i was lucky enough to go to wimbledon today for the very first time – it was a new experience and very different to watching it on the tv. i was on centre court, which was very wierd, cos there was no sensation of you being in an outside space, especially as the roof was on. it was only when i went out for a walk that i realised that it was in fact, grey and drizzly – the artificial lights are pretty realistic. i was very surprised at the movement of people during the one minute break between games – people shuffle in and out – in fact there seemed to be more people in the numerous cafes and terrace bars than in the courts themselves!! but after 2 hours of continuous watching tennis, i realised that if you were there all day, you definitely need a break or two. what i did learn was that you can always turn up half way through the day, say after 4pm and buy cheaper tickets for the rest of the day- and now that centre court has the roof and lighting system, tennis does go on until the late hours of the evening. what happens is when people leave, they can return their tickets and their seats get resold for charity. so its definitely worth turning up and trying for a ticket.
