Arthur Ashe Seating Levels
Want Seats In The Shade?
Now with a retractable roof over Arthur Ashe stadium, the days of
worrying about rain outs are over. Also, thanks to the roof structure, more of the
upper level is shaded. The best sections for the shade would be on the South
& West Sides of the stadium which would be sections 305 to
326 in the Promenade Levels and 105 to 123 in the LOGE
Want to see a specific player? We often get asked how do we see
Nadal, Federer, Serena etc"? The simple answer is we do not know. The Order of
Play which tells you who is playing who comes out the night before the next days'
matches. You can view the draws which show you the possible matchups, but beyond
that it's not possible to know for sure.
The Louis Armstrong Court
The newly roofed 14,000 spectator Louis Armstrong stadium is set to debut at the 2018
U.S. Open - Say goodbye to rain delays!
Except for sections 1-18 located just below the press booth which requires a reserved
Louis Armstrong ticket, the other seats inside The Louis Armstrong stadium are open
to all ticket holders, including those with Grounds Passes. The best way to access
these seats is via the upper walkway, which can be reached via the stairs under the
west side of the stadium and via the stairs up from the food concession area between
Louis Armstrong Stadium and the Grandstand.
The Louis Armstrong stadium schedule will feature three day-session matches for the
first nine days of the year's final Grand Slam tournament, and a night session with
two matches for the first six days. And the best part for those ticket holders, as
with the ones who had Ashe seats for the last two years, is they are going to see
tennis no matter the weather conditions.
Protection from the sun. Your best bet are seats on the west side of
the stadium in sections 2-8.
The Grandstand Court - With this court you have access with general admission in the upper level. Your best bet for shaded seats would be in the south and west sections 3-6 so the sun is at your back after around 3:00 pm. General admission seats get the most shade especially under the overhang at the top.
