Volvo Car Open Partners with SunTrust to Offer Juniors, 15 and Under, Free Tickets

The Volvo Car Open tennis tournament has continued its 2015 mission to grow the game of tennis. For the second year in a row, the WTA Premier event has partnered with SunTrust to offer juniors, 15 and under, free admission all week into the Volvo Car Open, April 2 – 10, 2016, in Charleston, SC on Daniel Island.

As an added bonus, every junior who receives complimentary tickets to attend the tournament is eligible for a free clinic with MWTennis Academy, an instructional tennis organization based out of the Family Circle Tennis Center. Redemption for the free clinic will be located at the SunTrust booth in the fan area. Kids who sign up for the free clinic Tuesday through Sunday will receive a complimentary deck of Shine Bright Kids Financially Bright Conversation Cards from SunTrust, limited while supplies last.

“We saw great success last year when we initially partnered with SunTrust to offer juniors unparalleled access to our tournament,” said Bob Moran, Volvo Car Open Tournament Director. “It’s our collective goal to inspire the next generation of tennis players and fans, and by giving children the opportunity to be exposed to an international, world-renowned tennis event, we feel that our nine-day tournament can become the catalyst for a lifelong love affair with the sport. None of this would be possible without SunTrust’s commitment to grow the game of tennis.”

“At SunTrust, we’re proud to celebrate our 10th year serving our clients in the Charleston region, and the 9th year of our partnership with this world-class tennis event,” said Mark Lattanzio, SunTrust Region President. “We’re pleased to be a part of this community and event, and through the onUp movement, help our clients and neighbors take steps toward financial confidence.”

SunTrust will also sponsor the City of Charleston’s Tennis in the City event, an annual one-day inner-city youth tennis clinic held at the Jack Adams Tennis Center in downtown Charleston during the Volvo Car Open. Since its inception in 2003, this event has made a profound impact on thousands of local, Charleston children. This occasion brings WTA tennis players, tennis pros, as well as high school and college teams together to introduce the game of tennis to local children, in turn helping them learn basics of the game in an exciting environment.

Complimentary junior tickets can be redeemed via, by calling 800.677.2293 or via the Box Office, located at 161 Seven Farms Drive Charleston, SC 29492. To sign-up for a free lesson with MWTennis Academy, visit the SunTrust booth on-site during the tournament, located on Sponsor Row.
