A Day at The Tennis

Firstly, let me apologise that this post is late but I felt that is still deserved to go up.

Anyway, back to the blog.

Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. It is the only major tournament that is still played on grass, the game’s original surface, which gave the game its original name of “lawn tennis”.
I’ve been to Wimbledon once before but I managed to get tickets this year and obviously had to go.

We were blessed with glorious sunshine and so leisurely made our way to Wimbledon with a picnic and a chilled bottle of something fizzy. 

We began with a wander round the grounds, soaking up the sun and admiring the beautiful flowers that surround Centre Court. 

We watched a few of the Junior games on the outdoor courts. 

and admired the Men's Singles Board.

Unfortunately I couldn't get tickets for Centre Court but we did watch some great games on Court 1.

Wimbledon is set amongst beautiful grounds and on such a lovely day, Henman Hill was full to bursting. 
On the day that we went, we were lucky enough to watch Djokovic vs Dimitrov and then Federer vs Raonic from our spot on the hill. 

Trying my luck at a bit of umpiring. Career change maybe?

I cannot recommended at day at Wimbledon enough. 
You can buy tickets nearer the time but they are pretty expensive. And by 'pretty expensive' what I really mean is, they are a lot of money. can enter the ballot. You won't know what you're going to get until nearer the time and you only have to pay for the tickets that you want. 
Even if you get a day pass, I promise you won't be disappointed. Just remember to get a glass of Pimms and some strawberries and cream....A day at Wimbledon is not complete without that.
