US Open

US Open, Flushing: Address, Phone Number, US Open Reviews: 4.5/5

About
Each year in the week before and after Labor Day, all eyes in the tennis world are on the USA for the prestigious US Open tournament. The last of the four major international events in professional tennis, the stakes are high, particularly if any home court players or teams are closing in on a 'Grand Slam' win at all four events. Ticket prices can run up into the thousands for the most coveted seats, but for a die-hard fan it's worth it for the chance to see the top athletes in the sport, up close.

Love tennis? Got to go here
Aug 2019
If you love Tennis, US Open is one Grand Slam you have to visit.
Compared to other Grand Slams, this one is more easy on the pocket.
It is well connected and has everything on the grounds. The food, the drinks and the atmosphere. Perfect.

The stadium is also amazing. The seating should be chosen well else you will not enjoy the matches. Would suggest not to take sides or behind the player seats. Take seats on the corner, and mid way in height. They should be around $125

Must do:
If over 21, do try their US Open Special drink (Honey Deuce: raspberry drink with vodka)
Do get souvenirs from their main store below Billy Jean King Stadium
Buy Tickets for Arthur Ashe Stadium, but do venture out to other stadiums between matches. You might just see some amazing upcoming stars.
Be there early as security is tight. You would not want to miss a match.

Stay in NY City, and take the weekly pass for the Metro. Best way to travel. Keep an Umbrella handy.
Cameras allowed, but not big lens.

Great experience and well run
Aug 2019
The US Open is very well run with plenty of bathrooms located around the stadium and food areas. Plenty of seating too. The food is expensive which is to be expected and they do allow one to bring in your own food. An example would be the
Curry Chicken (at Arthur Ash stadium) and the Lamb curry which was $16 with 2 pieces of lamb.

Arthur Ashe Stadium area 329 and 330 and surrounding area are in the shade at noon. This is good to know so that you aren't baking in the sun, nor squinting at the players.

Bring your own water bottle for the hydration station. There are not many and the lines are long to fill up your water bottles.

Doesn't get much better!
Aug 2019
I am 50 years old, have been playing tennis since I was 4, and have worked with tennis (mainly collegiate) for the past 30 years. But I had never been to the US Open until this year. And I was not disappointed.

It was the second major I had been to (attended Wimbledon in 2008) and both certainly have their pluses. Wimbledon has the tradition-rich history, the grass and the English reverence. The US Open has Americana, hard courts, night matches and excitement.

Our entire experience was outstanding - from the process of getting out to the grounds each day from Manhattan, to entering the facility, the courteous staff and certainly...the tennis. Hope it doesn't turn out to be our only trip but we certainly feel like we checked off a major bucket list item with our visit this year. Every tennis fan should see it at least once in their lifetime!

Fantastic!!!!
Aug 2019
Everybody was happy in the Billy Jean King Center; great facilities; the 3 Stadiums are expectacular; the small courts let You watch really close all the players. The practice courts also let you get closer to all the players, coaches and even get the chance to get pictures with them and autographs. Great place not only for tenis fans as all people from all ages have amazing time here.

Amazing
Aug 2019
The week before the tournament offers free admission during the qualifications. In addition to seeing excellent games there are top players who train and you can see them on the sideline.

Love, love!
Aug 2019
I have been to many tennis tournaments around the world and this is probably one of my favourite venues for great tennis. Not only do you get to see great tennis the grounds are beautiful and you can see many tennis matches on the various tennis court inside and outside. The facilities are amazing and clean with knowledgeable staff. Love it!

I WAS HARASSED BY SECURITY
Sep 2019
I am 70 years old. I've been coming to US open for at least 30 years.I go to their website to see what is allowed into the US Open Tennis Center. Check it out thoroughly (3 times this year)for what type of bag you can bring in and size of bag. I adhere to rules carefully because I don't want trouble. I want to enjoy myself. After I get thru security the security manager calls me out and tells me I can't go in with my bag. I ask him why? He says your bag is not permitted. I tell him what US OPEN website said and he says 'i don't care". Does not allow me into us open with my bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I complain and they say "we sorry" we ruin your day. My 8 year old grandson is really uspet. Felt very unsafe and threatened.

plan for 2020 us open
Aug 2019
I have been attending the us open before arthur ashe stadium was built. I moved from NY in 2006 and returned this year.

The event and venue have been greatly improved since my last visit in 2005.

I will give you some pros and cons and then some tips to hopefully improve your visit.

Pro's- A variety of dining choices await you. Restrooms are plentiful, stay at a hotel close to the #7 subway if from out of town.

Con's- food prices are a bit high, shade may be hard to find.

Tips- if coming from out of town get seats in louis armstrong since it has a roof and you will see tennis in the rain. sections 1 to 7 have shade almost all day with from section 8 on getting shade a day moves on. note the upper bowl of this stadium is free on first come basis for day pass holders.

if you are a senior the subway is 1/2 price or 2.75 for a round trip. however, you can only purchase one round trip on the day of use and have to go to a manned ticket booth with photo id.

prices- 20oz water is 7.50. two crab cake sliders were 31. 12 0z beer $12. a 12 oz vodka drink was 18( cup is your to keep.)

signs for restrooms are hard to spot. some restrooms are in lois armstrong ,some by court 17 and some by grandstand.

we go the first 4 to 5 days since all courts are in action and on a day pass you can watch tennis to late in the evening.

take the #7 rather than driving. avoid the #6 subway- no ac and body to body.

plan on sweating and just know everyone else is doing the same.

we had a great time. walked over 6 miles a day. saw a ton of matches.

we will return
