Arthur Ashe Stadium at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center Tickets
Arthur Ashe Stadium gave the US Open a world-class venue when it opened in 1997 in Flushing in the borough of Queens in New York, N.Y. Named for the graceful and trailblazing tennis legend, Arthur Ashe Stadium holds a seating capacity of just over 23,000 and is the largest tennis venue in the world. The stadium replaced the older Louis Armstrong Stadium next door and cemented the U.S. Open's place as one of the preeminent world tennis tournaments. The retractable roof, added in 2016, allows fans to watch tennis without fear of the weather delays that used to impact the tournament. The stadium is in use for two weeks in late August and early September. Pick up your tickets for Arthur Ashe Stadium events at StubHub today.
