The FFT has thrown itself into esport by organising the Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas, the biggest international eTennis competition, since 2018.

After a very successful 2022 edition, the sixth edition of Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas - The world's largest eTennis event- promises to be exciting!

Just like last year, this great competition will be fought out on Wildlife Studios’ Tennis Clash, the most popular free mobile tennis game in the world, one that has already been downloaded by 120 million people.

The emblematic Philippe-Chatrier court has been recreated for all of the tournament’s matches. Participants will see their player dressed in the official Roland-Garros 2023 outfit and will have the option of buying Roland-Garros racquet strings to improve their performance.

This year’s event will see eight finalists compete in the Grand Final at Roland-Garros itself on Friday, May 26. Seven of the eight places at the final will be awarded to players coming from different qualifying events. These events will enable four players to join William Foster – reigning champion and winner of the 2023 Tennis Clash Australian Open virtual tournament – and three other finalists from the qualifying tournaments run by Women in Games, Handigamers and the Twitch community.

In fact, in 2023, the Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas will become the most inclusive eSport competition in the world by extending its partnership with Women in Games – an international organisation striving for parity in the gaming industry – and by launching a new collaboration with Handigamers, a French association helping people with disabilities live out their passion for video games.

A full breakdown on how the eight finalist spots will been determined is as follows:

●            1 slot for the 2023 Australian Open Tennis Clash winner William Foster

●           4 slots for the three open qualifiers, Open Qualifier #1 (winner) February 23 to 27, Open Qualifier #2 (winner) March 23 to 27 & Open Qualifier #3 (winner and runner-up) April 20 to 24

●            1 slot for the Women in Games closed qualifier

●            1 slot for the Handigamers closed qualifier

●            1 slot for the “Twitch Community Clash” closed qualifier

The tournament, which is run by the French Tennis Federation and sponsored by BNP Paribas as the presenting partner and Renault as the official partner, features a prize money of €5,000 that will be shared between the winner and the runner-up. In addition to the claim to fame and a spot in the final, participants in the three Open qualifiers will have the chance to win tickets for the 2023 Roland-Garros tennis tournament.

The eight finalists will also take part in an eSport workshop prior to the big event so that they can be ready to give their all at Roland-Garros in front of thousands of viewers on Twitch. Rivenzi – a true sport reference streamer on the platform – will once again host the competition with LittleBigWhale and Gilles Simon, special guest of this 2023 edition.
