I am really curious
Ok yep the tournament is really small, it is held in one sports hall with two courts inside, I found the staff really friendly and helpful we stayed there the whole week and after the 1st day all the staff knew us already (maybe because we were the only english) The best thing to do to access players is to get there early because they will be praticing on the showcourts before play starts, and the doors are normally open, we did this everyday and it was just us and the players
. The actual practice courts you cannot get to or really see to well, so i recommend getting there before play starts
Another area where you get to meet and see the players is the upstairs bar/resturant, it joins onto the players lounge. The thing i liked about the tournament is that everyone was so helpful and friendly, for instance they had a stall with pictures taken from previous tournaments, i asked if i could but one and the lady told me to just take as many as i wanted for free. They are very kind and relaxed.
Hope you have a good time
I forgot to add take a warm coat, it is freezing in there
