The Western & Southern Open is looking for volunteers to assist within the areas of access scanning, transportation drivers, ushers and marshals.

Shifts are still available every day of the tournament, which is Aug. 13-21 at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason.

Because of the large team of volunteers, the Western & Southern Open is able to make charitable donations to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, UC Barrett Cancer Center and Tennis for Inner City Youth totaling $8.7 million.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to receive a service letter documenting how many hours they worked.

Perks of being a volunteer include free tickets, tournament apparel, free parking and access to the Volunteer Lounge, which includes complimentary snacks and refreshments.
