Owner description: Once known as the U.S. National Championships, the US Open originated as a single men’s tournament held solely for entertainment purposes back in 1881. Not long after, women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles and mixed doubles also became a part of the growing annual tradition.

Love tennis and there are several courts to visit. The Arthur Ash stadium is the big one where you see the grand slam. Great little restaurants and great atmosphere. Look forward to August!!

Every year I get a grounds pass (as of 2012, $60) and spend a day during the first week of the U. S. Tennis Open just wandering around the dozen-and-a-half outer courts, taking in a set here, a match there. When my feet start to hurt, I head for the Stadium or Louis Armstrong, where the seats are quite comfortable; or, better yet, to the Food Court, which has substantially improved over the years, with better food, more shade, and all those jumbo screens for watching big-match action. I'm not a VIP, don't get fancy treatment or special admission, but for a day I can absolutely lose myself in one fine match after another. The first week lets you watch quite famous players in doubles matches, up-close-and-personal, or check out the practice courts, where Rafa, Maria, et al. turn up occasionally. Take money -- the food's not cheap -- but as little else as possible, as backpacks, large bags, coolers, etc., must be checked. A good zoom-lens camera is a good idea. Taking a bottle for water will save you many $$. I live in NYC, so the Tennis Center is a subway ride away. Were I coming from out of town, I'd try to stay outside the city, somewhere in Nassau on the LIRR route where it's easy to transfer to the line that goes to Flushing (check the LIRR web site), and save myself a boatload of money and time.

I visited a few weeks before the US Open. There was a lot of maintance work going on. Sadly I was only able to walk around the outside. I hope one day to be able to visit and take in a tennis match or two!

Nothing says the start of the fall season in NYC like a visit to the USTA during Labor Day weekend for the US Open. Evening Sessions at Aurther Ashe Stadium is a must for visitors.

The US Open Tennis at USTA National Tennis Center was a excellent place to see my favorite tennis players up close. You can go to any of the courts except Aruther Ash on a ground pass and sit anywhere. On some of the side courts I was in the front row and able to see the action as close as you can get to a match, plus I was seeing the best tennis players in the world. If you want to see good tennis up close that is the place to go.
