This year’s BNP Paribas Open Tennis Tournament in Indian Wells will offer players the largest pool of money in the history of the tournament.
19 million dollars!
In 2023, the total prize money was just a meager 17.6 million dollars.
While it is true that players like Novack Djokovich and Carlos Alcaraz, Coco Gauff and Iga Swiatek are winning big prize money on the pro tennis tour, the reason is because they win often.
There are plenty of pro tennis players who have not yet achieved elite status, who may not go deep into a tournament, and don’t make much money at all relative to their expenses, travel, coaches, trainers, nutrition, etc.
With this increase in total prize money, more than 1 million dollars in additional prize money will go to players in ther qualifying through second rounds of the tournament.
The 2024 BNP Paribas Open will offer all eight women’s and men’s quarterfinal matches on one day, Thursday, March 14th 2024.
Championship weekend will kick off with the women’s doubles final at 11:00am local time on Saturday, March 16, followed by both men’s singles semifinals.
Championship Sunday on March 17th will begin at 11 in the morning, with the Women’s Singles Final, followed by the Men’s Singles Final at 2 pm.
In addition, fans can now begin their Tennis Paradise experience earlier than ever before on Sunday, March 3rd with rising Women’s players competing in qualifying play, as well as a full slate of practice for the Women and the Men. Tickets for each day of qualifying play, Sunday, March 3rd through Tuesday, March 5th, are $10 each, with all proceeds benefiting The Champions Volunteer Foundation.
