Every August for the US Open, Arthur Ashe Stadium hosts elite tennis athletes, crowds of fans, and sponsors for a two week period at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The stadium was not designed to have a roof. For five consecutive years, rain hindered the play during the US Open, causing United States Tennis Association (USTA) to search for a solution that would shield the court and spectators from rain.

Grandstand Stadium, the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center's newest addition to campus. Loved by fans for its intimate atmosphere, the stadium was moved to the south west corner to solve circulation issues. The new 8,125 seat stadium features new fan amenities in a park-like setting and is part of the $550 million re-design of the entire campus.
