  • I loved the visit to flushing meadows. The Park is really beautiful. It is very easy to get to the underground and combination with line f. In 45 minutes you get from midtown. I recommend it for those who enjoy the tennis.

  • My husband and I have been attending the US Open tennis matches for the past 20+ years and we have been witnesses to the various changes/renovations to the tennis center. This year has been the best i...  more »
  • I worked here in 1978 when I was 13 years old which was the first year at Flushing Meadows. When I say this place has come a long way since that time that would be the understatement of the century. T...  more »
  • Pristine courts and a spacious, well kept up interior. You can book hours in advance online or by phone. I've played here as part of a wheelchair tennis program, and the coaches and other center staff are really good - the place just has a nice vibe about it. Also, check out the tasty and inexpensive snack truck in the plaza out front if you are hungry before or after your games ...
  • We have gone to the US Open for eleven years. The "nonprofit" USTA is trying to maximize profits and make larger stadiums that make viewing the venue on TV better. If you go, bring a lot of money and patience as the security lines and trains to the venue make it the start of a long day. Before they got rid of the old grandstand, fans with day tickets could get to see some of the best players and matches from the front rows due to open seating. Now, 3 main courts have assigned seats for the closest seats so the TV audience has a better view of the action on those courts.
  • Only come here for the us open, so I can't speak on the facility other than for that event. The recent improvements have been amazing. These changes have had a huge impact on my enjoyment level during the us open. There's more space to walk around the grounds. More places to get food. And more restroom facilities. The problem I have is with some of the food service employees. Every year I go, I've had consistently bad service. I don't know if they're poorly trained or if they just don't care. Some of the absolute worst food service workers I've ever interacted with. It's not 100 percent of them, but there are enough that it effects me every year.
  • If you decide to go to US Open, you can easily spend the whole day here. Enough of options for food, drinks, shops and entertainment. Screens are everywhere! You don't have to be on the court to enjoy the emotions of a good game!
  • I have not been to Melbourne, but of the 3 others, this is the best in terms of the grounds - plenty of room and supporting facilities. The atmosphere is a bit better in Wimbledon, but this is not far off. On the downside, there is no cheap option to see tennis here as the grounds ticket is almost as expensive as the court ticket. On the upside, you can get to all courts except Arthur Ashe with that.
