Still living up to the sport’s original name of ‘lawn tennis’, Wimbledon is the only Major still played on grass with grounds that cover over 42 acres, including the car parks. With a capacity for 38,500 spectators, Wimbledon 2018 is expected to be awash with tennis fans, budding athletes and families looking for an exciting day of sporting action.
Not only can you join in the tradition of eating strawberries and cream in the sunshine but the grounds host a fine selection of food and drink for you to enjoy throughout the event. For table service The Wingfield Restaurant provides a luncheon and afternoon tea, whereas The Baseline Diner serves a delicious hot and cold menu including burgers, seafood, salads and drinks.
Located under No.1 Court, near Gate 3, is the British Tennis Experience hosted by the Lawn Tennis Association. Whether you want to take part in interactive tennis games and competitions or simply chat to friendly LTA representatives, the whole family can learn more about the history of British Tennis and how to get involved.
Also available at Gate 3 is the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum & Tour, where you can discover what made Wimbledon the most coveted title in tennis and the history of this iconic event. Visitors may also take a tour of the grounds and gain access to restricted areas normally closed to the public.
With five major trophies to compete for throughout the Championships, experience courtside action as it happens. Although applications for the Public Ballot draw for tickets have already closed, Wimbledon remains one of the very few major UK sporting events where you can still buy premium tickets on the day of play.
