Can I come watch the qualifying matches?
Yes, the qualifying matches are open to the public and will take place at the Tennis Center on Friday and Saturday. Tickets can be purchased on site the day of the event.
Is it possible to purchase a ticket for the grounds only?
It is not possible to purchase a ticket for the grounds only. All tickets will provide you with an assigned seat in the stadium. The ticket will act as a grounds pass for match play taking place on the outer courts where seating is on first come, first serve basis.
I want to buy tickets to see a particular player, when is she scheduled to play?
If you are looking to see a particular player play, your best option is to wait until the daily schedule is released to find out if the player you are looking to see will be playing that day. The daily schedule is typically released around 7:00pm the night before and is posted to the Connecticut Open website as well as in the local newspapers.
Do you offer seats in the shade or out of the sun?
Due to the tournament being an outside event and not having a roof on the stadium, the sun will be a factor.
What is meant by baseline, sideline, or corner view?
The baseline is the view you see when you watch a match on television. You will see the front of one player and the back of the other. The sideline is watching a match from the left to the right on the side of the court. The corner is watching the match from an angle.
Do I need to buy one ticket for the day and night or do I need to buy two separate tickets?
If you are planning on staying for both the day and night session, you will need to buy a ticket for the day session and a ticket for the night session. If you are interested in purchasing a ticket for the day and night, we offer Daily Double packages, which have discounts applied to them.
