The Strasbourg International Tournament is held in May and is the biggest clay-court tournament in France, after Roland Garros. The finest women players in the world have played in the tournament, including Steffi Graf, Lindsay Davenport, Jennifer Capriati, Amélie Mauresmo and, more recently, Maria Sharapova and Marion Bartoli.
In 2011, the tournament moved to facilities right next to the European institutions, giving a new dimension to an event which has become a key date in the French tennis calendar.
The Strasbourg tournament is an eco-responsible event, and since 2010, substantial measures have been taken to limit carbon emissions, while the carbon footprint is published at the end of the tournament.
The excellent facilities have provided the backdrop to many extraordinary and passion-filled matches.
