Tickets & Chennai Open


This was at 930 am on 25h Dec’08 morning, the queue standing in front of the Nungambakkam Corporation Tennis Stadium to get their tickets for the upcoming Chennai Open 2009.

And your truly was also waiting alongwith my son there becasue of my lats years experience for the same tourney. The tickets were sold out and the stadium was empty, what an irony last year it was. Because the Corporate Sponsors and Tennis academies bought tickets in bulk and gave / sold to many and none turned out. Hence the Top seeds palyed for an empty (almost) stadia.

The organisers (IMG) should follow the “The Hindu” way, TheHindu when they organise these Theatre Festivals or Music Festivals give away x No.s of invites to Corporate sponsors as letters and the same should be redeemed atleast 15 minutes before the event starts. Else the same goes for sale to people waiting outside and interested in that event. Nice idea. I think IMG & Ravi should take a note of this.

Ended up getting two season tickets for ourselves and returned home.

  1. Hi,
    I just wanted to know whether you will be using both of your season tickets today (Jan 10th). Daily tickets too were sold out for today by the time I went (12.15 pm ). If you know of any availability, would you kindly let me know via either your comments or by mailing me (

    I hope my request doesn’t irritate you by its irrelevance to your post. Sorry if it does, but desperate times …

    Thanks in advance.

  2. What a line!

    Ram: Lori, i forgot to click the line behind me … which would have made you wonder even more 🙂
