Top Tennis Event Returns To Daniel Island This Saturday!

March 29, 2016

We are just days away from one of the most anticipated events each year on Daniel Island – it’s time for the Volvo Car Open, formerly know as the Family Circle Cup. The tents are up, the courts are in prime condition and some of the world’s top tennis stars are making their way to Daniel Island for a week of competition. Tournament ticket holders are eagerly awaiting a week of fun events and exciting tennis!

The tournament may have a new name, but it has a long history on Daniel Island, moving to the Family Circle Tennis Center from Hilton Head in 2000. In fact, it’s the largest and longest-running tournament in women’s tennis, and hundreds of the top players from around the world have competed on Daniel Island over the years.

The line-up for this year’s Volvo Car Open will certainly not disappoint. Sloane Stephens and Eugenie Bouchard join previous Family Circle Cup winners Jelena Jankovic, Sabine Lisicki, Samantha Stosur, Venus Williams and last year’s champion, Angelique Kerber.

Beyond the daily competition, the Volvo Car Open has a great array of events scheduled throughout the week, including daily happy hours, a fun ‘Family Weekend’ and an exciting night of championship tennis featuring legendary icons and world-renowned champions Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick, James Blake and Mardy Fish.

Tickets are available and on sale now. For a full schedule of events and competition, visit We hope to see you on-island at the Open soon!
