Daniel Island South Carolina, just outside of Charleston is a premier tennis destination with a premier southern city destination next door. Named after its former inhabitant, the colonial governor of the Carolinas, Robert Daniell, the island is located between the Cooper and Wando Rivers. The Family Circle Tennis Center is a public tennis facility and home to the Volvo Car Open, held in March – April every year.
This award-winning public facility is first class in every sense of the word. With 20 championship tennis courts (14 clay, 6 hard and all courts lighted for night play), the Tennis Center is a 32-acre state of the art facility highlighted by the 10,200 seat Family Circle Stadium. A unique 10,000 square foot Clubhouse serves as the hub of activity on a year-round basis. The first level of the Clubhouse features the Tennis Center Pro Shop. The Pro Shop offers a multitude of amenities for club members and patrons, including tennis clothing, luxury locker room facilities, rackets, accessories and professional stringing services. The clubhouse also serves as the corporate headquarters for the Volvo Car Open. Overlooking the majestic Althea Gibson Club Court and a stone’s throw from the water, the Clubhouse mirrors the traditional, architectural charm synonymous with the South.
