WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (FEBRUARY 20, 2013) – Tickets to the 2013 Winston-Salem Open at Wake Forest University go on sale to the public March 5. The Winston-Salem Open will be held August 18-24, 2013 at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex adjacent to BB&T Field. Ticket pricing and package details are now available at www.winstonsalemopen.com.
The Winston-Salem Open is offering several enhancements to this year’s tournament, including new courtside seating that features approximately 20 percent more leg room for individual reserved seats and eliminates all "bench seating." Also, there will be no additional fees to the ticket price, parking will be free again this year and all box seats are padded for comfort.
"We listen to and learn from our fans every year," Winston-Salem Open tournament director Bill Oakes said. "Almost immediately after last year’s tournament, we began seeking ways to improve the fan experience for 2013, and more leg room was clearly something our fans desired. We think fans will be extremely pleased with the new seating arrangement."
"Several of the players from the previous two years already have expressed a desire to return to Winston-Salem, and we’re in negotiations. The players love competing at Wake Forest and have enjoyed their time in Winston-Salem," he said. "Stay tuned for announcements about our player field in the coming months. Last year’s tournament including 25 of the world’s top 50 players, and we anticipate 2013 will showcase another blockbuster group of competitors that fans will generate a strong demand for tickets."
Tickets will be available March 5 online at www.winstonsalemopen.com, by calling (336) 758-6409 or in person at the Wake Forest ticket office located at Bridger Field House at BB&T Field.
