Wimbledon

Ask anyone what the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world is and the chances are that they will say Wimbledon.

The oldest tournament in the world, Wimbledon has been held at the All England Club since 1877 and is the only one of the Grand Slam tennis tournaments to be played on grass.

Wimbledon has become one of the sporting highlights of every summer and generally begins in the first week of July each year.

Whilst tennis has moved on over the years, Wimbledon remains true to the original traditions, with competitors playing generally in white clothing and with a lack of sponsor advertising around the courts. No visit would be complete without enjoying the fans favourites of strawberries and cream, champagne and Pimms.

From 2019, Court No. 1 will join the Centre Court in having a retractable roof which will ensure that games can continue during the rain, or when the light starts to fail, thereby guaranteeing the spectator pretty much a full day’s tennis action.

SGH Sporting Events have regularly been putting together all-inclusive packages to provide clients with the ultimate in tennis entertainment. If you are a Wimbledon fanatic, or simply want to experience one of the greatest annual events in the sporting calendar, then look no further.
