As title sponsor of the Geneva Open tennis tournament, the Bank is committed to contribute to the future of an event which is an integral part of French-speaking Switzerland and Genevan sports heritage and which is fully in line with the values ​​of performance and entrepreneurship that we express on a daily basis in the service we provide to our clients.

Classified as an ATP 250 tournament since 2015, under the umbrella of Geneva Trophy Promotion Sàrl, the Geneva Open is played in the unique setting of the Tennis Club of the Parc des Eaux-Vives in Geneva, offering a unique environment and conditions that make it one of the most popular tournaments among players on the European circuit. Its usual place in the calendar, the week before the Roland-Garros Grand Slam Tournament, ensures it attracts special attention from the tennis community. Recognised champions include two-time winner Stan Wawrinka (2016 and 2017) and Alexander Zverev, 2019 winner.

The Geneva tournament has a rich and memorable history, as it enjoyed a first incarnation from 1980 to 1991, also at the Parc des Eaux-Vives, with numerous prestigious winners including Björn Borg, Mats Wilander, Marc Rosset, Henri Leconte and Thomas Muster.

For almost 15 years, Gonet has been firmly committed to sports projects that share its values. In sailing, for instance, the D35 Gonet won the 2006 Bol d’Or and the Monofoil Gonet – a revolutionary monohull with foils – has been a pioneer since its launch in 2018. Between 2015 and 2018, as part of a support programme for young sporting talents of the future ("Gonet Going Up"), the Bank also supported runner Julien Wanders and tennis player Antoine Bellier.
