Re: Who's going?

I'm a member so I'm going every day. (I get in for free)

This is my first year as a member so I can't wait.

I'll be arriving very early so you'll probably see me sitting behind the photographers in the front row of the members' pavilion.

You can get tickets through the website or you can call I got mine through the website no problem. They called us because somehow my mom didn't enter her first name, but I spoke to someone and everything was pretty easy.

Re: Who's going?

I am hoping to go along as a photographer, if I dont recieve a pass, I will buy a few grounds passes for 3/4 days, and come along like last year! No point buying a centre court ticket for this event. I can make everyday, I may come to the qualies (but that depends if I go so surbiton instead on that day). Also not sure if to go on the second saturday/sunday as I have eastbourne qualies Hard choices to be made.

Hopefully though I will be able to buy a grounds pass for the days I want to go, I know last year they sold out for a few days very quickly! But seeing as I dont know if I will be going as a photographer, I dont want to waste my money and then end up losing it.

I havent been on centre court I only had grounds passes last year. What is the position like for photographers there? Is it close to the court? Or a way back?

Re: Who's going?

Oh also, I emailed the tournament and they never got back to me... but have any of you gone to the qualifying before? What's the deal there? Do you need to get tickets in advance or can you just kind of wander in?

Re: Who's going?

Yes its free, and hardly anyone turns up! Last year I went, and there was no one around when play was due to start Saturday, sunday is both free

PS I am not sure what time play starts on the week, on the outside courts? Last year was 11.30, not sure if its 11 this year?

I have just found out, that trains from eastbourne to london have been changed so it means most likely if play starts at 11am, for either surbiton/queens I will not arrive on time. Maybe 30 minutes late, which is a total pain in the ass considering how busy queens gets. You have to often arrive an hour early on court 1, to get a damn seat I will have no hope if I am turning up late. I just hope I get a pass.

It's right next to the court.

When I came as a guest last year, there were photographers sitting between me and the players. I was sitting at the front of the members pavilion, just behind where the players sit at the change of ends. It's also where the players walk on and off the court, just behind the umpire's chair.

You need to go to barons court tube station, its a 30 second walk from queens club. Its a 25 minute tube journey, only zone 1 and 2 luckily, so you dont have to pay for 3-4 zones.
