The 13,300-seat stadium court is the centerpiece of the Tennis Center at Crandon Park facility, home of the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Florida since 1987. The Sony Ericsson Open uses twelve courts for competition courts, plus six practice courts. The facility is also home to two European red clay courts, four American green clay courts, and two grass courts. During the majority of the year when the Sony Ericsson Open is not on site, the Crandon Park Tennis Center is a Miami-Dade County park that is open to the public year-round. Cliff Drysdale Tennis is located at the tennis center and offers year-round clinics, camps, and private lessons. All aforementioned playing surfaces, including the stadium court, are available for public use.
The Tennis Center at Crandon Park is actually the third home of the Sony Ericsson Open. It began in Delray Beach in 1985 and moved to Boca Raton in 1986, before permanently settling in Key Biscayne in 1987. The Tennis Center is also home to the United States Tennis Association's player development program headquarters and the 16 and 18 under Junior Orange Bowl.
