Tennis Game Tickets
Tennis is one of the most exciting individual sports to see live. From the first serve to match point, tennis games offer spectators the chance to witness the athleticism, determination, and skill of some of the world’s best tennis players in action. Tournaments are typically played over a two-week period, giving fans plenty of chances to score tickets to matches featuring their favorite players going head-to-head. From courtside tickets at the top Grand Slam tournaments to a single session ticket at smaller racquet club tournaments, Event Tickets Center has the tennis tickets you need.
Popular Tennis Tournaments
There are a variety of popular tennis tournaments that showcase some of the highest-ranked players in the world. The four most significant events are known collectively as the Grand Slam tournaments. They include the Australian Open in mid-January, the French Open in late May to early June, Wimbledon in June-July, and the US Open in August-September. Winners of Grand Slam tournaments over the years have become household names worldwide. Players like Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Jon McEnroe, Serena Williams, Raphael Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Jimmy Connors, and Martina Navratilova are some of the tennis stars that have swung their rackets on these famous courts.
How Tennis Tickets Work
Even for tennis fanatics, tennis tickets can be a little confusing. With tournaments lasting multiple days and different tickets providing different levels of access and seating to spectators, it can be difficult to know which tickets to buy. Tennis tickets are typically divided into day session tickets and night session tickets. Day session matches usually begin around 10 am or 11 am, while night session matches start around 6 pm or 7 pm. The grounds are often comprised of one center court, surrounded by other match courts and practice courts. Many tournaments will sell seats to the center court for a particular session, which give fans an assigned seat in the center court and access to the rest of the grounds and courts on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Tennis fans may purchase tickets to one or multiple sessions during a tournament to see their favorite players face opponents. Ticket prices will vary depending on seat location, session, the round, and any special or VIP access associated with the ticket. Some tournaments offer packages for multiple sessions at a slightly discounted cost.
Admission to the biggest tennis tournament stadiums can be challenging to secure. Fans queue online and in person to get access to the best tickets to the most popular singles and doubles matches featuring the biggest star players. If you want to avoid waiting in line or struggling to secure a ticket during their initial sale, Event Tickets Center has you covered. ETC has tickets to all the professional and NCAA tennis games, matches, and tournaments on the annual schedule. Genuine resale tickets are available for purchase from tennis ticket resellers, so you don’t have to miss a single scorching serve, backhand dig, or break point.
The History of Tennis
The modern game of tennis originated in Birmingham, England, in the late 19th century and was known as “lawn tennis.” It had close connections to various games such as croquet and bowls and to the older racket sport today called “real tennis.” Since then, the equipment, rules, and courts have all changed dramatically to become the game we know today that’s played on hard courts, grass, and clay in both singles and doubles competition. These days, tennis is enormously popular worldwide, an Olympic event, and features some of the best individual athletes in the world of sports.
