By supporting up-and-coming youngsters in the Porsche Talent Team since 2012, Porsche has transferred its successful juniors programme in motorsport to tennis. In close collaboration with the Deutscher Tennis Bund (DTB – German Tennis Association), the primary intention of the support is to make the set-up for talented juniors more professional by enhancing individual coaching and guidance both when practicing and at tournaments. In the 2022 season, Mara Guth, Eva Lys, Julia Middendorf, Noma Noha Akuge, Jule Niemeier, Nastasja Schunk and Alexandra Vecic will be supported in the Porsche Talent Team. “All six will be looking to catch the eye and move on to greater things by performing at a consistently high level," says Barbara Rittner, Head of Women's Tennis.
In the Porsche Junior Team, talented players under 18 such as Josy Daems, Carolina Kuhl, Tea Lukic, Joelle Steur, Julia Stusek, Ella Seidel und Marie Vogt are being promoted. “For us, it is important to not only support Porsche Team Germany in the Billie Jean King Cup,” says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “We also want to help promising juniors develop and accompany them on their way to the top.”
Since 2012, Porsche has been supporting the German national team in the Billie Jean King Cup as well as the junior teams, thus enabling individual support both in training and at tournaments. As an official partner of the two women's bases in Stuttgart-Stammheim and Kamen, Porsche also makes its contribution to offering the young female players best possible conditions for their sporting and personal development at their respective training facilities.
