About

The Ladies' Pro Racquetball Tour in cooperation with Sportsclub Fitness and Wellness, South Carolina Racquetball Players’ Association, and OB Hospitalist Group host an annual international racquetball tournament for lady professionals and amateurs.  The Sweet Caroline Open hosts the top 20 lady pro racquetball players in the world and over 100 amateurs from across the southeast in a three-day tournament.

Each year the tournament identifies a charity or organization with a worthy cause and gives back to that organization through the generosity of the tournament’s sponsors.  Causes supported by the tournament in past years include ovarian cancer research, AEDs for police officer cruisers, and combatting human trafficking.

Charitable Impacts

2020 Safe Harbor Domestic Violence Shelter

The South Carolina Racquetball Players’ Association in cooperation with Sportsclub Fitness and Wellness and OB Hospitalist Group will host the Sweet Caroline Open racquetball tournament for professionals and amateurs in January of 2020. Each year the tournament identifies a charity or organization with a worthy cause and gives back to that organization through the generosity of the tournament’s sponsors.


This year’s focus will be on battling domestic violence by supporting Safe Harbor. Safe Harbor is a private, 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence in the upstate of South Carolina.


Safe Harbor oers a number of services to the community including providing safe emergency shelters, counseling, assistance with orders of protection, and transitional housing, as well as teen dating violence education and community outreach in Greenville, Pickens, Anderson, and Oconee counties.
 

Currently, Safe Harbor has approximately 40 full-time staff, 20 part-time staff and over 300 volunteers, including our board of directors. With Safe Harbor's resources and your help, we will make a difference for victims of domestic violence and their children, providing them with safety and resources, helping them to heal, and giving them the support they need to start new lives.
