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.
