Van Duuren sponsors Dutch Junior Open
This year Van Duuren was sponsor of the Netherlands’ largest international youth tennis tournament: The TC Bakkum Dutch Junior Open. We have sponsored the TC Bakkum tennis club for the last three years, and our name adorns the green nets at the courts.
Since it’s first edition, the Dutch Junior Open has grown to become the largest international youth tennis championship of the Netherlands, and is one of the top 25 youth tennis tournaments in the entire world. This tournament has now been held 59 times at TC Bakkum, and has been known officially as the TC Bakkum Dutch Junior Open since 2015.
In the past, many up-and-coming tennis talents that later joined the ranks of European and world top players have taken part in the tournament, including Richard Krajicek, Sjeng Schalken, Kristie Boogert, Gaël Monfils, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gustavo Kuerten.
“We are very much in favour of sport, and are delighted to be able to play a part in supporting events for the youth,” says Jeroen van Duuren, explaining the motivation to sponsoring major tennis events: “Furthermore, the European element is a nod to Van Duuren’s pan-European focus.”
