It’s almost time for US Open Tennis!
The biggest sports and entertainment event of the summer returns to New York City’s Flushing Meadows in Queens for the 2011 US Open. Beginning on Monday, August 29th through Sunday, September 11th, defending champions Rafael Nadal and Kim Clijsters will attempt to repeat their 2010 triumphs.
Free US Open Experience on August 23rd
I highly recommend US Open as a sporting event to go to, and now anyone can have a change to give US Open experience a try – for free. US Open offers FREE admission during the US Open qualifying rounds and the chance to see their favorite players take center court on Tuesday, August 23rd, a week before the main draw tournament. The qualifying rounds will be completely FREE to the public and for the first time, the entire USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center will be up and running for the qualifying rounds and you can experience US Open for free. The world-class tennis and entertainment, wonderful restaurants, special events and attractions – all without having to buy a ticket to the US Open.
Arthur Ashe Kids Day
Every year during US Open, the event also organizes the Arthur Ashe Kids Day for kids. The day is filled with entertainment, performers, fun games and of course tennis and kids can play in the SmashZone and meet with the players. The Arthur Ashe Kids Day is on Saturday, August 27th this year.
This year I am traveling during the kids day and we are not able to take the kids, but I would love to go on Tuesday for the free day – anyone interested in coming with us?
