QUESTION 2 CONTINUED
BURLINGTON FIELDS – THE HOME OF FIRST CLASS TENNIS
Since 1979 Burlington Field has been one of the most important sporting events in the western world, attracting world class players and receiving media coverage from 120 countries around the globe. The festival runs over a fortnight, always the last 2 weeks in July, and draws huge crowds of visitors, hoping to enjoy the thrills of the tournament and the lively excitement of the crowded bars and eating places. There is always the chance, especially if you keep your wits about you, of rubbing shoulders, or even sharing a table, with a star of the tennis world!
The enormous complex covers over a square kilometre. There are 8 entrance points from the spacious car parks and 2 from the rail station. A further entrance point is available to people arriving on the riverboats or by helicopter. The helicopter landing point has been very frequently used in the last 5 years.
Fifteen courts provide enough top class tennis for the appetites of the most demanding fans. With the exception of Champions' Court, which admits booked-in-advance badgeholders only, visitors can move freely from one court to another and have access to all but the Members’ Restaurant. Such names as Winners' Gallery, the Ball and Racquet, the Seafood Bar and The Tie Break Bar (this last being really popular with younger enthusiasts) draw in the customers from the time the gates open at 1000 hours until the last match has been played around 2100.
All this movement of so many people inevitably brings its problems. An army of officials, waiters, security men etc is needed to ensure the smooth running of the festival, and, as always there are occasions when matters go wrong. Recent festivals have seen significant increases in the number of counterfeit-ticket sellers, and pickpockets have created their share of misery, as bags and wallets have gone missing. There are signs warning people, but it seems everyone can lose concentration for a few seconds – and that is all a thief needs!
The facts and figures below bear out what an immense and complex affair the festival has become:
In 1997 there were:
1,400 caterers representing 200 firms providing food and drink in over 80 outlets
330 guards and security men, controlling entrances and exits, patrolling crowds and dealing with problems like lost children, people taken ill, and other difficulties
300 court officials, including 45 umpires who cover 2 matches a day, and teams of line judges
230 drivers, there for the exclusive use of players and officials coming to and from the festival. Drivers need a clean licence and, above all, a good knowledge of the area's streets and hotels.
Many other workers, from cleaners to programme sellers, make up this well-drilled army.
Situation: You have been asked to check the details of a number of office-cleaning agencies.
