About the Tournament
The McLeod for Health Florence Open, a USTA Pro Circuit Women’s Tournament to benefit Susan G. Komen South Carolina will be held at the Dr. Eddie Floyd Florence Tennis Center October 14 – 21, 2018. Some of the best young professionals in the world will compete for ranking points and a $25,000 purse. Former winners and finalist include the 2013 champion and Top 100 player Anna Tatishvilli, 2013 finalist and Top 50 player Madison Brengle, former world number 1 junior CiCi Bellis (pictured bellow) and 2015 champion and top 100 player Grace Min. The 2016 Tournament was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew but Florence hosted a great event in 2017. The 2017 singles champion was USA player, Taylor Townsend.
Florence was selected to host this event because of its world-class courts, its strong volunteer base, and the generosity of its sponsors. This seven-day tournament puts us on the world tennis map and generates significant tourism revenues for our community. The tournament features a 64 qualifying draw leading to a 32 size main draw, a pro-am event, and a Community Day with fun, food, and games for adults and children.
Net Proceeds from the tournament will go to the Susan G. Komen South Carolina Foundation to help fight breast cancer. Tax-deductible sponsorships are available at all levels and private donations are welcome.
