I say old chap; what say you to a spot of tennis? Splendid. You simply must try Wimbledon next time you’re in London in the summer. It’s simply spiffing. The oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world you know. Good sports from the likes of international stars and all. But by golly, if we don’t get tickets inside then I say dash it we can head for the outside lawns where they put on a jolly good show for the masses.

See you at Centre Court

Wimbledon, the oldest and most prestigious Grand Slam tennis tournament attracting millions of viewers from across the world. Whether you’re looking to score centre court tickets to the finals or you’re too late but don’t want to miss out on the fun; there’s something for everyone when Wimbledon comes around. Held at the All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, London, the event started off as a garden party match in 1877.

Today, strict rules still apply for Wimbledon including dress codes for players including Serena Williams, Martina Hingis and Todd Woodbridge (and recently retired Lleyton Hewitt) who have all won Wimbledon singles in the past. Still, with you’re still guaranteed a crackin’ good show and some world-class tennis at one of the world’s most favourite sporting events. If you don’t get a ticket, head to Murray Mound for some great atmosphere, cheep entry and a spot of tennis on the big screen.
