USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center information
The US Open takes place in late August; tickets usually go on sale at Ticketmaster in April or May, but are hard to get for marquee games. General admission to early rounds is easier. For about $80 top bleachers on Court 7 can take in five matches at once. Scan the USTA website in January/February for updates.
The USTA has 12 indoor DecoTurf courts, 19 field courts, four climate-controlled clay bubbled courts, and three stadium courts that can be hired (per hour outdoor court $22 to $34, indoor court $24 to $68). Reservations can be made up to two days in advance. Hourly lessons are $90 to $120.
