2024 Mubadala Citi DC Open Tennis

updated: July 13, 2:50pm – this page is at http://wdcsa.org/tennis

Seating and Tickets

Matches are held in the stadium court and 4 outside courts. At the end of the week, there will be far fewer matches on the outside courts than earlier in the week. Seating on the outside courts is open-seating thus for these whether you have box or upper level ticket makes no difference. In 2023, the tournament sold on several days of the tournament a limited number of some “grounds passes” for about $30 which provided access to the outside courts but not to the stadium court.

Seating on the upper level of the stadium court and on the outside courts is on benches whereas box seats are fixed seats with a back.

Our box seats in Row 36 are in the 3rd and 4th row. The seats face north. See the image at the bottom of this post.

Our 2024 ticket costs from the tournament are 17% higher than for 2023 so we have had to raise our prices accordingly. Our goal each year is to breakeven.

Matches on the opening weekend will typically conclude in late afternoon except if there are rain delays. Matches the rest of the week often do not finish before midnight if there are rain delays.

WDCSA Tickets to purchasers will be distributed via SeatGeek as was the case in 2022 and 2023. Once you get your tickets you can transmit them electronically to others in your group. For admittance to the tournament and the paved lot, you show your SeatGeek ticket on your phone. This system worked well for our members.

Parking and Shuttle

The 2024 parking and shuttle information (when it becomes available) will be at https://www.mubadalacitidcopen.com/en/event-info/parking-and-directions. The shuttle from the Friendship Height metro station likely be about $12. The charge for the parking lots in the area of the metro station is likely to be around $14.

For each of the 11 sessions, we have 2 parking passes for the paved parking lot (lot A) which is south of the facility and is accessible is accessible from Colorado avenue, just west of 16th Street Street. The grass parking lot is accessible from 16th Street, just north of the facility. The grass lot is first-come, first-served and will fill up entirely on busy days and it will be closed on days when rain is likely in order to protect the turf. The grass lot was $40 in 2023; since the grass lot price has increased by about $10 in each of the past couple years, I wouldn’t be surprised if the grass lot price for 2024 is $50.

Parking is limited to residents of the neighborhood within several blocks of the tournament during the entire week of the tournament. In 2023, the extent of the restricted parking area was at least 2-3 blocks more in all directions than it had been in previous years so I although I often walked in from the neighborhood in previous years, I would not recommend that now.
