smartTrade signed a partnership with the French Tennis Federation by supporting the Provence Tennis League association. This association is invested in teaching, training, individual competition, and regional championships. This partnership has for aim to promote, organize and develop tennis and padel in Provence.
We support tennis every year through our “Open du Pays d’Aix” partnership. The “Open du Pays d’Aix” is a freely accessible tournament, which intends to endorse young and promising tennis stars of tomorrow. This is a reflection of our engagement to promote the benefits of sports while simultaneously emphasising our values, namely: agility, performance, drive and passion.
We launched the “smartTrade Full Ace Challenge” during which smartTrade contributes to the challenge pot for every performed Ace at the “Open du Pays d’Aix”. At the end of the tournament, the total amount collected goes to “La chaîne de l’espoir”, a humanitarian charity aimed at enabling children in developing countries to have access to medical care and education.
We are also committed to the empowerment of women and attempt to do so by sponsoring “The Open Féminin de Marseille”, a key tournament for upcoming female tennis players. Subsequently, they gain visibility and recognition, whilst networking with many other talented women. This Open is the only professional sporting event in Marseille which is entirely dedicated to women in the creation of opportunities aimed at their development and growth.
We launched during the Open Feminin de Marseille the 'smartTrade Challenge', for every winning return performed smartTrade will make a donation to the amazing charity ‘Sourire à la Vie’. This charity is dedicated to children with cancer and aims at helping them to go through the hardships of the disease as smoothly as possible while enabling them to live the life a child deserves. A life made of games, enjoyment, dreams and fulfillment. The donations from tournaments will support the funding of sporting therapies.
smartTrade renews its commitment as environmentally friendly company through the implementation of its new project with Sociabble and Tree-Nation. Indeed, since July 2019, smartTrade and its employees are supporting various reforestation projects around the world, like in Burkina Faso and Brazil, that fight desertification and soil depletion while helping the conservation of biodiversity.
smartTrade support Folding@Home and its research on Covid-19. Folding@Home is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics behind many diseases and it aims to help scientists develop new therapies. We have dedicated specific hardware to run simulations to help understand better the virus and, ultimately, to find a viable treatment.
