Tickets question

I'll be going to New York this year, and I'd like to know...is it better to buy the tickets in person, or to order them in advance?
I'll be going on day 1, grounds pass ticket, about 3 or 4 people.

Re: Tickets question

Oh and...how much are Arthur Ashe Kids Day tickets? Or to just go there and see players practice and such on that day?

Any info would be appreciated.

Re: Tickets question

grounds passes are never sold out so u can buy them once u get there but might want to purchse them online or ticketmaster outlet to avoid lines at the USTA Tennis Center

i thought it was free admission for kids on Arthur Ashe Day but they might charge adults, i'm not positive.

Have u checked the US Open website for more information?

Re: Tickets question

Oh ok, guess i'll pre-order then.
Yeah I checked the website...don't think they really have much, rather ask in forums.

Thanks for replying though

Re: Tickets question

Hey

I will be in NYC in the first two and a half weeks of the US Open and therefore want to visit the Open on two days (probably Monday and Tuesday of the first week). The problem is, I don't know how to get tickets. It doesnt seem like German Ticketmaster (Kartenhaus) is offering them and when I got that right Ticketmaster doesnt purchase tickets to Non-Americans. Is there any other possibility to get tickets for the Open or am I supposed to wait and just buy the tickets when I am in NYC. It would be better to have the tickets in advance though. Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: Tickets question

For anyone who's been to the Open or is a ticket specialist

I'm gonna go to my first grand slam this summer! () I've got Arthur Ashe Stadium tickets for the Day Session on Wednesday. Am I able to browse the grounds and see all the other matches with these tickets if I want to opt out of Arthur Ashe Stadium?

Thanks!

Re: Tickets question

^Yep, you can still browse around with Arthur Ashe tickets. You can go anywhere with those.

I have no idea how to buy them in Germany. Have you tried the USOpen.org website?

Re: Tickets question

Of course you can, and I highly recommend going to the outer courts especially since you have tickets early in the tournament. You'll be able to get real close with outstanding seats on outer courts with top level players. Personally, my favorite court is the Grandstand, you can get seats in the first row(only one the first few rows of one side are reserved) and there are some top players there. I've seen Mary Pierce and Tati play there among others.

Re: Tickets question

I've got another question!

I live in Canada, and when I was going to purchase the tickets online, there was only one option for Canadian customers saying:

"Your tickets will be mailed to your billing address and delivered no later than 48 hours before the event in a plain unmarked white envelope."

What exactly does that mean? If I purchase them now, when I receive the tickets, and will I receive them in time before I leave for New York?

Re: Tickets question

If grounds passes never sell out, why is Ticketmaster telling me they're sold out for 8/31 and 9/1?

Re: Tickets question

I just purchased my tickets for Monday.
Actually, there is an option at Ticketmaster for International Will Call. I should have read more carefully, but now I got them. Thanks for your answer anyway, hingismart.

fennelbird... I dont think the ground passes are sold out for that day, maybe the amount Ticketmaster got are sold out.

They usually send them out in mid-July. If you haven't received them in July, then you should call them.

Are you sure you clicked the right ticket? It should never sell out.

You're welcome. I'm glad that you purchased the tickets!
