Porsche has been sponsoring the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix ever since 1978 and has also been the organiser since 2002. The tournament in Stuttgart’s Porsche Arena was voted by the players as their favourite event in its category once again in 2019. Within the scope of its global partnership with the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA), Porsche is also the title partner of the “Porsche Race to Shenzhen”, the official qualifying ranking for the Shiseido WTA Finals. The Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer is also the exclusive automotive partner of the WTA as well as the WTA Finals, and this year the WTA tournaments in Lyon and St. Petersburg. As a premium partner of the “Deutsche Tennis Bund” (DTB – German Tennis Association), the company supports Porsche Team Germany in the Billie Jean King Cup (formerly the Fed Cup) and fosters up-and-coming players in the Porsche Talent Team and the Porsche Junior Team. Angelique Kerber, Julia Görges and Maria Sharapova give Porsche a face in tennis as Brand Ambassadors.
Porsche Race to the WTA Finals
Every year, the WTA Finals are held in China’s metropolis of the future: Shenzhen. The season’s top eight tennis players compete for the coveted trophy. Players qualify for the finals by earning points in the individual competitions. The player with the most points wins the Porsche Race to Shenzhen. See who’s ahead at the moment.
Tennis is also a team sport. Porsche Team Germany brings together the best German women’s tennis players. The national team succeeded in playing an important role in the Fed Cup again, thanks to targeted support. Find out more about our national team: Porsche Team Germany.
If you want to get to the top, you have to start early. That’s why Porsche also supports young talent. The Porsche Talent Team consists of hopeful players on their way to the top, while the girls in the Porsche Junior Team are still in school. Both teams need individual support, and Porsche is helping. Learn more.
The centerpiece is the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart. But women’s tennis deserves more. That’s why Porsche sponsors other Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) tournaments and supports exciting tennis projects.
In addition to the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, Porsche is present at many other events, especially in motorsport and golf. Find out more about the wide range of Porsche events that have one thing in common – a passion for sports.
Behind every success is a winning woman: Angelique Kerber, Julia Görges, and Maria Sharapova. They are the faces of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix and women’s tennis, and represent Porsche as brand ambassadors around the globe.
