Go behind the scenes
Since 2000, BNP Paribas has also been involved in selecting ball girls and boys at the Roland Garros French Open. In 2015, these young athletes were featured in a documentary, Terre de rêve, which followed the ball kids through every step of the selection process and was broadcast before the start of the competition. The film was a way to honor these quiet participants to each competition.
Over the course of the tournament, ball girls and boys run some 30,000 km across all courts, collecting nearly 300,000 balls and handing out 5,000 towels!
