- 2017 VolleyGirls Application Deadline Nov 11, 2016
For the past 18 years, the Delray Beach Open has seen many stars come through its pearly, white gates at the Delray Beach Stadium and Tennis Center. In 2017, the event is going to amp it up even more, hosting the world’s only ten-day ‘Super Event’ featuring tennis champions past and present—exploding into a combined professional men’s ATP World Tour and ATP Champions Tour event, and running simultaneously over the course of February 17 – 26, 2017.
And yet, even tennis’ most-revered legends could not charmingly court the Delray Beach Open by grounds like its charismatic promotional team—the VolleyGirls. The Delray Beach Open’s VolleyGirls are the ambassadors and spokespersons of the event—the iconic figurines of the tournament both on-site at the sponsors’ private parties, PR engagements with players on-air in TV and radio, as well as appearances in the Delray Beach community and Palm Beach County.
The VolleyGirls must be at least 18 years of age, sporty, electric, professional, engaging and charming. The ‘Girls’ colorfully diverse backgrounds appropriately adorn the tournament, as some past and current ‘Girls’ hail from Colombia, Brazil, Morocco, Germany, Romania, Yugoslavia, and are home to South Florida’s playgrounds in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
“When we started the VolleyGirl campaign in 2007, we thought it would be popular, but never realized the extent to which these girls became the iconic figures of the event they did,” said John Butler, Executive Director. “Now they’ve received national recognition, endorsement deals with incredible fashion boutiques, fitness and spa memberships…It’s all just exploded in such a fantastic way. They’ve become an ideal representation of the event.”
As one of 13 ATP World Tour events in North America and one of 63 ATP World Tour events in the world, the VolleyGirls are part of a unique and exclusive team promoting something much greater than a nine day event. Rather, the ‘Girls’ are the iconic faces and advocators of a beautiful image, and are both the artiste and the silhouette of an extraordinary ideas.
When choosing a team, we look for: simply positive, energetic, talented, personable and professional representatives of the tournament faces of the community and iconic components to the sport itself.
EXPECTATIONS: In 2017, we are seeking competitive dancers with a background and/or interest in hospitality and public relations. We encourage all creative energies who desire to elicit cheer and generate positive feedback to apply and challenge her inner VolleyGirl alter ego.
INTERVIEW PROCESS: After reviewing your online application, you may be selected for an interview (in-person or phone) at our office in Delray Beach (30 NW 1st Avenue, Delray Beach, FL 33444). The interview process will end Nov 11.
