Popular economic option to see world-class tennis; No access to Center Court
Only 1000 per session will be sold
The Western & Southern Open will release Grounds Pass tickets to sold-out day sessions beginning at 10AM on Friday, August 8. A grounds pass allows the bearer access to everything at the Lindner Family Tennis Center, except for Center Court.
Outside of Center Court, the venue has 15 other tennis courts; 7 of which are used for match play and the other 8 for practice viewing. Grounds pass holders can access any of those outer courts, which all provide first-come seating for the matches occurring throughout the day. The Grounds Pass also allows the patron to visit the food and entertainment plaza, shopping areas and can view all the Center Court matches on the large video walls at the UC Health Match Point.
Only 1000 passes will be on sale for the following session at the noted prices:
- Session 8, Wednesday, August 13 at 11AM, $40
- Session 10, Thursday, August 14 at 11AM, $40
To give an idea of the volume of matches that can be seen on a Grounds Pass ticket, last year’s Wednesday Day Session saw 35 matches played, with only 3 occurring on Center Court. Stars such as eventual finalist and top-ranked American John Isner and tennis icon Venus Williams both played during the day on match courts that were accessible to Ground Pass bearers. Fans can access the grounds as early as 9AM each day to take in some of the practice activity on outer courts.
Because of the price and popularity, the event is encouraging patrons to purchase grounds passes in advance as their availability is not guaranteed the day of the event.
