    Last update:

    1. Be at the Croxteth Leisure Centre (Altcross Road, L11 0BS) for six or just before, and you'll be directed to the annex;
    2. We need shuttles - it's the one thing I couldn't source locally. If you bring a tube it will be absorbed into the total cost and divided up betwen all of us. £80 for the venue, but between 6-8 of us it won't be disastrously expensive when all's said and done.

    See you all tonight,

    M.

    I just bought four tickets for the evening session tomorrow (5pm Wembley, 1st August). Plan was to go with the kids but now it looks the kids are going to stay with a friend, so we don't need their 2 tickets.

    Seats are second row, court-side in the 2 rows of seats right on the edge of the court. They were £95. Not sure if anyone is interested?
