Love Tennis, Love Wimbledon

Wimbledon is South-West London is home to the World’s oldest and most famous tennis tournament. Each year in July players enter the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Association competition in the first 2-weeks of July.

If you study English at Wimbledon School of English, you can walk up to the Championships after class and try to get a ‘returns’ ticket. These are tickets to the main courts handed back in by people who cannot stay in the late afternoon/evening. You could end up on Centre Court!

When you visit the Championships make sure you try the traditional strawberries and cream. Apparently in 2017 fans ate over 34,000 kg of strawberries and 10,000 litres of cream….in 2-weeks!!
