Indeed, I have tryed applying for a pass for a website. If I fail to get a pass, I will not be coming. Because of the fact that tickets are sold out and even if I did want to queue on the day (the trains are now running an hour later compared to last year, so I wouldnt arrive in time to queue). Anyway thats irrelevant, I would never queue for tickets. I just have to hope I get accredited.

Strange news about the qualies on saturday and sunday:

Wristbands will be given out on entry to the Queen's Club from around 1
0am.
Matches are also scheduled to start around this time.

Please note that in the event of rain, if matches are moved to indoor
courts spectators will not be admitted.



Where are the indoor courts anyway? I thought they only had astro turf courts and grass courts outside

Also it seems major problems with the tube during queens week, you are unable to go on the tube to barons court from victoria. This is pathetic, it means it will be impossible to get there.


Just checked and it seems only the saturday and sunday are effected. There is no service running on either of those days. Not even a bus, or another tube.


barons court (queens tube station) is shut so I cant get there what a stupid week to do maintenance and not provide transport.

Ahhh ok, I wonder if they allow people with players pass, press pass etc in there.

I know even the players and coaches use the tube I saw paul annacone on the tube last year. I wonder what they will do about getting there

My mate Jack is going to be working in one of the bars!

So if you go to get a drink and get served by a fair-headed aussie short arse ask him if his name is Jack and tell him Ricardo said he had to give you a free drink!

True Story!

Enjoy the tennis guys!

Many players do, they will just have to get off at the stop before and cars will no doubt collect them.

The indoor courts are near the player lounge - which when the tournament is not on, is more indoor courts. The shale courts and astro are more visible of course.

For those going during the qualifying weekend, it isn't that far from Hammersmith to Queens Club. I'd say no more than a 20 minute walk, perhaps a bit less. And there are buses in the area too. I live in Shepherds Bush and while it would be easier to get there by tube I should be able to walk it in 40 minutes. While I agree the amount of weekend closures on the Underground at the moment is pretty pathetic, walking can be a good way of getting around too.

Hey chris, thanks for the information. I will consider this. Has barons court been closed many times recently? I will still probably go to surbiton instead I think, probably too much of a pain.

Default Re: Who's going?

Had a look chris, and see its about 37 minutes on the tube from victoria. Double the time

But, according to google, its only 0.9 miles away from queens club (hammersmith) so should only be a 10 minute walk or so? Route seems simple too:

1. 1. Head south from Butterwick - go 106 ft
2. 2. Bear right at Talgarth Road - go 0.1 mi
3. 3. Turn left at Fulham Palace Road - go 0.5 mi
4. 4. Turn left at Greyhound Road - go 0.4 mi


Will have to make a choice I guess on friday, but thanks again for the info! Always nice to have locals knowing the drill
