I was wondering if we could get a group of Tennisopolis members to go to the great Indian Wells tournament. If we can agree on a day or two, it would be really cool to hang out and have a ball.
The dates are March 5-18. It is free on the first day. There's lots of food vendors, beer garden, tennis equipment and clothing vendors, opportunities to get player signatures (I got Laver and Nadal) test out racquets on a real court at Tennis Warehouse tent, fast gun radar, nice picnic type grass in front of a giant video monitor...
Mark Mayor, the Tennisopolis creator, will be there and we're looking to have a hit on a local tennis court as well. Love to play doubles with a bunch of people!

I won a free day pass ticket for tomorrow Tuesday from groundspass.net!!! Anyone like to carpool with me??
Anyone coming out today (Wednesday 3/14)? I have a friend that needs a ride
Sorry, I'm officially broke. lol
he texted. Is it really a 4 mile walk from the bus stop to the grounds?
sure, could very well be
I can't make it today either. Can he take a cab to the grounds?
He took a cab back to the hotel. He'll have somebody come get him tomorrow (Thursday). You guys missed a good day of tennis! Very nice matches earlier today.
Can't go to them all. Would go broke. lol
I like those packages they have posted. Everything from lodging to tix. Are there shuttles that take you from your hotel to the grounds if you choose one of their packages? Has anybody here tried one?
Ok, one more day to the show! The wife and I are leaving tomorrow at around 7 or 8 a.m. Hopefully we won't get lost, ha ha ha!
Chin, I haven't purchased any of the packages. I would call them and ask those specific questions. If they give you a list of hotels included with the lodging package I would call those hotels directly and ask about the shuttle. Seems like a reasonable accommodation! Mark may know since he travels in from out of state.
