Stuff you want to know...

    • Court access is subject to Staples/Clippers approval!
  • No identifiable logos or messages on clothes/accessories, or you may need to turn them inside out. (If you can recognize the logo or word from across a regular sized room, it could be too big to be filmed.)


Valuables, go light! (I use these opportunities to bring fanny packs back in style!). We will likely leave our belongings in the backstage tunnels. No one actively supervises our things and no lockers are provided. Keep it simple. Leave the precious stuff at home; bring only what you need.
