The BNP Paribas Open is the largest two-week combined ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and WTA Premier professional tennis tournament in the world. It is held annually in March and features the top men and women professional players competing in a 96 singles draw and 32 doubles draw. The tournament offers more than $10 million in prize money with each of the Champions earning a $1 million prize purse. It is the only professional tournament in the world that provides Hawkeye, the official line-challenge system for players, on all match courts for both main and qualifying rounds.
Located in Indian Wells, CA, just outside of Palm Springs, it is considered one of the most beautiful and spectacular venues with perfect weather in March. In 2015, more than 456,000 people attended the event and over 350 media from all over the world covered the BNP Paribas Open.
