Update - March 12, 2020

The Volvo Car Open has been monitoring the evolving COVID-19 pandemic over the past several weeks and working diligently with all of our partners to develop policies and procedures for the overall health of our players, fans, partners, staff and volunteers during their visit to Charleston. Unfortunately with the worldwide concern of the spread of the coronavirus, the decision to cancel the Miami Open and the travel advisory issued by the WTA Tour for players, based upon travel restrictions on Europe, we cannot move forward with the 2020 Volvo Car Open, scheduled for April 4 – 12.

We took the day to explore a variety of event scenarios, including hosting our tournament with only essential staff. However, as we are a global sporting event, this scenario is not possible. We are now offering ticket holders a full refund or credit to the next Volvo Car Open. Please click the request refund button below to request either credit for the next Volvo Car Open or a full refund. This decision has been made for the health and safety of our players, employees, volunteers, fans, partners and everyone associated with the Volvo Car Open.

We are working closely with the WTA Tour, Medical University of South Carolina and the City of Charleston to establish additional protocols to promote the health and safety of all participants and fans at our tournament. We will continue to monitor all reports and make any updates as necessary.

Following medical advice by health experts, the precautionary measures, which are taken in the interest of the health and safety of players, staff, fans and the wider tennis community, are as follows:

  • Adding hand sanitizers to all public spaces at the facility
  • Adding additional ecology personnel for constant sanitizing of all areas throughout the tournament
  • Training food and beverage personnel on-site for proper sanitization protocols
  • Providing volunteers taking tickets at entrances with gloves
  • Adding multiple new protocols for the safety of the players:
    • All ball kids will be wearing long sleeve shirts and rubber gloves
    • Players will be the only ones to handle their towels and drinks
    • Hand sanitizers will be placed on court and in all player spaces
  • Posting public health education information at all facilities
