The World Cup is in play, but several Brits and tennis fans around the world are ditching their pints and pub grub for Pimm’s, champagne, strawberries and cream: in case you somehow missed it, it’s the Wimbledon Championships. Most of the year Wimbledon is just a charming part of West London, but just about everyone knows that it’s also home to the oldest tennis tournament in the world.
The annual competition is one of the four major tennis events known as ‘Grand Slam’ events, and is the only one still played on grass as the game was originally played. There are several courts and many games occurring at once, but every court is equal as the number of blades of grass on each court is counted, trimmed and managed annually.
Wimbledon players traditionally wear white, and this year the dress code has been tightened to ensure that players wear almost exclusively white. If you’re hoping to catch some games head out to Wimbledon or turn on your TV this Saturday, as no matches will be played Sunday. Matches resume on Monday, building up to the finals which will determine the new (or possibly repeat) Wimbledon champions.
