Indian Wells (March 7-20, 2022)

After 2 long years of Covid chaos...

The World's top male and female players will be back at this year's tennis reunion in the desert.

BNP Open Indian Wells - some limited tennis tickets on sale

Returning to the normal March time and the "Spring Forward" weekend - the BNP Open is always my easy way to remember when it's time to change clocks forward!

2022's Vaccination and Safety Updated Info

  • Only fully vaccinated fans and players will be allowed at the BNP Open

  • Free ground passes for children ages 5-12 who are vaccinated
    (get up to 3 children passes per accompanying, ticketed adult).

  • Vaccine Booster Promotion: if you already have your vaccine booster like me, they are rewarding you responsible fans by holding 2x Daily Drawings to win $500 gift cards.

  • Please remember to download register your digital vaccination record before arriving!
    You don't even need to bring your paper CDC card. Just go and register at: https://clear.app.link/BNP_Paribas_Open

  • Save time by having a screenshot of your green verified checkbox and ID ready for scanning.

  • For security reasons, the clear bag policy requires that all personal contents must be carried in a clear transparent container. For US Open vets, we know carrying less is more.

  • Digital Tickets, touch-free contact, electronic payments are encouraged.

    In Fall 2021, I had a food media preview of the upgrades: I personally love Sherman's Rubens at Stadium one! The Korean chicken bowls are pretty delicious too. Nobu inside Stadium 2 has a full bar and a great viewing area on the 2nd level.

Ticket Selection - Box Office vs Online Options

Tickets are available for sale at the box office but you will need to download an AXS ticket app separately. Fans may wait for the player draws to come out first to figure out which of the 3 stadium tickets (or grounds pass) to buy. Best to plan out your day with printable draws for planning to see your favorite players (Rafael Nadal) at either the day or night session.

Digital tickets are a lot safer and easier to use. Losing a paper ticket happens much more often than you think, but your mobile phone is on you all the time.

Hope you can make it to this "5th Slam" event and visit Palm Springs. It is definitely worth the experience for any tennis fans in the USA for a short vacation in California. Welcome back!!
