US Open Tennis at Arthur Ashe Stadium Address: 124-02 Roosevelt Ave, Flushing, New York, 11368
There are 22 tennis courts at the USTA National Tennis Center, but the primary courts for the US Open tournament are Arthur Ashe Stadium and Louis Armstrong Stadium. The main court is located inside Arthur Ashe Stadium, which seats approximately 22,500 tennis fans. The tournament is played on a hard court surface and there is retractable roof so the rain factor can be prevented. Please read TicketCity's Rain-Out Policy and Rain-Out Protection for the other venues at the UTSA National Tennis Center that do not have a retractable roof. The US Open tennis tournament includes 26 sessions and each US Open session requires a separate ticket. TicketCity is one of the best sources for US Open tennis tournament tickets.
Arthur Ashe Stadium 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.
Arthur Ashe Stadium Loge Level
Loge level seats are one level up from the Courtside seats and provide a nice view of the tennis action. They include sections 101-136 with each section containing rows A-N.
Arthur Ashe Stadium 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.
Arthur Ashe Stadium Luxury Suites
There are luxury suites available for certain US Open tennis matches, contact TicketCity for more details.
What are the best sessions to attend at the US Open tennis tournament?
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 21 (Women’s) and 22 (Men’s). Session 23 includes the Women’s Final and Men’s Doubles Final. Session 24 is the Men’s Final. Day sessions start at 11AM, so they can often squeeze in more tennis action, while the evening sessions are often earmarked for the marquee matches.
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. 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.
Where will 2017 US Open matches be played during the construction of the new Louis Armstrong Stadium?
In 2016, the former Louis Armstrong Stadium at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center was demolished to be replaced by a new 14,000-seat stadium that will be completed by the 2018 US Open. A temporary stadium will be built to house 2017 US Open matches that has a seating capacity of 8,800. The temporary stadium's location will be outside the East Gate entrance and current ticket office, replacing Parking Lot B.
What is TicketCity’s Rain-Out Policy at the US Open tennis tournament?
If any of sessions 1 through 20 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.
What is the Rain-Out Protection that TicketCity offers US Open tennis clients?
- Rain-Out Protection can be purchased for 10% of the total purchase price of your tickets.

What are the best places to sit at the US Open tennis tournament?
Generally, the best place to sit at Arthur Ashe Stadium is going to be behind either baseline. Sections 1-9, 60-67, and 26-45 put fans right next to the action, with the best angles for following volleys. For day sessions, sitting on the West Side of the stadium will help you avoid the sun. Sections 329-333, and 126-130 often have great shade during day matches.
What is the best food available at the US Open?
The US Open food village has just about every type of food imaginable from deli classics and burgers, to ice cream, seafood, kosher dishes, pizza, barbeque and alcoholic beverages. For seated dining there is the Patio Café & Bar, Mojito’s latin inspired restaurant, two Heineken restaurants and the Moet Terrace for champagne.

What is the best way to get to Arthur Ashe Stadium?

The quickest way from Manhattan is to either take the #7 subway train or the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR). The #7 Flushing-bound train lets off at the Mets-Willet Point station, which is a short walk from US Open.

Either players will need to adjust or the UTSA will need to find a solution to the problem.
The US Open is one of the top tennis events as the 4th major tennis tournament and the final tennis match of the Grand Slam every year. The historic match that has brought the top international tennis starts to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center where the main stadium, Arthur Ashe Stadium, hosts the final events of the US Open Tennis. Arthur Ashe Stadium is the largest tennis-specific venue with a capacity of over 23,500 and premium seating with prestigious amenities tennis fans from around the world come to witness the exciting matches. Luxury seating and hospitality is available at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in the luxury suites, hospitality pavilions and private rooms in various locations inside the stadium.
US Open Luxury Suites
The Luxury Suites available for the US Open at the Artur Ashe Stadium provide world-class amenities while witnesses the matches from spectacular views. There are 90 suites available from any viewpoint of the stadium and are located above the courtside seating sections. All Arthur Ashe suites feature comfortable seating on outdoors balcony, lounging seating inside, plasma televisions, private restroom and additional upgrades for food and beverages. US Open Tennis suite ticket holders receive 20 tickets, 2 host passes and 3 parking passes.
US Open Premium Seat Package

Attendees can upgrade for the indoor seating that provides complimentary lunch and dinner buffets and bar service for each tennis session throughout the day of US Open matches.
Courtside 35 & 36
The best views at Arthur Ashe Stadium are located on the baseline, we recommend Courtside 35 and 36. These sections sit at the center of the baseline and are so close to the action that you can almost touch the players. As player’s change sides, you will have the chance to experience competitors up close and personal. There are only 8 rows in each section, making entry and exit easy, no matter which row you sit in. The best views in the house, and easy entry, make Courtside 35 & 36 our top recommended place to sit at the US Open
Fans looking for a unique interaction with the players should sit in Courtside 47. Located just outside the tunnel, players walk right by Courtside 47 on their way in and out of the stadium. While there are no guarantees, fans sitting in the first two rows frequently get opportunities to receive autographs from players, and are the last to congratulate the players as they leave the court. The views from courtside are good, but this section is all about interacting with the players.
The best section for fans on a budget is Loge 134. These loge corner seats are often noticeably cheaper than baseline seats, while offering almost the same quality of views. This section is also shaded for many of the day matches, and is much closer to the action than the cheaper seats in the promenade. Great prices, great views, and shade, make Loge 134 the best choice for bargain hunters.
