Default no video cameras allowed in the U.S. Open

Security increased for this year's U.S. Open

August 22, 2002


NEW YORK (AP) -- U.S. Open spectators will encounter tighter security measures, including extra police and a ban on video cameras and backpacks.

Last year's tournament ended two days before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Each ticketholder will be allowed to bring one bag into the U.S. Tennis Center, where the year's final Grand Slam tournament starts Monday. Bags must be smaller than 12 inches wide, 12 inches high and 16 inches long.

Other barred items include briefcases, coolers, radios, cans and bottles. And security guards can prevent people from carrying any other items deemed dangerous or inappropriate.

Organizers originally announced umbrellas would be banned, too, but later said fans can bring them.

``We have an obligation to protect everybody,'' U.S. Tennis Association spokesman David Newman said Thursday. ``We must do everything in our power to have the best security possible.''

Organizers wouldn't say how many uniformed and undercover police are being added.

no backpacks

Glad Wimbledon or the other slams don't use this policy or else it would be mayhem.

So can or can't you bring your own food, i guess you have to hold it in a plastic bag

i bet they would carry out searches in your food for plastic explosives
