Venue Information

The Singer Bowl is a stadium that formerly stood in Flushing, in the New York City borough of Queens. The stadium was built for events during the 1964 Worlds Fair, also hosting various Olympic trials and concerts over the years.

In the early 1970s, though, the United States Tennis Association was looking for a new place to host the U.S. Open as relations with the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, which had hosted the tournament, were breaking down. The USTA was initially unable to find a sufficient site, but the associations incoming president, W.E. Hester saw the old Singer Bowl from the window of an airplane flying into LaGuardia Airport. The old, long rectangular stadium was heavily renovated and divided into two adjacent stadia, becoming Louis Armstrong Stadium and the adjacent grandstand on July 4, 1973.
