Tennis BC is excited to announce National Bank as the new title sponsor for the historic Stanley Park
Open, the biggest public-courts tournament in Canada. Tennis BC has been fortunate to build on past
success, and this sponsorship represents a step forward for tennis in the province.
National Bank is closely associated with the most prestigious tennis events in Canada, such as the
National Bank Open. This title-sponsor transition at the Stanley Park Open brings new opportunities for
Tennis BC to continue to grow Tennis Canada’s National Bank supported initiatives like Girls.Set.Match.,
indigenous outreach, and programs for disabled players.
“Tennis has grown over the years, and the National Bank partnership provides Tennis BC with a major
sponsor with a strong background of growing tennis in Canada from the grassroots to the top
professional level for all Canadians,” notes Tennis BC Executive Director, Jonathan Wornell.
The 2023 Stanley Park Open takes place July 7-23. It features top-level Open and junior players, offers
community events, and competitive categories for many levels of play, including wheelchair tennis.
Manager of Events for Tennis BC, Max Korkh, notes that, “This exciting opportunity with National Bank
allows Tennis BC to align with Tennis Canada, the main governing body of tennis in the country, and
offers further potential for growth for the sport at all levels.”
