5th Slam, BNP Paribas Open By
My favorite tournament of the year, the BNP Paribas open, aka the 5th slam. This tournament has all the makings of a Major. It hosts both the ATP and WTA attracting every top player in the world. A two week event with the highest attendance level other then the 4 majors.
The BNP Paribas Open, formally
the Pacific Life Open, was the
first and only tournament in the
world to include shot spot on
every court. With the backing of
tech Mogul Larry Ellison this
event has grown with the
construction of a second stadium
court set to open in March 2014.
If you plan to attend this year
you will be rewarded with
intimate practice courts used by
all the players, including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and more.
Walk up and watch you favorite
player up close and personal
playing a practice set or just
having a hit.
There is a large screen display of the stadium court matches. You can relax in the beer garden without missing any of the action. Oh, did I mention the weather...80 degrees and sunny suit your taste?
Indian Wells is just 20 miles east of Palm Springs, Ca. It has beautiful resorts and hotels within the city and the surrounding area. My favorite, the La Quinta Resort and Spa, is where many of the pros stay during the 2 weeks.
If you're a tennis fan then this event has to be on your go to list.
