The US Open takes place in the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows (Queens, NYC). The event opens with the first match on August 28th, and concludes with the final match on September 10th (see detailed schedule below). The NYC-based Tennis Tournament is not only one of the most iconic championships in the world of pro sports, but it is also a major tourist attraction, with concerts and family-friendly activities scheduled throughout the two-week period.

The Open dates all the way back to 1881, making it one of the oldest tennis tournaments in world. At its inception, it was a men’s only tournament held a the Newport Casino in Newport, Rhode Island (known as U.S National Singles Championship).

Now, The Open draws from the crème de la crème of the world’s most renowned tennis players, men and women included. The main court at the US Open is the 22,000-seat Arthur Ashe Stadium. Smaller side courts, like the 10,000-seat Louis Armstrong Stadium and 6,000-seat Grand Stadium, provide a spectacular experience for tennis fans outside of the most anticipated (and glamorized) matches.

On August 26th, clients with children can head to Arthur Ashe Kid’s Day, powered by Net Generation, which is the largest single-day tennis and entertainment event in the world. Parents and children will have the opportunity to see tennis stars, celebrities, and kid-friendly concerts. Previous years have featured household names such as the Williams sisters, and Roger Federer, Ellen DeGeneres, Will Farrell, Michelle Obama, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Britney Spears. The free Grounds Festival offers interactive games, music and tennis activities for all ages! All proceeds benefit the USTA Foundation, which helps fund the National Junior Tennis & Learning Networks.
