    Default Tickets to AE-05

    We got superb seats at the front last year, but this year I fancy some right in the middle like a camera view, so I'm trying to book REALLY early.

    I went on the website I got them from last year, and they aren't available there, but you can get them by phone apparently. Are they available or not...and what is the demand for them at this point in time? I don't want to miss out on the seats! THE SEATS!

    Hey pal.

    Last year the final day cost £20 per ticket, and about £2 drop for each previous stage of the tourney. I live about 2 hours away from Bham, so it's easy to drive. A Paris return flight will cost...around £70, but don't hold me to that.

    I'd suggest staying for the duration if you come.

    Aleik.

    Birmingham has an international airport, with about 2 runways
    About 30 minutes away from CDG Paris airport

    Birmingham International is outside of the city centre, it is about 20-30 minutes away from the NIA, where the All England is held.

    Hotels close to the area cost about £40-£70 for an ordinary room, per night. If you book early, you can book at the same hotels that the stars stay at (Just opposite the NIA). There are plrenty of fine restaurants nearby, you can often catch the players dining there. The nightlife is pretty enjoyable too, though no stars have been found having fun, not even Taufik

    London to Birmingham is 120 miles away, which will take a train 1.5-2 hours

    I dont think you can get a low cost flight from Paris to birmingham so easily and London to Birmingham trains are expensive. Have you thought about flying from CDG to Nottingham East Midlands? You can get a flight for about 20 Euro each way from www.bmibaby.com, depending on the day. The train would then be about 1 hour from nottingham to birmingham and cost around £9 (about 13 Euro).

    You can check www.railtrack.co.uk for fares and timetables. I am guessing around £30 GBP return London (Euston)-Birmingham (New Street), but it does depend on the time you are travelling. If you book in advance, you can obtain cheaper tickets.

    You can also catch the coach (like a big bus), from London Heathrow to Birmingham for about £15 return. It will take longer..but it is fairly cheap.

    You can check www.gobycoach.co.uk

    Syoran PM me with the dates you are planning to go. I am planning on going Fri/sat/sun (QF/SF/f) I should be able to help you.

    On this subject we should try arrange a get together for the BFers going, maybe badminton on the saturday night too? We(my friends and I) usually go to an all night venue if anyone is willing?(although makes you a bit tired for watching the finals!

    Default times of play

    I've just booked tickets to Saturdays (12th March 2005) play at the NIA, and having never been before wondered what time play usually finishes for the day?

    Hi guys.

    I am also interested in going to AE this year. My plan is to fly to London Luton on Friday morning and return on Sunday evening.

    Any tips about where to stay in Birmingham? Do you think it is necessary to book tickets in advance? What seats are good?

    If it fits for you, I will be happy to join any badminton or non/badminton related activities during these days.

    Regards
    dzgdz
