The amount of toilets, bars and food eateries were spot on. Not to long a line up! The ushers controlling the doors in between tennis sets were friendly and helpful!

You can get on to the Rod Laver Arena website, which will give you the option to put in your dates, and then chose what type of tour you wish to do, and gives the prices also. I hope that this helps :)
