    >> Click here for the  FLYER << 

    The best time to enjoy the U.S. Open is before the tournament even starts. This is an awesome and unforgettable experience to see the best tennis players in the world up close. (You'll also see this year's new courts and facilities.)

    You may spot Federer, Nadal, Nishikori, Madison Key, Venus Williams practice or playing games against other top talent. You’ll have the best view of the game and players. The qualifying rounds, which are played the week before the tournament starts, are arguably more enjoyable than the actual U.S. Open. It’s less crowded, very intimate, and there are plenty of open seats!

    Appreciate walking up to a match and enjoy watching the best in the world from a premier front-row seat. Maybe you’ll even catch a practice ball from Federer? You can roam freely and visit all the courts.

    Register for the event, for us - to know how many people we should expect, for you - you’ll receive any updates regarding this event. We plan to send a What's Up list, so you'll know who’s playing where.  It will help us meet up if we don't see you at 2 p.m. (see below).
