The Business Club was founded in 2005 to offer a new exclusive Swiss Indoors event. Since its inception, this successful charity event has been held again each year. Numerous prominent guest speakers from the worlds of business, politics and sports have made special appearances in the Business Club.

The purpose of the event is to cultivate contacts and relationships in the positive atmosphere of Swiss Indoors Basel.
The entire net proceeds from the events are donated to a non-profit institution every year.


What’s included

Swiss Indoors Basel offers a special new venue with the opening of the Business Club.

The purpose is to cultivate contacts and relationships in the positive atmosphere of Swiss Indoors Basel.

The association, whose members include sponsors as well as figures from the political and cultural sphere surrounding the tournament, are sure to quickly enhance their profiles at this premier networking opportunity in the Swiss world of sports.

Each year, the net proceeds from the events benefit a different social institution. In 2008, for example, it was the United Kids Foundation network for children, the umbrella organisation of the Cleven Becker Foundation and Veronica Ferres’ Power-Child association.
