Volunteer at the Winston-Salem Open
We are excited you're interested in volunteering at the 2023 Winston-Salem Open, but we are no longer accepting applications for this year's event.
We'd love to have you next year, though, so please review our various areas and see what might interest you.
Some of the benefits of volunteering include:
- credentialed access to grounds for early entry each day,
- a meal and snacks for each shift,
- volunteer uniform,
- and free tickets for pre-determined sessions during the week.
Please review the information below for brief descriptions in our various areas of service.
If you want to be as close to the action as you can get without actually playing the match, review the information on our ball person page.
Do you have a passion for helping others? If so, we need you on the Experience Team. This volunteer group will assist patrons of the event as well as fellow volunteers. At the Guest Services booth, you will answer questions about the tournament, offer directions, provide scheduling updates and help fans and friends with lost and found. Inside the Volunteer Hospitality area, you'll assist with the distribution of uniforms, credentials and meals. You will serve as the key liaison between tournament staff and volunteers.
If you’re a “behind-the-scenes” kind of person who likes to get things organized for others to enjoy, then the Winston-Salem Open needs your support in our operations department. You will help the tournament staff and operations director set each day’s activities and special events in motion, on court and off.
This volunteer position requires a minimum age of 18 and the ability to lift up to 25 pounds.
If nothing gets past you, then we need you at our two main gates, accepting tickets from guests while also being able to answer questions about the tournament and the venue.
It is impossible to understate the importance of this volunteer position. The Winston-Salem Open requires professional, alert people who can think on their feet and take direction well. You will be working in conjunction with our security company to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all Winston-Salem Open patrons.
You must be at least 20 years old and be able to withstand various weather conditions that occur throughout the week.
The Winston-Salem Open had drivers before Uber and Lyft!
Drivers will be responsible for providing transportation from airports, hotels, and the tournament site as needed. You must remain professional at all times (so no Carpool Karaoke, tempting though it may be!).
Volunteers in this area must be at least 25 years old and have a stellar driving record. The Winston-Salem Open will conduct a background check. You should have a good working knowledge of the Piedmont Triad and various routes to local airports and venues.
Do you want to see tennis action throughout the Winston-Salem Open? Our ushers rotate between the main stadium and outside courts checking tickets, directing patrons to seats, and ensuring fans maintain proper tennis etiquette.
You are also a key defender against any security threats or disruptions, so you must be mature, alert, and able to communicate effectively with our security company. Ushers must be at least 20 years old and able to stand for long periods of time if-needed.
