The Oasis at Cincinnati Open

The Oasis

We’re all about unparalleled experiences, both on and off the court, which is why we are investing $260 million to enhance our facility over the next two years. We’re excited to unveil the first of these investments that you’ll be able to see this August: two new hospitality areas, additional practice courts, redesigned Crosscourt Suites, and, of course, a brand new seating experience at Center Court and Grandstand.

“While tennis is the main attraction, we want to create a world-class environment for all spectators to enjoy between the match action,” said Bob Moran, president of Beemok Sports & Entertainment. “These enhancements are another step in that continued investment to better the facility and, with it, the experience for all Cincinnati Open attendees.”

These upgrades, in addition to the previously announced project to replace each of the nearly 12,000 seats within Center Court and to improve the seating within Grandstand Court, are part of a $260 million investment to enhance the facility. Tournament owner Beemok Capital pledged these venue improvements after announcing its decision last year to keep the tournament at its current home for the next 25 years.

The Oasis

The entire Top Deck at Center Court will be redesigned and upgraded, with a portion being converted into The Oasis, an exclusive hospitality offering for select ticket buyers. The Oasis will be designed as an Italian courtyard and will feature an exclusive menu highlighted by Veroni Charcuterie.

Grandstand Suites

Thanks to the new Grandstand Suites, more fans will have the opportunity to watch matches at the tournament’s second largest stadium. These suites are the first hospitality offerings at Grandstand Court and will be available to host groups of various sizes.

New Practice Courts

Four new practice courts will be added to the venue, bumping the total to 21 courts across the site and giving fans even more opportunities to get up close and personal with their favorite players.

Crosscourt Suites Upgraded

Additionally, upgrades will be made to the interiors of the Crosscourt Suites, which overlook Center Court from the southwest corner.

Brand-New Seating Experience

Work on the above projects will take place while a brand-new Center Court seating experience is being installed for all Cincinnati Open attendees, including:

• Top-of-the-line stadium seats in place of all bleachers

• Padded seat bottoms on all lower bowl seats

• Oversized, padded seats in all premium seat locations

• Armrests, cupholders and extra legroom for all seats

The seat upgrades will extend to Grandstand Court, with padded seats installed in the entire lower bowl and oversized, suite-style seats placed along the north baseline.

Following the 2024 tournament, additional work will begin as the tournament grows to 96-player singles fields (up from 56) for 2025, which will result in more competition days as well as further facility growth. Projects as part of that expansion will include the addition of a new player building, a multi-court indoor tennis facility, improved food and beverage around the grounds, an additional 10 tennis courts and the installation of six pickleball courts. Additional information about the expansion and related projects will be shared in the coming months.

The tournament saw significant improvements in 2023, including the addition of the Fan Zone, premium hospitality options such as The Grandview Club and Sip & Serve Sun Deck, an increase of floral displays highlighted by more than 10,000 annuals, the installation of 74 LED digital screens around the grounds and fold-down seats in place of bleachers on the outside courts. More than 194,000 people attended the 2023 Cincinnati Open.

Fans looking to enjoy these upgrades while watching the world’s best tennis players may begin their planning this week when multi-day ticket packages go on sale. Available tickets will include a Full Series package, which allows entry to the duration of the tournament, and four Mini Plan packages, each with tickets to two or three days of action.
