U.S. Open officials teamed up with Synergy Events to bring back the SmashZone - a 20,000 sq. foot interactive fan experience - back to the National Tennis Center's Indoor Training Center after a three (3) year hiatus. The SmashZone featured a variety of games and exhibits for fans of all ages to enjoy, including:

  • American Express "Challenge A Pro" - An interactive GreenScreen technology that enables fans on-site to virtually play against tennis pros. After the consumer participates in the exhibit, a digital video is captured and sent to him/her via text, MMS, or email (which they can then share with friends) - check it out here
