Wimbledon Begins

Wimbledon Begins

It’s summer and that means it’s Wimbledon time! The first ever Wimbledon was on the 9th July, 1877.  Since then, the games have been held at the All-England Club in Wimbledon, London, and are a symbol of British sport. Do tune in to watch some of the games live on TV with your Pimm’s in hand, some strawberries on standby and a bit dollop of cream to accompany.

Don’t miss out on any of the games, keep a track of the games – here.
