In recognition of Yale University as a tournament sponsor, the Connecticut Open is offering early round session tickets for just $5 for Yale employees. The $5 tickets are offered for Session 1 on Sunday, Aug. 17 and Session 5 on Tuesday, Aug. 19. To receive the special offer, visit the CT Open website and use promotional code CO14YU.
Yale affiliates are also offered adult tickets at a 25% discount for the other sessions of the tournament, which takes place Aug. 15-23. For this discount, use the same promotional code mentioned above on the website or call 855-464-8366 and reference the Yale University discount.
In addition to these deals, from Aug. 1 through Aug. 8 all tennis fans can receive a free ticket after they purchase a full-priced ticket, applicable for the following events: Monday day session (Session 2); Tuesday’s day and night sessions (4 and 5); and Wednesday’s day session (6). The free ticket will be of equal or lesser value to the purchased one. Use the promotional code CO14BOGO for the “buy one, get one” deal. Fans can also call the box office at 1-855-464-8366.
