History

The VanOpen, currently sponsored as Odlum Brown VanOpen, is a professional tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts. It is currently part of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Challenger Tour as a 100 event, and of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) Women's Circuit as a 100K event. It is held in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It was hosted continuously from 2002 to 2015, but returned in 2017 after a one-year hiatus.

The inaugural Odlum Brown VanOpen took place in the summer of 2002, in the Jericho Tennis Club, before it eventually moved to Hollyburn Country Club, in West Vancouver, for the 2005 edition. Started as a $25,000 ITF Women's Circuit event, the Van Open saw the victory of eventual World No. 1 Maria Sharapova over Laura Granville in 2002, and of then-Junior World No. 1 and French Open girls' singles champion Anna-Lena Grönefeld in 2003. The following year, Tennis Canada and Tennis BC (tennis' governing body in British Columbia) joined to bring the event to the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Tour as a $110,000 Tier V event. Czech qualifier, and eventual top ten member Nicole Vaidišová won the singles final over 2002 runner-up Laura Granville, becoming, as World No. 180, the lowest-ranked player to win a tour title during the 2004 WTA Tour season, and at 15 years, 3 months, and 23 days, the sixth youngest player to win a professional title in tour history. While the women's event returned to its $25,000 ITF Circuit format in 2005, "to help develop some of the world's best Canadian junior girls", a $100,000 men's Challenger event was added to the tournament, with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Tour joining Tennis Canada, Tennis BC and the ITF in the organisation of the Open. Israeli Dudi Sela won the inaugural men's singles event over Australian Paul Baccanello in straight sets, and American Ansley Cargill won the first of her two women's singles titles (2005, 2006). The VanOpen continued to grow in the following editions, with the ITF event's prize money moving up to $50,000 in 2007, $75,000 in 2009 and $100,000 in 2011.
