Anyone here camped at wimby before and know roughly how wide the pavement is? lol, doft question I guess, but I just though it would be nice to have a big tent.....just in case!
When I rolled it out in the conservatory at home my dad was laughing his head off, "what!? Are you going to be renting it out or something!"
Any help you can give me would be great.....if no one can then I will open it up to GM's and see if anyone could be bothered to help me - even if it is really early!
Hey Rache, The queue for the wimby tickets start at teh gates on the gates, by turnstyle 56 to be precise. Here there are loads of tents and its these people who get the luck 500 centre cout and 500 court 1 tickets that are up for grabs each day of teh tournament for the 14 day period.
The queue then works its way back....down teh road....over teh bridge....and way down the road back to Southfields tube station (neares tube for wimby). The most tents are at the front of teh queue by the gates ar they are the first there as they queue outside for days! (keano's!
) However there are tents further back in the queue too!
Its a really great experience and you have loads of fun woith your mates....BBQ's....beers and summer nights!
This year im working in the players restaurant for a couple of days for a week, so get tickets...for 2nd week but lots of free ground pass tickets, so all the clan are welocme to a few of those if you cant get court 1 tickets and CC tickets!
My uncle is Ted Phillips (hence my job in players restaurant), so ill be posting later if you guys need ground passes!
Watch this space.......
