DFS Classic-Birmingham (7-13 June)

Its a bit early yet but who cares

tickets gone on sale from NEC Box Office (doing it online will cost u 1.50 for each day cos you cant get a weekly one online, best to ring up the LTA number below)
http://boxoffice.necgroup.co.uk/perr...&EventID=DFS04

or ring 0870 909 3015 (same # for ATP Nottingham)

LTA Members can get weekly package for £35 (plus £1.50 handling charge)
its alot better to get this, even if you dont go all week.

For non-LTA members its £50 for week (plus £1.50)

buying separate tickets will cost you around £80sh.

Good luck to my favs

I will be going on the qualifying Saturday and the semi-final Saturday

And if we are still off school for "study-leave" and I don't have any exams, I might go sometime during the week

I was looking at the prices on the internet, and the prices for Edgbaston are very similar to those of Surbiton I will probably be going to Surbiton this year (school hols) but am digusted by the prices for a $25k Challenger compared to a Tier 3 WTA event!

I'll be going on the qualifying Saturday & Sunday (which are free-of-charge). Never attend the final weekend, since down at Eastbourne for the qualifiers there.

Incidentally, Surbiton is free-of-charge Saturday - Monday (bank holiday).

I'm staying in the Briar Rose Wetherlodge in the city centre, where I also stayed for the Tipton 10k earlier this year. Not cheap (£40 per night), but they have really nice rooms, and the pub underneath is great.

I'll be going again, just hope the weather will be good to us this year. The tuesday last year was just dreadful weather, best moments for me though were watching Martina Nav practising, watching Daja Bedanova (although she lost ), and bumping into Maggie in the pouring rain, she was eating one of those lovely crepes they sell and had chocolate sauce all round her mouth - bless!

Will probably be going on the semis day this year, see you guys all ther i hope!
