The Ordina Open generally starts matches at either 11:00 or 12:00, but the earlier you get there, the better chance you have of watching a practice session. The practice courts are easily accessible to spectators. I tried to get there by 10:00 every day. It's a lot less crowded then. You can take your time and get a good seat at the main court.more
The food options at the Ordina Open are great, but expensive! Especially expensive is water. A very small bottle will cost you nearly 3 Euros!!! Lots of people bring back packs filled with snacks. I recommend bringing some high protein snacks such as peanuts and raisins because they are light weight, fill you up and give you energy -- and bring a...more
If you bring tennis playing kids to the Ordina Open, bring the racquets as well because there are lots of other things they can do besides watch tennis. Walk over to the Tennis Today magazine booth and inquire about the tennis clinics that go on throughout the day. Tennis pros are on hand to do some basic drills on the practice courts.

How parking works
At the 2006 and 2007 Ordina Open, parking cost 5 Euro. How it's done is you park, walk into the event and pay a guy at a booth. He gives you a small ticket that you hand to a parking attendent on your way out. If you miss the booth, you can just give the attendent 5 Euros on your way out. So don't forget about that extra 5 Euros you'll need if you park at the event.
Rock around the jukebox: Second hand Records
At the Rock around the jukebox event tons of second hand records are for sale.
Prices range from 50 cents to several Euro's; some rare and high quality ones may even top 2 digit numbers!
You need all day to see as much as is possible and still there will be many that you missed.
Together with the collector fair at the Utrecht Jaarbeurs, this is one of the biggest fairs to go for record hunting.
What to buy: Records.
What to pay: From 50 cents.Related to:

Rosmalen What to Pack
What else to bring to the Ordina Open
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Layer your clothing. When the sun comes out, you will want to remove a few things, when the clouds hover overhead and the wind and rain pick up, you will want a light, water-repellent jacket. Bring a hat to keep the sun off your face. FYI: if you're sitting in sections B1 or B3, the sun is at your back. And don't forget an umbrella!
Photo Equipment: Cameras are welcome at the Ordina Open, just be friendly to the players and turn off your flash!
Miscellaneous: Bring a few pens, you may have the chance to get an autograph! And do check to make sure they work. Don't be like me: I had Jelena Jankovic signing a copy of the women's draw and the pen didn't work...
Best seating section
Favorite thing: When ordering tickets, Section B3 Tribune is the section to sit in! It's on a corner, and it's right where the players enter and exit the center court. So you can get autographs if you like, or just be close to the players. Tickets for this section cost me 40 Euros each.
