The Tennis Match That Wasn’t
Grand Slams are great. But Wimbledon and the Australian, French and U.S. Opens are not the only places to see great tennis with big stars. Whether you're a hard-core fan or a casual player, Debbie, who blogs at Live From La Quinta, gives the low-down on attending a top tier tennis tournament. ~js
The BNP Paribas Open is the current incarnation of the tennis tournament that takes place every March in Indian Wells, which is just down the road from La Quinta. I am fortunate that I work in a place that many of our members purchase season tickets for the event, and, if they cannot use a ticket on a certain date, are happy to give it to someone who will appreciate it. That is what happened this week. I was given two tickets to the evening session, plus a valet parking pass.
