Western & Southern Open at Lindner Family Tennis Center
The Western & Southern Open tennis tournament is played at the Lindner Family Tennis Center, which is the historic tennis center located in Mason, Ohio. The Lindner tennis center has four main courts (Center Court, Grandstand Court, Court 3 and Court 10) that are used during the tournament.
The biggest matches are played on Center Court, which has a capacity of nearly 11,500. The Grandstand Court can accommodate nearly 5,000 fans. The courts at Lindner are hard court surfaces and they are outside. The most popular ticket options are seats in Center Court Stadium in the Lower Box, Loge, or Terrace Level.
Sections 101 thru 130 are all termed Lower Box. This is the level closest to the court. All seats are box seats meaning each box is delineated by metal railing. The lower box level has four quadrants the East (section 107-113) and West (section 120-128) offer court side views with varying degrees of shade depending on the time of day.
