EVENT: Connecticut Open presented by United Technologies is now owned by the State of Connecticut and is newly minted as a not-for-profit 501 c3 charitable organization.  However, the event has always existed to give back to the community, and has always been much more than just a tennis tournament; it is a leading example of leveraging a large-scale international sporting event to generate $26 million in regional impact and to build community pride, spirit and engagement, especially among youth.  The women's-only WTA event is part of the Emirates Airline US Open Series and will be held August 15-23, 2014 at the Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale.  The Connecticut Open is prominently featured domestically on ESPN2 and also broadcast around the world.
