FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, is hosting a digital tennis tournament from Monday May 9 to Friday May 13, 2016 at the La Défense Esplanade, France, for the French Open. This is an opportunity to challenge colleagues or friends before the two-week international grand slam!

When a Digi-tennis match begins, the 64 multicolored LED lights and sensors of the Digi-tennis wall turn on and the player is in a time crunch to use fronthand and backhand shots to turn them off, by targeting them with special tennis ball and racket. The person who has the highest score of the day will win two tickets to one of the Roland Garros games. The second best player will win Roland Garros-branded goodies (a pen, a notebook, a USB key and a towel) and the other four best players of the day will win a towel and a cleanup kit. Others can try their luck at a quiz to test their knowledge of tennis and FedEx.

An official French Open partner for 14 years and ATP[1] partner for 6, FedEx shares the same core values as tennis: speed, precision, anticipation and service. FedEx fully embraces the philosophy of preparation, commitment and performance excellence that drives success in sports and tennis in particular.
