Write a script about the US Open
and see your script get produced!

In partnership with


  • Use other tennis movies for inspiration - think Match Point, Wimbledon, or Tennis Anyone.
  • Write your five page short script about the US Open and we'll pick a winner by October 1st.
  • All proceeds will go toward the production of the movie! We will begin production on the script as soon as we identify a winner.

The United States Tennis Open is one of the best attended sports events in the world. The glitz and glam of NYC attracts celebrities, fashionistas and the rich and famous. We are looking for a short script that captures the tennis, the excitement, and the glamour of the US Open! We will produce the winning script and send the winning work out to all 75,000 Scripped.com members, and to our 10,000 Twitter followers.

Here are a few tips to guide your contest entry:

  • Try to keep the script low-budget - we are targeting a production budget of under 3k.
  • Research today's tennis stars! There are a lot of characters out there - Federer, Serena, Nadal and Sharapova are just the tip of the iceberg.
  • Do you want to write about an underdog? A young up and comer taking it all?
  • Watch old footage of the US Open - will your movie be more 1980s themed (think John McEnroe, Chris Evert and Ivan Lendl)?
  • Have fun, and watch the event for inspiration!
