The inaugural San Diego Open World Tennis Association (WTA) 500 tournament is scheduled for Saturday, October 8 through Sunday, October 16 at Barnes Tennis Center, located at 4490 W. Point Loma Blvd, San Diego, CA 92107.
Reigning US Open champion Iga Swiatek of Poland headlines the Hologic WTA Tour event, which will feature seven of the Top 10 and 16 of the Top 20 players in women’s professional tennis.

Fans purchasing grounds passes will have access to the 500-seat stadium on Court 2 and the San Diego Open Fan Village, which will feature a daily Q&A and autograph session with a player, the Hologic Health Area, interactive activities and a large screen to watch Stadium Court matches.
“Fans coming to the San Diego Open WTA 500 are going to have a very unique experience as they get to watch the world’s top players on the WTA Tour up close in our intimate 2,300-seat stadium,” said Tournament Director Ryan Redondo. “Every seat offers ticket-holders an incredible view of the court.”

According to Redondo, one of the best ticket options for fans are the San Diego Open WTA 500 Qualifying Rounds on Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9 at Barnes Tennis Center.

“Tickets for Qualifying Rounds are only $20 each day and the player field for qualifying is absolutely phenomenal,” Redondo said. “2017 US Open champion Sloane Stephens and 2021 US Open finalist Leylah Fernandez are among those playing in qualifying for a spot in the main draw. The competition will be fierce.”   

WTA Grand Slam champions who have won titles in San Diego include Billie Jean King, Tracy Austin, Steffi Graf, Jennifer Capriati, Conchita Martínez, Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, Venus Williams, Mary Pierce, Maria Sharapova, Justine Henin, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Samantha Stosur.
