Tennis Ticket Information
Securing tennis tickets for the Australian Open Grand Slam Tennis Tournament is a bit easier than the other Grand Slams. They do make more premium tickets available to the general public, and evening getting tickets the day of the event is easier. However, that is not always best case scenario for someone planning out a long trip, so Tennis Travel Info is here to help you with all the options.
- Tennis Australia – Tennis Australia does make premium seats in the main stadium (Rod Laver Arena) available for many of the sessions; however, not all of them. Furthermore, because Rod Laver is smaller than Arthur Ashe Stadium, even the upper level seats are fine.
However, there are a couple of drawbacks to ordering tickets directly from the Australian Open. The first is that tickets are not available until the October preceding the tournament. While a couple months away from the event itself, that is relatively last minute for someone who is planning a trip from the United States. And it may be you find out they donít have premium seats on the sessions you want to attend. Still, overall the Australian Open tennis offers the most to spectators in terms of good seating at fair prices than the other slams.
- Ticket Resellers – Online ticket broker and ticket resale sites can be one way of guaranteeing yourself the seats you want on the day you want them. However, as always when dealing with ticket brokers (such as Tennis Tickets) or resale sites like StubHub, you run the risk of paying an extremely high premium.
- Tour Operators – Tour Operators can sometimes be extremely helpful when planning a trip to see the tennis at the Australian Open. Companies like Grand Slam Tennis Tours typically offer complete packages that include airfare, tennis tickets, hotel accommodations & hospitality. Furthermore, these companies often arrange travel throughout the rest of Australia and New Zealand, offering you more options in addition to just watching the tennis.
