Volvo Car Open

A WTA Premier Event, the Volvo Car Open (a Family Circle Event) features some of the biggest names in professional women's tennis. The tournament is typically held during the first week of April, in historic Charleston, SC. In 1973, Family Circle became the first women's magazine to fully underwrite a professional sporting event, helping to catapult women's tennis into a worldwide sport. Over the years, the Volvo Car Open has achieved many more "firsts": The Family Circle Cup was the first tournament to offer $100,000 in prize money. Before women played for significantly less prize money than men. The prize money today reaches $1,000,000, exceeding some of the richest purses in men's sports. The Family Circle Cup was also the first women's tournament to be broadcast on national television. It has also been a launching pad for many world-class players, including Steffi Graf, Jennifer Capriati and Gabriela Sabatini, all of whom made career-setting first impressions at the tournament. And finally, since 1973, the Family Circle is the longest-running title sponsor of all professional tennis tournaments. Don't miss this exciting event and the 32-acre world-class facility it calls home.
