Charities and Causes

The ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament has adopted three different charitable activities which help disabled athletes, children in deprived areas and children with life threatening diseases.

The ‘Fonds Gehandicaptensport’ foundation supports sports for people with a physical disability in The Netherlands. The Richard Krajicek Foundation makes sports available to children living in deprived areas of the country. ‘Doe een Wens’, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, helps fulfill the dreams of very sick children by arranging a visit to the tournament.

Highlights

The ‘Fonds Gehandicaptensport’ and ATP World Tour 500 event have come together to host the ABN AMRO World Wheelchair Tennis Tournament since 2009, giving top players in international wheelchair tennis an opportunity to compete during the same week and on the same stage as the ATP World Tour pros. 

To support the Richard Krajicek Foundation, Jacco Eltingh and Paul Haarhuis made a one-off return in 2010 to raise funds. Their prize-money from the tournament and money they generated by attracting companies to support their initiative was donated to a playground close to Ahoy, the venue of the tournament.
