Every summer, the Belgian coast hosts with BNP Paribas Fortis the Rising Stars Tennis Tour. These official men’s tournaments are free and give a great boost to young Belgian talent (in 2014, one of them won a € 15,000 prize, and seven others won €10,000). This event allows players to gain experience but also to earn their first points for the ATP rankings.
2.2.1. RISING STARS TOUR

On the court, the beach…

The Rising Stars Tennis Tour with BNP Paribas Fortis runs throughout the summer. In 2014, racquets were swung in Damme, Coq, Knokke, Westende, Duinbergen, Ostende, La Panne and Middelkerke.  Alongside the tournament, many festive events run such as Kids Day, Ladies Day and the meet & greet with players. In 2015, the fifth edition will be the opportunity to discover our future champions during matches and final which are completely free and open to the public.
