As the leading global independent bunker suppler with deep roots in Geneva, there is an appropriate synergy between the city, the tournament and Peninsula. Peninsula’s values are synonymous with Geneva and the Gonet Geneva Open.
As a hub for the marine industry, Geneva is a natural place to engage with customers and stakeholders. Switzerland itself is considered to be one of the greenest and most sustainable countries in the world, something which Peninsula is delivering within its own industry. Its updated business strategy focusses heavily on creating a more sustainable future for the marine fuel industry. As an early adopter of LNG and having already completed a number of LNG deals, one of which record breaking at the time, Peninsula is well on its way to leading this transition.
Classified as an ATP 250 tournament since 2015, under the umbrella of Geneva Trophy Promotion Sàrl, the Geneva Open is played in the unique setting of the Tennis Club of the Parc des Eaux-Vives in Geneva, offering a unique environment and conditions that make it one of the most popular tournaments among players on the European circuit. Its usual place in the calendar, the week before the Roland-Garros Grand Slam Tournament, ensures it attracts special attention from the tennis community. Recognised champions include two-time winner Stan Wawrinka (2016 and 2017) and Alexander Zverev, 2019 winner.
