Location & fees

US Open Fan Week is being held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center grounds in Queens, New York City. It starts on August 19th and ends on August 25th, offering six days of fun events and shows.

One of the best things about US Open Fan Week is that it is completely free. That’s right, the entire event is free to attend, including the events and performances. However, if you do want to go to the events, you will need to get a free ticket from the US Open website. While these tickets are free, you will be incredibly lucky if you manage to receive one.

Despite this, the grounds are open even if you do not manage to get tickets to the events. Here, you can buy merchandise, get food from stalls, and go to the multiple viewing centers where you can watch a live feed of the events if you are not able to get into them.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Experience

While US Open Fan Week is set to be an extravaganza of fun and excitement, there are a few ways you might be able to make your week even better. First, we would recommend trying to get tickets to the events if you haven’t already. You might not get them, but if you do, it will be more than worth it (it’s free after all).

If you are a fan of betting, you might want to place a bet on a few of the event games. While the

US Open Fan Week might not be hosting any official games, many betting sites have the events available for bettors to participate in if they so choose. It’s not for everyone, but if you want to increase your engagement, it’s something to consider.

Finally, take advantage of the surroundings. If you are going for a full week and have a hotel booked, don’t be afraid to venture outside the grounds when there’s not much going on or you fancy a change. Whether it be remembering local veterans’ history or trying out some activities in the area, you might as well make the most of your time.


We hope we have been able to give you a better insight into US Open Fan Week. This year is going to be a blast, featuring live shows, head-to-head matchups, and unforgettable experiences. And don’t forget this is all for free! While you will need a little luck on your side to get tickets to some of the events, the grounds are completely free to enter for the entire week. It doesn’t get much better than that.

So, if you are interested in going, get planning now and head over to the US Open website, where you can put in for your free tickets. We will meet you there!
