The Rotterdam Tennis Tournament — a Brief Guide

Thinking of — or planning on — attending the 46th edition of one of the more venerable non-major, non-Masters tournaments in men’s tennis?

Here are a few details provided by fans on the ABN Amro Tennis Tournament, whose qualifying rounds are underway in Rotterdam. The tournament runs through Sunday, February 17.

Get tournament tickets here.

What is notable is that if you buy tickets for the main ATP competition, you also get to see the wheelchair tennis tournament held concurrently with the ATP 500 event. That might be a treat. This is the 10th annual Rotterdam wheelchair tournament.

If tournament tickets are sold out for any session of play (though with Roger Federer not returning to defend his title and with several other big names having pulled out, that is not a likely occurrence in 2019), you can go to a Dutch equivalent or (if not that) cousin of what Americans know as Craigslist. Here is the link to this alternative site if tickets become hard to get for a session you want to attend.

The other note worth passing along, if you are considering or actually planning to attend the Rotterdam tournament, is that the Rotterdam subway gets you very close to the building where the tournament is held, the Rotterdam Ahoy Arena. You can get driving directions from various regions of The Netherlands, but this page also features — if you scroll down — a link to the subway outlet which can get you close to Rotterdam Ahoy. You will need to get a pass, as this link explains.
