The BNP Paribas Open in La Quinta California may be the best value in tennis for spectators.
It is one of only a few major tournaments where the women play at the same time and place as the men. It goes on for over ten days and usually has the top players. It is played in a beautifully designed tennis garden with all the right amenities. Tickets are available at the event or can be purchased from season and box holders directly or through ticket agents at many resorts and tennis clubs around the area.
The practice courts are right beside the stadium (I saw Nadal and Federer practicing side by side on Tuesday!). The seating in all three stadiums is well designed to keep fans close to the action.
If you get a chance, it’s definitely worth a visit!
