Unhappy Who's Going?

I would like to go with my parents but my mom is a disabled person. I've been in Wimbledon , USO and Nottingham on my own, but i'm not sure if the experience could be complicated for my mother. any info /tips?
thanks

Re: Tips for disbled people

Alfonso, most of the courts have excellent accomodations for disabled persons. The website will explain the accessibility in terms of parking etc., I had to use it one year when on crutches, it was quite close. However, the remote parking (which is what the general public uses...) will prove to be quite inaccessible, as the shuttles over to the venue from parking are tour buses which (if i remember correctly...) are not ADA compliant. (you can call tourney to verify...) However, I was able to secure disabled parking by nothing more than displaying my temp disabled parking permit (if you bring medical verification with you when you rent an automobile, you should be able to get one, but again, verify that through your rental agent.)

If you have any other questions, dont hesitate to PM me....

hay there Jackie Stephens...

very cool being a ball boy. I have a friend who also is a volunteer at the tournament.
I guess you mean by ..."do I want to play"....you mean tennis....I hope
Thanks for the invite but I am a fan ...not a player.
Will you be on center court at all ? I have seats right next to the players entrance on center court.

cheers
