Tennis matches are just one part of the US Open. Exploring the grounds give you the fullest experience.
And if you are coming to Flushing Meadows, be sure to stop by the Net Generation kiosk which is by the Grandstand.
Net Generation is a new program from the USTA designed to “welcome a new generation of players and help them usher in the next era of tennis. By working with coaches, schools, and parents, and offering them the full support of the USTA, we are ready to break new ground on and off the court,” according to its website.
The USTA is all in on this project too even re-branding Arthur Ashe Kids Day for the event
At the Open, there’s a boardwalk style arcade complete with three 80s style eight bit games and a crane game, where you can pull premium prizes.
Visitors can sign up at kiosk next door where they get a Net Generation activity book and get redeem prizes for just playing.
It’s just one of the neat parts of the US Open, as the 2017 version gets underway.
