The success of the Citi Open is greatly influenced by the time and effort put forth from our tremendous volunteers. Without their commitment and dedication, this event would not be possible. Our 500+ volunteers are the pulse of this tournament and an extension of our full-time staff members. Every individual has a unique role in making this a great experience for our fans, players and guests. We would love for you to join our team and be a part of Washington’s Summer Tennis Tradition.
