Local Tennis Leagues goes to Wimbledon

Everyone's Wimbledon is different. Here's what Local Tennis Leagues took away when it made the trip down to SW19 this week! (Click the bars to see the pictures and commentaries)

As though there was not enough on court drama already in the Kyrigos-Nadal match, in the middle of the last set, a cork popped from a bottle of bubbly in the stands . . .and landed at the feet of a baffled Kyrigos. Amanda and Pete from Leamington Spa (above), who were sitting directly in front of us, were red faced with embarrassment at what they had accidentally done, but raised a glass to the match.

Something to drink?

Robinsons is the second oldest supplier to the Wimbledon Championships (the oldest is Slazenger) and it’s offering free samples of its rather nice new flavour Strawberry, Cucumber and Mint drink (picture below right). Maybe take along a re-cyclable receptable for a guilt-free and refreshingly-fruity thirst-quenching taste
