Luggage checks and enhanced security measures in the St. Jakobshalle in Basel.
Spectators at this year’s Swiss Indoors Basel (22 to 30 October) will be checked at random at the entrances. The primary focus of these checks will be tennis fans’ luggage. As stated by the organisers, these measures are part of the tournament’s security strategy, which is reviewed and amended every year. The Swiss Indoors has based these measures on the recommendations of the ATP World Tour and the police department of the canton of Basel-Land.
