Ladies and gentlemen, dear tennis fans
From 22 October to 30 October 2016, the Swiss Indoors Basel will once again be showcasing world-class tennis as part of the ATP WORLD TOUR 500. In the end-of-season run-up to the ATP World Tour Finals in London, the superstars of today and the champions of tomorrow will meet at the highlight event in the Swiss tennis calendar and one of the world’s most prestigious indoor tournaments.
The national broadcaster Schweizer Fernsehen will provide live programming from the event for the whole week, allowing millions of viewers both in Switzerland and abroad to follow the world-class matches on television. More than 70,000 spectators are set to follow the games live at the St. Jakobshalle, creating a center court atmosphere that is unique to Basel.
You can be sure of a tennis festival to look forward to. On behalf of Swiss Indoors Basel, I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to the players, sponsors, media and fans.
President Swiss Indoors Basel
