with weather like this I doubt there will be tennis this week
is there any indoor grass courts
These grass courts in Birmingham are shit.(according to photos & reports) I cannot believe that courts on pro tour are in that state
One set of grass courts were not even in use as they were in a terrible condition. The other three looked OK. I saw four ourdoor synthetic hard courts. There are also some old indoor courts and a new indoor tennis centre which was for members only. I was not impressed by the organisation or facilities. There is a new centre court which is incomplete and the one they are using looked good but only has temporary seating. Compared to Eastbourne it is rubbish!
There are almost no spectator facilies around any of the courts except centre court. You can only watch the outside courts from one side on a raised walkway. As for food or toilets there are only temporary facilities. Tried to get into the main members club to eat but they said members only. It is amazing this event has been around for a while with such bad facilities.
