Re: The Boodles Challenge Stoke Park 18th-22th June 2013

it's a good way to see top players in action (3 matches per day) at half the price of tickets for Queens and way better value than the Hurlingham Club where prices start at £295.00!!!

It's an exhibition so you could argue that they don't try that hard but since it's their only probable match practice on grass most of them usually are fairly serious about winning. Losers play one another so all the players get 2 or 3 matches and there are often last minute appearances from those who aren't already in Queens/Halle/Eastbourne.

Very much a garden party atmosphere (as Kooyong, Guinot-MaryCohr etc) but it's a good day out (as long as it doesn't rain!) and I'm going for the 9th year 'cos it's only 20mins drive from where I live.

Nice field ..... they'll probably add a doubles pair or two and maybe a couple of British youngsters as well.
