Find out what happens with your tickets if a US Open session is cancelled due to rain.
Read the US Open’s inclement weather policy.
Our night session during the Tuesday of the second week was cancelled due to rain after about 55 minutes of play. Because this was less than 59 minutes of play, we were able to swap the tickets for either another session later in the week, or the same session at the 2013 US Open.
The downside of trying to swap the tickets for another session the same week was that it had to be done at the Box Office at the grounds. Luckily we were attending a session the next night, otherwise we would have had to make the 2.5 hour plus round trip journey from our apartment to the grounds just to find out what tickets were available.
If you choose to swap your tickets for the following year, this can be done by mail. But it’s not really a feasible option when you’ve travelled from Australia. On the plus side, any exchanged tickets can be legally resold.
Not all tickets are eligible for an exchange. Check the policy at the link above for details.
If your session is cancelled, and you are eligble for a ticket exchange, you should receive an email from the US Open confirming which sessions you can swap your ticket for.
Until next time
