Indian Wells Masters 2022

7 Mar 2022 - 20 Mar 2022

About


The Indian Wells Masters, formally known as the BNP Paribas Open, is one of the biggest tournaments on the tennis calendar aside from the four Majors. The event has always attracted some of the biggest names on the tour and has delivered some mouth watering clashes. It’s classified as an ATP Masters 1000 and a WTA 1000 event respectively. It’s also one of the few joint ATP and WTA events on the tour. The tournament was founded in 1974 and quickly became one of the biggest attractions on the tennis circuit. The current owner of the tournament is Larry Ellison, the co-founder of the technology giant Oracle. Former World No. Tommy Haas is the current tournament director.


Venue and Dates


The first couple of editions of the tournament were hosted in Arizona. Since 1976, the tournament has been held in California. Even within the Golden State, the tournament moved around for a bit in the beginning. It was held in Rancho Mirage from 1976-80 and in La Quinta from 1981-86. Since 1987, the tournament has been held in Indian Wells. The venue is the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, which was built in 2000. There are 29 tennis courts in the complex. The main stadium has the capacity to host 16,000 spectators and is the second largest tennis specific stadium in the world. Stadium 2 has a capacity of 8,000. 


It’s one of the few tournaments other than the Grand Slams where the main draw proceedings extend beyond a week. The 2022 edition of the tournament is set to take place from March 7-20, 2022.
