Hi everyone. My friend Joan has got tickets for Court One on womens semi finals day which means all the semis are played on Centre so we shall have doubles matches on court 1. However we are still going to go as we can always sit on the hill and watch the big screen particularly if Lindsay is playing.
I am in the LTA ballot which is drawn on 01 March so wish me luck for some more tickets, preferably centre Court!
I have thursday the 4th, which i reckon is womens semis, on centre court.
Jan I have 2 tickets, but only need one..... They are 55 quid a piece, otherwise i suppose i could sell it while i was there, for huge amounts!!!!
I still dont know if im gonna go, i prefer to go the first week, see more matches and pay less!!! (clearly from the north, a slightly cheap skate bunch).
So im unsure at the moment, but certainly have been allocated 2 tickets.
So who is going to be in the q's, what about you Jan, with ur friend?
I will be sporting a tasteful usa flag, and a i support davenport type of t-shirt!
And will always be trying to blag my way onto centre court without a pass! I must admit they do have more security than other tournaments which makes this tricky!!!!
I read in the news paper - can't remember if it was last year or the year before, where the reporters were tipped off by a former employeee at Wimby that gate 7 (I think) was never suppervised. Apparently there was never any security or anything.
Anyway, these undercover reporters were able to walk through gate 7 without being questioned, checked or even asked for their tickets (which they didn't have). The reporters got a free day at Wimby, as well as meeting Martina Hingis, Andre Agassi and others. They also had a meal in the members section and watched a couple of center court matches!
Beckl, let's compare...
four hours driving... versus about, oh, a 1/2 hour drive, 9 hour plane ride (and that's without stops, layovers, etc.!) ..renting hotel, figuring my way to Wimbledon.. I'd say that would be a good 24hour journey for me, at least. Even a trip to the US Open for me is a cross country journey, so count your blessings!
Hummm, gate 7 hey, I think i'll try that, have to wander aimlessly around till i find that!
Any other tip offs would also be good, but thanks for that rach.
Does anyone know which queue is the shortest i think it is the one not from southfields station, cos i was in that one last year and it was huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggggeeeeeeeeeee.
I will be on Court One watching doubles matches on 4 July unless Beck wants to sell her Centre Court tickets. Also I am awaiting the result of the LTA Advantage ballot on 01 March to see if I have been lucky this year.
I have a USA flag (large one) kindly got for me by Rayrob's parents last year. I also have a Tower of Power banner which I have made myself and a tee shirt designed by Rayrob with TOP on it and Lindsay No1 and some of her tournament wins last year. So I guess they might know who I am supporting. Nikki has a similar tee shirt too, don't you Nikk?
just been checking the prices for eastbourne and i was really surprised..they are quite cheap (im a northerner as u can tell ) about £30 for the final and £3 for a ground pass. i'm seriously looking into going but dont wanna book tickets now incase lindsay doesnt play..cos i only wanna go if she does....do u think she will be playig by then???
are any other UK based TOPS planning on going to eastbourne? i dont really wanna go on my own so if u are and i decide to go we could all go together
