The BNP Paribas Open started in 1974 as a simple fund raiser by the ATP in Arizona. After two years it moved to the Coachella Valley where it still remains. The first five years of the tournament were immensely successful but then it hit a stumbling block when the ATP decided to re-locate it to a new tennis stadium being built in Florida. Pasarell a member of the ATP and the Director of Tennis at the La Quinta Hotel convinced the bigwigs not to move the event. The hotel management also agreed to build a new stadium so the event moved to a 7500 seater stadium at the La Quinta soon afterwards in 1981.
As soon as the BNP Paribas Open moved to its new home there was a rapid surge in the profile of the tournament especially due to some epic matches but the dream was to take it even further. Pasarell wanted the event to become one of the pioneer tennis events on the ATP schedule with both men and women competitions being played at the same time. The first five years at the La Quinta were a huge success that brought the tournament media coverage and major sponsors. Tickets sale started to rise to the extent where it became virtually impossible to hold the event at its current location.
After a lot of hard work the tournament moved to its brand new location at the recently completed Grand Champions Hotel. The new venue debuted in 1987 and could hold up to ten thousand spectators at a time. It was the first year when the women competition was held simultaneously to the men’s event. The tournament reached a significant landmark in 1990 when it was named as an elite competition by the ATP. This achievement further increased the profile of the competition and soon it outgrew its current home and was in need of a bigger stadium.
The dream of a proper tennis stadium materialized with the completion of the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in 2000. It is one of the most stunning venues for tennis which was a perfect match for a big event like the BNP Paribas Open.  The venue has a big stadium as well as two small stadiums and covers an area of about fifty four acres. The competition has now evolved into a two week long tournament that sells over 270,000 BNP Paribas Open tickets over the course of its duration. The prize money has gone from two hundred and fifty thousand dollars to a staggering five million. The tournament has attracted some of the biggest names the sport has seen who have entertained fans with some of the greatest matches in tennis history at the BNP Paribas Open.
The BNP Paribas Open has gone from being a fund raising event to become one of the premier tennis championships in the world.  It is now taken as seriously by the players as a grand slam to make it one of the most attended events watched by over a billion people around the world.  So tennis fans grab your BNP Paribas Open tickets now and watch the world’s biggest players go head to head to serve up an amazing two week long doze of tennis at its very best.
