The day began with Wilson gifting free tennis racquets to the first 1,000 kids through the gates and continued with day-long activities and performances including a stadium show by sports and entertainment group Dude Perfect and musical performances by Em Beihold and Nicky Youre, two of the hottest new artists of 2022. Holiday Inn also provided $10 meal vouchers for kids 12 and under.

The US Open’s Fan Week concludes on Sunday. The main draw begins on Monday and runs through Sunday, September 11.


  1. My 4 year old grandson was one of the first people at kids day, however know one knew where the free racquets were that were supposed to be given out. It was essentially a scam.
