The tournament site that was a landfill before original Miami Open founder Butch Buchholz came along 33 years ago and erected a tennis venue now looks to keep it’s stuff out a landfill as long as possible. Was that was a compliment or a needle? Or just irony…..
DISCOUNT MIAMI OPEN SWAG
Here is a hidden gem not everyone knows about. At the end of the Miami Open every year the tournament owners dump their excess branded apparel and products to the Crandon Park Tennis Center who sell it at a deep discount. So if you had an eye on something you can stop by the pro shop to pick out a t-shirt and pair of socks like I did.
There are very few Small and Mediums left but if you are big dude and wear XL you will be set. My box seat buddy picked out a few t-shirts for her BFF.
They have polo’s, mugs, kids things, hats but a las I’m sorry to report no Miami Open towels this year. I know. You will have to wipe away the tear with a tissue instead.
