Volvo Car Open Goal to Grow Game of Tennis
The Volvo Car Open tennis tournament has made its 2015 mission to grow the game of tennis, starting with its junior fans. In partnership with SunTrust, kids 15 and under will receive free admission all week to the Volvo Car Open, April 4 – 12, 2015, in Charleston, SC on Daniel Island. In addition every junior that takes advantage of the free ticket will be provided one free training day from MWTennis during the year at the Family Circle Tennis Center. The training sessions will include on-court match play, technique and fitness training.
“It’s important for our tournament to create a program to inspire juniors to get out and play the game of tennis, and to expand that relationship beyond the nine days of the tournament,” said Bob Moran, Volvo Car Open Tournament Director. “We want the Volvo Car Open and the Family Circle Tennis Center to become a vehicle for kids to fall in love with the sport all yearlong. SunTrust continues to be a fantastic partner to the Volvo Car Open and the Charleston community. This gesture shows how committed they are to making a difference.”
“At SunTrust, we are proud of our partnership with the Volvo Car Open for eight years,” said Mark Lattanzio, SunTrust’s Charleston Region President. “This youth outreach initiative to expand tennis participation in the Lowcountry is important as a way to help encourage the health and well-being of the future generations of our community. Not only will the junior players have a chance to enjoy and learn about tennis at the tournament, but the financial support to them is impactful.”
Free junior tickets can be redeemed via www.VolvoCarOpen.com or at the Box Office. To sign-up for a free lesson with MWTennis, visit the academy’s booth on-site during the tournament.
