US Open Shade Map 2018 for Ashe Stadium


Find Shade at the US Open

I have created a US Open Shade Map to help anyone find a cooler place to watch your tennis match. This one illustrates how the sun will move the shade line inside Arthur Ashe Stadium.

How to Find Shade at a Tennis Event

An easy rule of thumb to find shade (or at least a slightly cooler area) is looking for the side with the umpire chair.

The Umpire chair is located on the West Side of any US Open tennis court or stadium. As you can see in the illustration, the shade line will slide slowly toward the East over time.

Buyer's tip: Look for Ashe tickets in Sections 340 to 324; Sections 122-136 (Loge Level)

These will generally be the most shaded areas to purchase tickets inside while the roof is open. Also if you need some relief away from the sun, it may be wise to move further up to the top under the edges of the roof.

July Heat Wave
Most of the USA just went through a heat wave! Many cities this summer had heat indexes over 90 or even 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix that with bad ozone conditions (code orange or red) and it's a bad idea to be outdoors for long.

Health Risks of staying in the Sun too long
I often hear the reason most fans avoid attending the US Open is that this heat for a whole day can be very draining. It can even be a danger to your health if you have any elderly fans with heart or lung problems. I highly recommend that fans drink plenty of water, wear sunscreen and stay out of the sun.

US Open FAQ - buying from a season ticket holder:
Q: Can I purchase a ticket from a US Open subscriber?
A: US Open Ticket Exchange (for better seats and any "sold out" sessions)
Yes, you can. The USTA has partnered with the US Open Ticket Exchange by Ticketmaster, to serve as the exclusive resale partner for the US Open. US Open subscribers as well as individual ticket holders have the opportunity to resell their unused tickets in a secured fan-to-fan environment, sanctioned by the USTA. 

Do you only need to buy One Single Ticket at the lowest price possible?

1) Use this 2-for-1 special code to buy 2 tickets.
2) If you cannot attend, simply sell the extra one ticket back later. Or bring a friend!

Selling Tip: Set the price a bit less than the lowest price to get a buyer quickly. Money is deposited to you via debit card or US bank account!

All weekend tickets (AM and PM sessions) will sell the quickest. By August most may already be gone! Check back on Mondays @ 9AM EST to see if additional tickets have been added for sale.

2018 US Open Amex Presale Links - Why it's better to Wait until next week (6/11-6/17) for Buy One, Get One offers

Is the US Open Amex Presale worth it?

The annual "presale" Amex tickets offered on 6/4-6/9 are nothing special. It is just one way to reward their loyal card holders for a chance to purchase regular price tickets one week earlier before the better tickets come up for sale. Similar seat options will be available for purchase after June 11.

The Buy One, Get One Free deal is the one worth checking after June 11...

Here is what we know so far:
The 2018 special offer for the Amex B1G1 sessions will be available for the following sessions:

Session 4 - Tuesday Evening (Aug. 28)
Session 6 - Wednesday Evening (Aug. 29)
Session 16 - Monday Evening (Sept. 3)

You will find many more US Open Sponsor Buy One, Get One offers and date choices.
This effectively gives you 50% off the retail price. Note: these tickets require special promo codes to unlock on the US Open purchase map.

IMPORTANT: Resell Ticket Exchange Prices will come down once better prices and more tickets become open to the public. This gives you a better gauge of how much to pay for the "True Ticket Price".

The best benefit of the B1G1 offer is that you pay for the price of one, you get 2 seats next to each other. A great way to introduce a new friend to US Open tennis for its 50th anniversary.

There will also be changes to the scheduling of top matches because of the new Armstrong Stadium built this year. It will feature Day and Evening ticket sessions under a roof, so that may be more reason to wait and see which top players play where! Main Draws will come out in August.

American Express Fine print:
** Offer is limited to promenade tickets and is subject to availability. Each ticket will reflect a face value of 50% off the regular price. Free tickets must be for the same session as purchased tickets.
