I've been to Queens as both a paying and non paying guest many times but have to admit that this year it has got particularly awful. The idea of paying for Court 1 at a IS event is just laughable- up until last year the £14 ground pass was actually good value (allowing everything but centre) but Centre has always been a rip off, unfortunately. They should pay me to put up with some of the people that come there, I've even started a competition to find the most stupid things people say at Queens with interesting results!( I shall add this to my report picture thread later)
Agree - couldn't believe it when I saw this year they were charging for separate entrance to court 1.
On a wider perspective, would also like to know what percentage of Queens seats (and other major tournaments) are actually available to the GP at all. Am watching Rafa now and the stands are still half empty. Yes, I appreciate corporate funding is king now but it is particularly to galling to those of us who would kill to get in to see these matches to know there are 'guests' with tickets who would rather swill Pimms.
