    Louis Armstrong Stadium

    Louis Armstrong Stadium is the second tennis stadium of the U.S. Open, the last of each year's four Grand Slam tournaments. It is located at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, in the New York City borough of Queens. The stadium was named after the famous African American jazz musician, Louis Armstrong.



    The Singer Bowl opened on the site in 1964 for the 1964 New York World's Fair, sponsored by the Singer Corporation. In 1977, the US Open moved to Flushing from Forest Hills. The Singer Bowl was heavily renovated to host the Open, essentially being divided into two new stadia, Louis Armstrong Stadium and the adjacent grandstand. The stadium held close to 18,000 at its peak usage.



    In 1997, the stadium was replaced by Arthur Ashe Stadium as the main stadium for the Open. Louis Armstrong Stadium was renovated again, reducing its capacity to around 10,000 and adding a brick facade to match that of the adjacent Ashe Stadium.
