With health and safety as the tournament’s top priority, the 2022 BNP Paribas Open will require all attendees to show valid proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 in order to enter the Indian Wells Tennis Garden for the tournament. So, to reward our fans who prioritize the health and wellbeing of themselves and those around them, we are excited to launch two new 2022 initiatives that will recognize these patrons.
We have partnered with the Eisenhower Medical Center to establish a COVID-19 booster incentive program that will reward fans at Tennis Paradise who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and have received a booster shot with the opportunity to win $500 VISA gift cards. This unique new booster incentive program highlights our ongoing commitment to being a leader among sports and entertainment properties in creating the most safe and secure events possible.
Fans at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden each day will be able to enter the giveaway by visiting the Giveaway Booth on the north landing of Stadium 1. In addition, fans can also enter the giveaway on the tournament website. Two gift cards will be given away during each of the tournament’s 21 sessions for a total of 42 prize winners.
As we dearly missed our littlest fans at the tournament’s first-ever fall edition, we are excited to welcome children back to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden by offering free grounds passes to fully vaccinated kids ages 5 – 12, when accompanied by an adult with a ticket.
Ticket holders can visit any box office on-site in order to receive up to three free grounds passes per session, where any eligible minor must present valid proof of full vaccination. While our free grounds passes for vaccinated children promotion runs throughout the entirety of the tournament (available for all days), fans can only receive free grounds passes for the specific day of play in which they show up to the box office with an eligible minor.
