Only I mean tennis stadium!!!!
Packed lots of food and drinks and was out the door by 9.30am heading out for a full day of tennis!!!
Really inexpensive and easy to get to the down town core.......part of the city center is serviced by free trams but the outer areas are not and for these you buy a day pass for 3 dollars(senior rate).....so I exit the apartment get on number 86 Tram for about 8 minutes and then get off and get on the free tram for 2 stops and I am right down town and today when I got off the tram there was another tram to get on that takes you right to the tennis venue...so I would say in 35 minutes it took from my door to the venue!!!!
I bought an open day pass for 44 dollars which allows me to go to any court except the two main courts Margaret Smith and Rod Laver, but I do have a ticket for Rod Laver arena on Sunday.....
Everything is very well organized and hundreds of helpful volunteers......I checked out the schedule and decided I would be better off going to the Hisense arena and just stay there for the day....this is the schedule for that court
After the first match people leave and I managed to move into an even better seat for the remainder of the day!
I left a shirt on my seat and strolled around in between games...hundreds of people enjoying the tennis, the crowds and the great weather!!!
Made some tea and sat and watched the end of the other late match on TV!!!
This just makes me even more excited to be going back into the big arena on Sunday!!!
