The Game.Set.Equity. initiative

Advancing gender equity is key to promoting tennis within Canada. That’s why National Bank and Tennis Canada have partnered on the Game.Set.Equity. initiative. From local courts to the professional circuit, the goal of this commitment is to create lasting changes throughout the tennis community. And we’re putting our money where our mouth is. Starting 2027, the National Bank Open will award the same prize purse for both the men’s and women’s players. Another positive step forward for Canadian tennis!

“This commitment is the beginning of something big! To allow more women and girls to enjoy the benefits of the sport. To grow in their tennis journey. And to get the exposure and recognition they deserve."

Lucie Blanchet, Executive Vice-President, Personal Banking and Client Experience at National Bank of Canada

Play Your Court Program

It doesn’t take much to play tennis. All you need is a ball and a racquet. But what happens when the court isn’t well-maintained?

That’s why National Bank and Tennis Canada have joined forces to create the Play Your Court Program to ensure local communities can receive funding to revitalize their outdoor community tennis courts. This initiative will provide $3 million in funding to restore over 100 courts all across Canada.

How to receive funding

Little details that matter

At National Bank, we believe that to reach your goal, you got to keep your eyes on the ball.

No matter your goal.

Focus on it, visualize it, put in the time and effort, day in, and day out.

To do that, you need the right environment around you, and the right people behind you.

That’s why we’re proud to support impactful and inclusive initiatives that ensure we can all rally behind Canadian tennis.
