About Forest Hills Stadium, New York City

The West Side Tennis Club is a private tennis club located in Forest Hills, a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens. The Club has 38 tennis courts in all four surfaces (clay court, Har-Tru, grass court and hardcourt), a junior Olympic-size swimming pool and other amenities. It is the home of the Forest Hills Stadium, a 14,000 seat outdoor tennis stadium and concert venue. It is most notable for hosting the U.S. National Championships, renamed the US Open Tennis Championships in 1968, a total of 60 times, first from 1915 to 1920, and then again from 1924 to 1977. In addition, the finals of the Davis Cup were held at the club 10 times, more than any other venue. The US Pro tournament was held at the venue 11 times, and another big professional tournament, the Tournament of Champions, was held at the venue 3 times. The West Side Tennis Club was the venue of the Forest Hills Tennis Classic, a now-defunct WTA Tour Tier IV event, and a men's challenger event. The Open saw some of its biggest moments and changes while at West Side, including the introduction of seedings in 1927, tiebreakers in 1970, equal prize money for men and women in 1973, and night play in 1975. Currently, the stadium is used as an outdoor concert venue.

  • fantastic place to see a show. caught the recent interpol "turn on the bright lights" anniversary show. first time at the venue and really have nothing but good things to say. it's a hike to get out there but the place was great - tennis-themed throwback to the US Open days, with a small venue feel. yes, the drinks and food are way overpriced but that's NYC for you. will definitely try to catch another show there.

  • Nice venue. Food and drink was pretty good. Lots of places to eat near by. Bleacher seats weren't that comfortable, and I thought the sound could have been a little better, but it is open air. All in all though, a great time!

  • I went here with my girlfriend for a concert to see the band My Morning Jacket. Great show beautiful setting and very nice establishments nearby. The sound system was awesome and the mood is perfect on a warm Saturday night in July. Concerts end at 10 pm PROMPTLY! (Neighbors). Plenty of time to enjoy a show and stop out after for a bite. Parking not the best because of private streets. Read the signs or you will be booted!! Still can find parking within walking distance. I'll be there again for date night with my girl

  • Great venue to see a concert. Not too big. GA is/was the old center court. Beautiful historic neighborhood. Parking can be a little tricky, so look up parking garages before you go. Very close to subway and LIRR stops and safe and nice Queens neighborhood.

  • The most pleasant venue I've been to in NYC. Outdoor shows are great, weather permitting. Acoustics are excellent. View is good from entire stadium. Not a large venue, which might be its biggest benefit.
