“It’s like Disneyland for tennis fans.”
That’s how GSTT Sales Manager James Watson describes the US Open. This week, we’ll share some fun facts and great staff tips about the American Slam so that you can make the most of it. Questions? Shoot us an email or call 800–289–3333!
In 1975 at Forest Hills, the US Open became the first Grand Slam to host night matches. These days, the electric atmosphere of night sessions in Flushing Meadows is something we look forward to all year long.
Visit America’s Slam
Depending on the package you purchase, you will sit in some of the best seats in each section. Our courtside packages will put you within 20 rows of the court, which beats Promenade, Row Z, which is a dizzying 120 feet above the court.
We had some great tennis celebrities visit us at the US Open last year for our Welcome Dinners—Reilly Opelka and Taylor Fritz amused us with their banter, Tracy Austin captivated the crowd, and Kevin Anderson spoke with us right after his semifinal win.
The GSTT Experience
In addition to great seats and a stay at the wonderful JW Marriott Essex House in Midtown Manhattan, our guests will enjoy a Welcome Dinner with a tennis celebrity. Daily transfers to and from tennis depart every 30 minutes, and our commemorative gift is sure to delight you. You also have the opportunity to play tennis. Plus, we can arrange other tickets for you—whether it’s baseball or Broadway, let us know and we’ll be happy to help you out.
Player agent James Beres says to try JG Melon for the authentic NYC experience and a great burger (cash only) or Smith and Wollensky for an excellent steak. Plus, keep an eye out for players in the square from 36th and 3rd to 50th and Lexington—most stay (and dine) in that area of Midtown. Aside from restaurants, Manhattan has tons to offer—museums, shopping, Central Park… Just remember to bring good walking shoes!
