Indian Wells Tennis Garden will welcome the Golden State Athletic Conference to its grounds in 2013 as host of the GSAC Men's and Women's Tennis Championship. Indian Wells is currently home to the BNP Paribas Open. It will be the first time the GSAC has held a season-ending tournament at a neutral site.
For the sixth straight year, the BNP Paribas Open, the largest ATP World Tour and WTA combined event, has broken its attendance record. The 2012 event welcomed 370,408 fans to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden for two weeks of world-class tennis.
In addition to breaking overall attendance records, the tournament also set a day session attendance record on Sunday, March 11 with more than 24,300 fans coming to the event. The staggering attendance figures solidify the BNP Paribas Open's place as the most-attended ATP World Tour and WTA combined event in the world.
