US Open Courtside Boxes
Courtside boxes (or seats) get you so close to the action that you can often hear the players talking on the court. They include sections 1-67 and the rows on the side start with row AA, then go from row A to row G with each letter having two rows because they are a box. There are fewer rows behind the court, which generally start with row E. A typical Courtside box includes 4 seats in-front and 4 seats behind those (4+4), but some come with 3+3 or other setups. A Courtside box can be purchased as a whole box or individual tickets within a box. It is commonplace, when you purchase a pair of 4-seats, to have one person sitting behind due to the 3+3 configuration of the box. The term “box” is just a geographic location in the stadium that is contained by a railing; it is not a luxury box. Courtside seats are some of the most desirable seats at Arthur Ashe Stadium and where the celebrities in attendance will be sitting.
US Open Loge Boxes
Loge boxes (or seats) are one level up from the Courtside seats and provide a nice view of the tennis action. They include sections 101-228 and rows typically run from A to G with each have two rows because they are a box. The Loge boxes are generally setup as a 3+3, and can be purchased as a group or individual seats. When you purchase a pair or 4-seats it is customary to have one person sitting behind due to the 3+3 configuration of the box. The “box” is akin a field box seat in baseball and is not a luxury box. The first couple of rows in the Loge boxes offer the best view in this area and are always in high demand.
US Open Promenade
The top-level at Arthur Ashe Stadium is the Promenade, which includes sections 301 to 340 and up to 25 rows per section. The Promenade offers a clear view of the tennis and allows you to still feel the electricity of a US Open tennis match. Dress warmly for evening sessions, as it can be chilly in the high rows of the Promenade.
US Open Luxury Suites
There are luxury suites available for certain US Open matches, contact TicketCity for more details.

US Open Tennis Event Guide

The early sessions are packed with action, particularly the evening sessions. The later sessions feature matchups of the best players in the tournament. The Semifinal sessions are 24 (Women’s) and 24 (Men’s). Session 25 includes the Women’s Final and Men’s Doubles Final. Session 26 is the Men’s Final.

How do “Grounds Admission” tickets differ from regular US Open tickets?
Grounds Admission tickets are general admission tickets available for each of the first eight (8) Day sessions at the US Open. Grounds Admission passes provide ticket holders access to watch the matches on the courts surrounding the main stadiums, and to sit in a special general admission section at Louis Armstrong Stadium if space is available. Grounds Admission passes DO NOT provide entry to Arthur Ashe Stadium, where the top matches are played. Regular US Open tickets are required to have a reserved seat in Arthur Ashe Stadium or Louis Armstrong Stadium.
What is TicketCity’s Rain-Out Policy at the US Open tennis tournament?
If any of sessions 1 through 22 at the US Open are officially determined to be “rained-out” by the USTA, then an in-store credit will be issued for the face value of the tickets, unless the tickets were purchased for less than face value, in which case an in-store credit for the purchase price of the tickets will be issued. The official determination of rain-out or cancelled session is made by the USTA.
