If you are hard-working, enthusiastic and love tennis, we've got an amazing opportunity for you! Get behind the scenes with some of the best women's tennis players in the world for a once-in-a-lifetime experience as a Connecticut Open Volunteer!  

The defending champion, as well as an 18-time Grand Slam singles champion, will be among the top attractions at the Connecticut Open this summer.  Agnieszka Radwanska will return to defend her 2016 title, while Martina Navratilova will also be on-hand to help celebrate 20 years of women’s tennis in New Haven.  

We are excited to welcome you back to our team and together we look forward to providing you the opportunity to serve some of the best tennis players in the world and the opportunity to get behind the scenes at one of the area's signature event all while giving back to your community.  
The Connecticut Open is committed to making a difference in the communities we live in by supporting women's, youth and military causes.  But we can't do it alone, so don't wait any longer, sign up today and have a blast doing good for your community.
