   Daily tickets and daily double packages for the BNP Paribas Open are now on sale, tournament director Steve Simon announced this week.
   The BNP Paribas Open, the largest WTA and ATP World Tour combined two-week event in the world, is scheduled for March 9-22, 2015, at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
   Daily loge and grandstand tickets for Stadium 1 range in price from $15 for a grandstand seat for the first Thursday evening session to $67 and $105 for grandstand and loge seats, respectively, for championship weekend.
   The daily double package provides the same seat (suite, box or loge) for both day and evening sessions. New this year, fans can get seats right behind the front box seats by purchasing a premium courtside daily double BNP Paribas Open tennis package.
   Local residents, students, seniors, military and USTA members can receive 30 percent off on loge seats in Stadium 1 between March 11 and 19, 2015.
   BNP Paribas Open daily tickets for reserved seats in Stadium 2 in the lower bowl, including 100 sections and select 200 sections, begin at $130. Access to some 200 sections in the lower bowl and to all sections in the upper bowl is on a general admission basis and available to any patron holding a ticket to the tournament. Also, any ticket to the BNP Paribas Open provides access to the general admission sections of Stadiums 1-9 for day sessions. 
   Classic series, mini, group and hotel packages are still available as well.
   Improvements at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden include eight new (9 feet x 5 feet) video screens inside Stadium 1 and new hydration stations on the loge level. Stadium 2 will have new shade awnings added to the restaurant patio areas and the Point Bar, along with a designated reservation check-in area for all three restaurants with seating and television screens to watch the matches and a new bar.
   Also, seating also is being added throughout the venue, including Practice Courts 15-20. In all, 3,625 seats will be added, with 45,110 seats being available for a session at the 2015 BNP Paribas Open.
   Lastly, new video boards will be placed near all practice courts to make it easier than ever for fans to identify the players on court.
