Scroll on to discover 7 reasons why you can’t miss the Volvo Car Open, then join us this April in Charleston!

2. You’ll find fun for the whole family. Throughout the week, fans will be entertained with a variety of events. Grab the kids and join in the fun of Family Weekend (imagine magicians, trampolines and live dance performances). Free general admission tickets are offered all week to kids ages 15 and under!

3. It’s the perfect excuse for a Girlfriend Getaway. Traveling to Charleston with the gals? Cheer on world-class women on the court while enjoying a day of shopping and wine and cheese tastings.

4. You’ll see the stars! Keep an eye out for Venus Williams, who will be joining World No. 7 Madison Keys, Olympic Gold Medalist Monica Puig and former World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in the player field.

5. Two words: PowerShares Series. This one-night only competitive tennis circuit will showcase world-renowned champions including Jim Courier, John McEnroe, Andy Roddick and Mark Philippoussis.

6. Adventure awaits! From an 8 AM walk on the beach to an 8 PM reservation to sip Southern spirits, you’ll have endless opportunities to explore all that the Lowcountry has to offer.

7. Charleston tastes as good as it looks. Worked up an appetite from all of the excitement? From finger-licking good buttermilk fried chicken to fresh-from-the-dock soft-shell crab, we know just how to satisfy your taste buds (and fuel you up for another match!).
