2016 Grounds Passes on now for select sessions


Grants access to grounds and 15 match/practice courts


Only 1500 per session will be sold

The Western & Southern Open will release Grounds Pass tickets to select day sessions beginning at 10AM on Saturday, July 30, available on Ticketmaster. This marks the first time the event has released Grounds Passes this early.


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 and practices. 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 1500 passes will be on sale for the following sessions at the noted prices:


  • Session 8, Wednesday, August 17 at 11AM, $60
  • Session 10, Thursday, August 18 at 11AM, $60


Grounds Passes for other sessions will become available at a later date.


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 32 matches played, with only 3 occurring on Center Court. Stars such as Simona Halep, Sloane Stephens, Sam Querrey, and Andy Murray played 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.

Visit Ticketmaster.com and select the one of the sessions above (starting Saturday, July 30 at 10AM)

Call the tournament ticket office at 513.651.0303 (starting Monday, August 1 at 8:30AM)


No refunds or exchanges. All Grounds Pass sales are final.
