Who's going?
 
I usually attend as much of the UK grasscourt season as possible, and should be able to this year, but my exams are restricting some of this - although I get 2 months off, so I am planning to travel to some tournaments. This is most likely to be one of those, and so I would love advice or tips from anyone who has been in the past! Thanks :)

I plan on going. What kind of advice do you need?

I might go down for a day or so ;) Most likely Monday or Tuesday.

Well it sounds lazy, but any tips for around the tournament; best airport to go to?

I had a much better idea about what I wanted to know, when I originally made this post; now it seems I have forgotten :lol:

Dulles is the major airport in DC and that would probably be your best bet. There's a Metro stop right at the airport. There's also a Days Inn just down the street a little from the Metro stop where the free shuttle picks people up to take them to the tournament site, so if you need a hotel that's one to consider. There are also a few hostels in D.C. but I have no idea where they are in relation to the tournament/Metro stops.

Jess, if you're going we totally need to meet up :wavey:

It seems Opodo can do me a return (via Charles De Gaulle) for 586.60 to Washington Dulles. That's not too bad, but the flight seems pretty long :D!

I'll either be going to Washington or Cincinnati, and a slight chance of both.

Man, the academic gods must hate me. The final week of summer school falls on the tournament week. Part of me says don't go, but it's so close to home, I could sneak out for a round or two, no? :devil:

Reagan National Airport is much, much closer, although it's not an international airport. Dulles does not have a Metro subway stop, National does. You can take a private bus (Dulles Flyer) to a Metro stop from Dulles. But Dulles is a good 45-50 minutes, minimum, to DC itself, while National is about 5 minutes to the District.

Are you sure? I could have sworn my metro stopped at Dulles. But maybe it was Reagan. Odd.

But still, he would have to fly into Dulles.

You're right, it was Reagan. Sorry!
