Thumbs down Ordina Open... Have they gone mad???

The other day I received mail from the Ordina Open, with a form with which I could buy tickets for the 2005 edition.

Here are prices :

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: €30,-
Friday, Saturday, Sunday: €40,-

Plus €2,50 per reservation..

How the heck can they charge that much?!

Is that expensive then? Queens charge about 90euros for a Friday ticket.

I don't know for sure, but for a whole day at a mixed tournament, that doesn't sound thát bad. You should check what they ask for 1 session at the antwerp WTA tournament.

Re: Ordina Open... Have they gone mad???

Of course Queen's is ridiculously expensive, but it's a yuppie tournament that offers huge names..

Of course Antwerp is way too expensive, but not even that much more expensive AND it is indoors, so there is not the chance of rain delays (nope.. no refunds in Rosmalen). Plus they offer only top players, unlike Rosmalen which has the last direct accepted player ranked about #90 or lower.

And if Rosmalen will offer some great players next year, then it will be worth it. But last year's field wasn't that good at all. Of course it's great that it's both WTA and ATP but what they are charging is ridiculous. Plus, it has been going up rapidly every year.

Indeed.. Wimbledon was much cheaper (ground pass OK but still) and much better

Re: Ordina Open... Have they gone mad???

you dont even need tickets, being able to get press passes eliminates the price problem

Re: Ordina Open... Have they gone mad???

well to be fair, if you compare prices to football etc ( you will be paying 30-40£) for 90 minutes. So i think the prices of tennis tickets are actually quite good

Re: Ordina Open... Have they gone mad???

Lol I went to Paris Bercy monday, tuesday and wednesday and paid 18€ overall.
I wasn't on my cheap seat at all because first range was empty all days long

Queen's prices are astonishing
