Military Causes

The Connecticut Open’s mission is to leverage the excitement of world-class women’s tennis to benefit the community and maximize support for women’s, youth and military causes in Connecticut.  




Veterans and Active Duty Military Members - Military Appreciation Day, a longtime CT Open tradition, has honored our military during tournament week with complimentary tickets and other programs. In 2017:

  • Hillhouse High School JROTC Color Guard presented the colors on Military Appreciation Day.
  • Bank of America, CT Open players, celebrities and dignitaries expressed gratitude with the #troopthanks social media campaign to benefit Wounded Warrior Project.
  • Knights of Columbus provided American flags to all fans.
