Watch Tennis Stars Shine at Indian Wells

Two weeks of elite tennis in an open-air stadium in the middle of paradise. A chance to see superstars like Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova up close. To a tennis fan, it sounds like a dream. But it’s very real — and it happens in Palm Springs.

The BNP Paribas Open rings in springtime in the Coachella Valley, attracting nearly half a million tennis lovers to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden the first two weeks in March. It’s the biggest ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and WTA Premier combined event in the world. Read on for tips to make the most of your tournament experience.

Plan ahead

Gorgeous weather, a competitive field, and a generous purse bring the sport’s biggest names to the tournament each year. So you can purchase your tickets well in advance, comfortable knowing you’ll be watching Grand-Slam caliber tennis in a relaxed atmosphere. Ticket packages and daily tickets are on sale now.

Explore the facilities

With 16,100 seats and 44 luxury suites, Indian Wells Tennis Resort’s Stadium 1 is the second-largest stadium in the world. The newly added Stadium 2 features three fine dining restaurants including celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck’s award-winning Spago and renowned Japanese fusion retaurant Nobu. Between matches, take time to explore the beautiful 54-acre campus, which Bloomberg’s Gerald Marzorati called “the most resplendent place on Earth to watch tennis.”

Catch a rising star

A Grounds Pass provides access to any non-reserved seating in Stadiums 2-9 and fan-friendly activities throughout the venue. A steal at $20-$50, it’s an excellent way to catch a glimpse of the season’s surprise risers and exciting storylines. You might witness the next Serena Williams or Rafael Nadal in action.
