The only officially authorized IW 2013 travel thread
 
Post your plans here.

I will be there for the opening long weekend. I will be arriving Thursday March 7 afternoon and leaving Monday morning. I will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express, which does not have a tennis court.

Who will have access to courts and wants to meet up? Unless Nadal or Federer summon me urgently for a hitting session and to get some tips, I expect to be available all the time.

I always like to meet up and hit with TT folks, especially a guru. May be able to book a court at the Hyatt, or meet at one of the local parks.

I can't attend this year, but someday, I'd like a hit with the G-Chief, either in Santa Barbara, Palm Springs, or Vegas.

I just organized a successful local TW meetup of 6 people in December, which included 2 people from out of state.

I hope the top pros don't request my coaching, otherwise we will surely meet up.

If there are continuous morning, afternoon and night sessions from Fri to Sun, when would we find the time though?

I'll be going this year the first weekend, probably staying at the Embassy Suites. Last year Granitechief was kind enough to meet up wtih me and kick my ***.

They don't call him the Chief for nothing

Same here - but I will be there the fist week.

I will be there the 1st week, I have a house in Palm Springs and my guests and I usually hit at Ruth Hardy Park although because of the crowds it's usually dubs only. I usually hit at Plaza Racquet Club in PS but it too is very booked during IW

sureshs 01-06-2013 05:53 PM

Usually there are pros who offer clinics during this time. We need to track them down. Then they will get the courts for us.

Suppose you have 4 full days there, suggest best package to see Fed and Novak play. Only reason I am there.

Connors Fan 01-12-2013 02:18 PM

Is there any USTA 3.5/4.0 tournements around that time there? My complete lack of skills negotiating tennis link is finding nothing, but I know there are some tournements going on before or after.

I know I will be there 11th-14th for sure.

I would bet on the final 4 days.

Count me in. I'm there from March 5-15, ready to play by the 6th or 7th. 4.0 player and I'd love to do some drills early in the week before getting out and playing some.

ductrung3993 01-13-2013 01:09 PM

I want to go but I dont know how to get there from the Bay area ( I dont have a car). Can anyone please kindly give me some advices? Thank you!

burosky 01-14-2013 09:13 AM

Take the BART to SFO then board a plane to Palm Springs Int. Airport. From there take a taxi or public transportation to the Indian Well Tennis Garden.

I am available 7th afternoon to 10th night.

Why don't you shoot for trying to get a court for 7th evening since you will be there beforehand? We can split the cost if any. But not too far from the main area around the Garden. I am not familiar with the place.

Are you staying in Indian Wells? We'll be in Palm Springs and there's Plaza Tennis there, an awesome club thats not expensive for court time, and Ruth Hardy Park which is great as well.

I'll see which days are best to come out to Indian Wells to drill if you don't have transportation

sureshs 01-18-2013 11:33 AM

I will be at the Holiday Inn Express close to the Garden. I can get there Thu afternoon.

Cool. Email me at nightandday4@gmail.com as time approaches to coordinate.

For anyone else up for practice and then play feel free to use the email above as well.

sureshs 01-21-2013 12:21 PM

OK. Don't make any changes to your plans just for me. If more people are interested, then maybe.
