3 ways to buy US Open Tickets early this year

US Open Tennis Event Tickets
UPDATE for 2024
They are only allowing *one* order per session to purchase up to 16 tickets - it is best to check out and open a new session if you want to buy tickets for multiple days.

Amex Presale starts on May 28 - should you buy or wait?

If you have already booked your travel dates, buying early is good.
But if you're on the fence, waiting until later in the Summer is generally safe.

  • Almost every year, the face value of US Open tennis tickets does not run out before July.
  • August is the best-selling month because fans will know who is playing and who is not.

Price ranges for tickets (2024 Data Points under $100)

2024-09-03 Quarterfinal Men's/Women's 36.00

3 BOGO Deals (Buy One, Get One) Session Tickets

For 2024, the BOGO sessions announced will be for:
  • Session 4 - Tuesday Evening (Aug. 27) - Louis Armstrong Stadium
  • Session 17 - Tuesday Day (Sept. 3) - Arthur Ashe Stadium
  • Session 19 - Wednesday Day (Sept. 4) - Arthur Ashe Stadium

In recent years, they have also offered four select sessions for the BOGO deal later in the summer.
The extra round of BOGO deals was released July 12-15 for Amex card holders.

Very limited in date choices, but at a fair price if you know you are going on those dates.
More session offers will become available *after* July 15th once the public sale starts.

Use promo code "INCENTUR" to view available seats:

Louis Armstrong - Night Sessions (Courtside) - ($15 each, now all gone)

  • Session 2 - Monday Evening (Aug. 30) - Louis Armstrong Stadium 
  • Session 4 - Tuesday Evening (Aug. 31) - Louis Armstrong Stadium

Arthur Ashe Stadium - 2nd Week (Promenade Level) - ($17.50 each)

  • Session 17 - Tuesday Day (Sept. 7) - Arthur Ashe Stadium 
  • Session 19 - Wednesday Day (Sept. 8) - Arthur Ashe Stadium

Should you wait for more options? I will explain how you could get a much better deal.

Letting some people buy tickets at the full retail price first can be smart. Then you can get them much cheaper later if they find they cannot attend. Discounted tickets are coming out all summer long.

Tickets for the first week inside Ashe are discounted quite a bit and only look to be selling out for a while. It is the Labor Day weekend and Finals Weekend tickets that are pricy.

We have been monitoring ticket sales for over 15 years and have always found the best value on US Open tickets after the General Public Sale begins on July 15 @ 9AM EST.

There are usually more choices, so you will have a better idea of your travel plans to NYC by then, and the daily schedule of tennis events will be available by then.

Lock in your seats before the public sale in July! Useful for getting great seats on popular days.

US Open Resale Tickets - sold by Fans to Fans (TM)

So why wait if you know they will get sold out later? The Labor Day weekend or Finals Weekend are always popular, so you should consider buying these dates first.

For the weekday sessions, if you want to save some of your hard-earned money for the same tickets, read on! We want to help our fans get their US Open tickets for the dates they want at the best price possible. It pays to be patient this year, and we will explain.

Can't make it to NYC?  Try to visit the Cincinnati Open (in mid-August)

Big action and stars in a much smaller venue in the Midwest!

It is also a Masters 1000 event and very family-friendly, which means much cheaper costs for hotels and food. The 2023 Final was amazing with Alcaraz and Djokovic, so they will be back in Mason, Ohio for 2024!

How to play tennis nearby on any budget

10 Easy Ways to Play Tennis Locally

5 Easy Ways to Play Tennis Locally

Tennis begins as the weather warms up
Whether it's Singles or Doubles, here are some suggestions to find a partner or a team to join.

New to the area? Where to meet other players?
You can find hitting partners or seasonal leagues anywhere in the USA. Below are some options from least to most expensive.

Basic tennis gear is all you need to start - shoes, a racket, and some balls
You can start playing with a decent pair of tennis shoes, a basic racket, and a can of $3 tennis balls.
If you enjoy it, gradually upgrade the strings and other gear as you play more regularly.

Practice Walls

Locate your nearest tennis courts with a practice wall. If you spend time practicing at a tennis wall, chances are good you'll find other players with the same mindset for improvement. You can also quickly judge their technique to see if you want to ask them to hit.

Pick-up Matches

Go to the same public park regularly a few times a week, and you're bound to run into them.
Weekend warriors or after-work sparing partners tend to be found at the local parks during peak times.

Facebook Online Groups

Most areas with a large tennis population will have several groups to join and feature a free message board to contact other players. Use common sense with your personal safety when arranging a match with strangers in public areas.

In the DC/VA/MD area, we lead a group of about 700 players strong.
With your first introduction post, include your skill level (3.0, 3.5, etc), years of experience, how often you play a week, and your preferences (singles, doubles, rallies, practicing drills). Tennis Groups

Joining a free group event is a great way to get your bearings and find a regular group of casual playing partners. The skill level is usually across the board, but with multiple courts, usually, you can usually rotate around until you find the right pairing.

Note:  Bring a can of new balls and be open to making new friends. I would avoid any that require upfront money or push you towards coaching lessons.

Recreational Leagues

In many popular tennis regions, such as Atlanta, San Diego, or Austin, local tennis leagues are available to join for ~$30/season or even per year. You can locate a better-defined skill range and challenge a big list of nearby players. Collect contact info to set up matches later.

Tennis Classes or Weekly Drills

Joining a local tennis class is a great way to eliminate rust and engage with similar players. Often, you can join a "drop-in" class if you're new to town. With weekly lessons, you'll build good habits and can join new classes that are always starting.
