Last year, the stadium added four quirky rooms hidden beneath the bleachers. This year, there are five additional rooms, according to Mike Luba, concert promoter from Madison House Presents.
Each room showcases decor related to tennis and history, from trophies and rackets to old posters and photographs. The rooms lead out to a “private” ground-level porch separated from general admission area via some well-kept hedges.
With the iron arches, the stadium now resembles an original drawing of the stadium from the 1920s.
The secret lounges are part of a major design update made to breathe life into the venue and its grounds. There is also a new grassy concourse near food vendors that doubles as playable tennis courts.
As for the VIP lounges, they are only used by invited guests and friends of performers and concert organizers. To get in, you’ll need a special password and an eagle’s eye to spot the entrances.
