Last year, I attended the Delray Beach Open for the first time and loved it. It’s an ATP tournament where tennis fans can get really close to the action without shelling out a lot of money (like at most tournaments). To give you an idea of what I’m talking about…the photo above was taken while I was watching Juan Martin del Potro (silver medalist at the Rio Olympics and currently a beloved tennis player) play Denis Kudla.
If you want to watch del Potro, Milos Raonic (ranked number-3 singles player in the world), Bryan Brothers, or any of the others up close, then consider going to this tournament (February 17-26, 2017) even if you don’t live in south Florida. Heck, I might even go in for the day as American Airlines is selling LAX-MIA tickets for just $84 each way!
Where else can you sit in these ridiculously close seats in a comfortable lounge chair for $100? The seats are literally ON the court right next to the ball boys/girls. The only downside is that you really need to pay attention while they’re playing because the balls do come flying by.
Even better news is that I’m friends with the organizers and they’ve offered to give Johnny Jet readers a 20% discount! So for the first time ever, the world’s only ON-COURT “Best Seats in the House” are available for 20% off. They must be purchased by Feb 10, 2017 using promo code JET17. Daily seats are available online or by calling 561-330-6000 x 1. Don’t watch the action, be part of the action, and sit where I sat!
In case these seats are sold out by the time you call, regular seats start at just $25.25 and the Delray Beach Stadium & Tennis Center is small so there’s not a bad seat in the house.
