DANIEL ISLAND, S.C. – The Volvo Car Open tennis tournament has continued its mission to grow the game of tennis. For the third 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 1 – 9, 2017, in Charleston, SC on Daniel Island.
“We want the name Volvo Car Open to be synonymous with growing the game of tennis,” said Bob Moran, Volvo Car Open Tournament Director. “We value our partnership with SunTrust to offer juniors unparalleled and complimentary access to our tournament. We hope to touch the lives of thousands of youth and inspire the next generation of tennis players and fans. This is possible because of SunTrust’s commitment to our tournament. Through this program, together we’ve already provided nearly 20,000 youth access to an international, world-renowned tennis tournament.”
“This is our 10th year supporting the community through our partnership with this world-class event, and we are incredibly proud to be able to inspire the next generation to reach for their dreams,” said Mark Lattanzio, SunTrust Region President. “It’s how we live our purpose to Light the Way to Financial Well-being for our clients and communities. And it helps us share the onUp movement to start a conversation about how financial confidence can put them on the right track to achieve their dreams.”
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.
