Thank you for your interest in the 2023 Credit One Charleston Open!
Tournament Dates are April 1-9, 2023
As a Ball Crew member, you are afforded the opportunity to be on-court with the superstars of tennis! We recruit more than 80 adults and juniors for the Ball Crew, offering access to matches and players. You must be at least 11 years old if you play tennis or 12 years old if you do not have ample tennis experience.
The Ball Crew Volunteers are a very important part of the Credit One Charleston Open. Players and officials rely on the Ball Crew to keep the flow of the match going. Whether you’re a “rookie” or a “veteran,” all Ball Crew Volunteers must go through rigorous training and practice to be the very best when matches begin!
We strongly suggest all Ball Crew members sign-up for our text message system. This will alert you to information and any last-minute changes. In the registration process simply click the box “Yes, I would like to receive text message regarding this event”. Once signed-up you’ll receive a text message with important information regarding rain related issues.
