Top 10 Reasons to Go to the Connecticut Open

1. Accessible world-class tennis action.
The Connecticut Open presented by United Technologies, is a premier WTA tennis tournament and warm-up for the USOpen. It’s an amazing chance to see the stars up-close… Some of the greats who played in 2014 were World No. 3 Simona Halep, World No. 2 Petra Kvitova, and World No. 5 Caroline Wozniacki. This year Petra Kvitova returns and Rising Star Madison Keys joins in along with many others!

I don’t know about you, but my game would improve watching any of the women in the top 1000, never mind the top 20, 10 or 5.


3. You’ll be watching at the pristine Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale.
Everything is well maintained, with easy parking and comfortable walking distance.

It’s affordable and there are now tickets available.
