class tennis, electrifying ambiance, and idyllic atmosphere that they can only experience at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
Who will take to Tennis Paradise in 2021? Make sure to keep an eye out as you peruse the grounds and watch the action this October, as you never know who you might run into in Tennis Paradise.
