On behalf of the entire Tennis Canada organization, the National Bank Open media relations department thanks you for your interest in covering our tournament. We appreciate your valued coverage and support of this Canadian event. National Bank Open presented by Rogers is owned and operated by Tennis Canada, and as a non-profit organization, all net surplus is directed towards tennis development.
The women will make their return to Montreal from August 7-15, 2021. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you next summer.
Tennis Canada is now inviting media to submit their applications for Virtual Media Accreditation for the 2021 National Bank Open presented by Rogers. Because of the health and safety protocols enforced by the Canadian government and the ATP and WTA Tours due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, general media will not be allowed onsite at this year’s events.
All application requests are, therefore, for access to a Virtual Media Centre through which media may cover the tournaments remotely. The tournaments, as well as the ATP and WTA Tours will be enforcing their usual standards during the accreditation process. Therefore, priority will be given to larger international and national media outlets. The deadline for submitting Virtual Media Accreditation Applications is Friday July 16, 2021.

Photographers can also submit applications for the 2021 National Bank Open. However, as a result of the health and safety protocols enforced by the Canadian government due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, only a select number of photographers will be permitted to be onsite at the tournaments this year.
Given the restrictions in place permit fewer photographers to be onsite, priority will be given to larger media outlets. Photographers must apply for accreditation on the website of the specific tournament they wish to cover – either Toronto or Montreal. The deadline for submitting Photographer Accreditation Applications is Friday July 16, 2021.
