17 Jul Wimbledon 2017
It’s certainly Wimbledon fortnight, with pop up screens appearing all over London with an abundance of pimms and strawberry stalls.
There are lots of different ways to watch the tennis ranging in price, from corporate hospitality, court tickets, ground passes or simply finding one of these screens in the sunshine like we’ve been doing most lunch times!
Hospitality at Wimbledon is very popular; picture the quintessentially English surroundings of the All England Lawn Tennis Club with a private marquee in the VIP village, with a three-course meal, first rate wines and centre court tickets with full access to the grounds.
If you’re not lucky enough to be treated to some hospitality, entering the ballot is another way to try to gain tickets to the event, not that it guarantees entry, but those lucky winners often have the chance to buy some of the best seats.
Entered the ballot and not won? All hope is not lost, as the queue opens early doors every day, where you’ll have the chance to buy ground passes or court tickets, and there’s often a great atmosphere whilst you’re queueing!
With 16 courts to choose from with a ground pass, plus watching the main courts from Henman Hill, this can sometimes be the best way to enjoy the atmosphere of the day.
If getting up early isn’t for you, the big screens around London with their pop up stalls can be another great way to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the sun. Selfridges have dedicated their entire roof top to Wimbledon for these two weeks, and Kings Cross have got their screens and deck chairs back up as well. Not to mention Camden beach, St Katherines Dock and Leadenhall Market all embracing the fortnight. Here at Seven Events, we are definitely making the most of it!
