Mark your calendars – Kick Off Weekend for the 2019 BNP Paribas Open is March 8-10! Thinking about spending a few days with us in Tennis Paradise? We’ve got 5 reasons why Kick Off Weekend is a great time to join us.
The draw gets halved every round, it’s the nature of the game. Because of this, the odds of seeing all of your favorite players on the court is higher earlier in the tournament when there are more matches in play. The dates of Kick Off Weekend span 1st and 2nd rounds for the ATP and 2nd and 3rd rounds for the WTA which will give you a fantastic opportunity to see your favorite players, witness an early upset and see the most tennis in play.
This emotional ceremony will leave you with chills. Held annually on the first Friday of the tournament, we honor and pay tribute to veterans, active military personnel, police and fire personnel. Salute to Heroes takes place on Stadium 1 between the first and second matches. This is a tournament highlight every year, you won’t want to miss it.
There’s no other way to put it, the first weekend of the BNP Paribas Open is a party! The atmosphere is electric and the energy is contagious, come be a part of it! Between matches picture yourself sipping Moet within the Circle of Palms, lounging at Stadium Plaza or creating the perfect Instagram post in front of our flower wall.
We offer nightly entertainment at the Village Stage and Kick Off Weekend will not disappoint! Make sure to wear your dancing shoes and get ready to make some moves on the dance floor with these nightly lineups:
Friday Night – Rock 4 Vets
Saturday Night – John Stanley King Band
Sunday Night – Killer Dueling Pianos
The first weekend is the ideal time to get a few autographs from your favorite players. Catch them after a practice session or keep an eye on our Onsite Activities to see who has autograph sessions that day.
