Family Circle Cup

When: March 29-April 6 2014

Growing up, we always wanted to play tennis because of the outfits. Looking back, they’re a bit boring. Thankfully, the Williams sisters came along and spiced things up, infusing color, texture, and some sass into the tennis-whites fashion game. And now you have the chance to see what outfit Serena Williams wears — as well as some pretty kick-ass female tennis players — at the 42nd annual Family Circle Cup. Defending champ, Williams is back along with two top-10 tennis stars for the all-female tournament. The matches began on March 29, but the Family Circle Cup is really all about April 5 and 6, with the semi-finals and the final matches taking place. In case watching world-class athletes isn’t entertaining enough, there are a variety of other activities for spectators at the Cup. In addition to rotating food trucks, local favorites like Verde, Jim ‘N Nick’s, and Zeus Grill will be serving up concessions. Of course, drinks will be available in the wine and beer gardens, but the Ketel One Racquet Club will have some of the harder stuff too. Calvin Taylor, Two 3 Ways, Plane Jane, and Blue Dogs will perform live music between matches.
