A couple of weeks back I was privileged to be invited along to the world-renowned US Open Tennis Championships with American Express® to experience their five star hospitality first hand and it was a truly memorable day!
It was my first time at Flushing Meadows, on the outskirts of NYC and it was rather special from the get go. A searingly warm morning, we were fortunate to have seats in the shade to watch some tennis legends in action.
As most of you will know, I’m a huge sports fan and enjoy watching all manner of sporting contests, but watching tennis in the flesh is quite something and the Arthur Ashe stadium (the US equivalent of our Centre Court) very much reminded me of colosseums of old, witnessing two gladiators of the modern day battle it out for the US Open crown.
Despite being treated to some amazing hospitality with our tickets, we also wanted to sample some of the food on offer at Flushing Meadows, which has a whole food court of different street food vendors and some seriously tasty grub being served!
Payment with a single tap! One very nifty gadget available to American Express Cardmembers at the US Open was this AMEX band, allowing for contactless purchases throughout the stadium making things dead easy and much quicker – more time to enjoy the tennis on show and all the amazing food on offer.
A special day in a very special City!
