ABN AMRO and Fund for Special Needs Sports

There are around 1.7 million people with disabilities in the Netherlands. Playing sports is not something they can take for granted. The Fund for Special Needs Sports (Fonds Gehandicaptensport) supports non-profit sports organisations and is committed to giving everyone with a disability the chance to take part in sport close to where they live.

ABN AMRO has been a loyal 1% FairShare® partner of the Fund for Special Needs Sports for many years now. We support various sports for the disabled. As a major sponsor of field hockey in the Netherlands, we were one of the initiators of special needs hockey. And since wheelchair tennis is dear to us, we have organised the ABN AMRO World Wheelchair Tennis Tournament since 2009. The wheelchair tournament is fully integrated in the international ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament.
