Winston-Salem Open debuts $3 million hospitality venue

The facility is named for prominent local physician and philanthropist Dr. Harold Pollard. He was an instrumental leader in the tennis community, volunteered many hours to tennis events in the city, and helped to facilitate the Winston-Salem Open being a successful and enjoyable event.    

The $3 million-plus Harold Pollard Center – an air-conditioned hospitality facility with places to relax with food, drink and three tiers of outdoor seating along Court No. 2. 

Mike Odom, an associate athletic director at Wake Forest, said the Pollard Center also was planned to be used as a hospitality venue for football games. The tennis center is next door to BB&T Field. The tournament had a temporary VIP facility in past years.
