The Bank of the West Classic is the longest-running women-only professional tennis tournament in the world and is the first stop of the Emirates Airlines US Open Series. Owned and operated by IMG, the WTA Premier event features a 28-player singles draw and a 16-team doubles draw with total prize money of $753,000.
Seating Solutions was there to provide additional seating for this event. Green seats were a must therefore we supplied them with our safety code compliant Ultimate seating system, with a combination of our green VIP 903 box seats and green standard flips with a section of our Ultimate 24” bench style bleachers for general admission. Our system in total was able to seat over 1,300 tennis fans comfortably.
To help move fans to their seat with ease, our system included a crosswalk with two end railed staircases and three front loading railed staircases with egress to code compliance. Our system was fully picket railed and all aisles had mid-aisle handrails and contrasting aisle nosing for added safety. To finish the look and keep spectators from accessing under the stand we supplied black scrim from top to bottom.
