Barcelona Open Trofeo Conde de Godó - Catalonia news

The Barcelona Open, Trofeo Conde de Godó, also known as “Godó” or Barcelona Open Banco Sabadell, has become one of the most prestigious sport events of the city. This competition, celebrated yearly in April at the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona on clay courts, is much more than a sport event, it is a social event.

In 1953, on the occasion of the inauguration of the new headquarters of the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona in Pedralbes district, Carlos Godó Valls, Count of Godó, decided to establish a new competition. Since 1968, the tournament has been considered as the International Championships of Spain. Currently, the Open awards a million dollars in prizes.


The Trophy Conde de Godó was designed in 1953 by jewelers Soler Cabot. It is made of silver and weighs thirteen kilograms; its base is of American oak. On 2000 the trophy was totally restored by jewelers J.Roca, increasing the base size to engrave the complete list of champions. The trophy consists of a great cup with a miniature tennis player at the top.
