    Default Has anyone been to the Yonex All England at the NIA Birmingham?

    Hi everyone,
    my first post...
    Has anyone been to the Yonex All England at the NIA Birmingham? ?
    If so what is the best day to go?
    I am considering buying final tickets for myself and my daughter when they go on sale but not sure if I will get a good courtside seat?
    If not, then I am thinking about buying 'roving' tickets for the earlier rounds where you can basically pick your own seat.
    Has anyone been, and can you recommend which day is best for the best seats, I don't want to be stuck in the upper stands away from the action.
    Cheers

    Many have last and previous years and I'm sure they'll contribute once the Worlds are over ... I know there is at least one similar thread but I can't find right now. By the looks of things Thursday seems a good day although the number of courts has already been reduced by then ...

    I've been down on the Thursday, and it's great because it's the last day when all three courts are in use. If you can bag seats close to Court 2 (as we did) you can end up spoilt for choice.

    I went this year loved every minute but I prefer the BWF World Championships (I was mopping the courts thats why I love it more got to meet the players I won't forget it)
    But the quarter finals for me are better.

    How does one get into the court mopping business? Sounds like a great chance for those that dont mind mopping

    For AE, most of them mopping the courts are children if i'm not mistaken.

    Yes they are.... Badminton England give young players from Badminton England clubs mop the court and absorb the experience of watch the best players in the world playing the game, I am a student and I go to a Badminton England club and I was able to mop the courts during the World Championships at Wembley Arena

    Most of the court mopping kids are from local schools through the week.
    Then at the weekend it's young players
