There's nothing like visiting The Championships, Wimbledon. Wimbledon is the most refined Grand Slam today. Players must bow and curtsy before the royal box where usually the Duchess sits. The last time the queen made an appearance at Wimbledon was in 1977 and they still await her return.
Wimbledon is one of the most historic and most important tennis tournaments in the world's history. It is the last grand slam remaining on grass after the Australian and US open switched to hard court.
Wimbledon's Center Court is a great stadium. It holds 375 seats for the members, a royal box, and the rest for other spectators. The overall seating capacity in the Grounds is around 32,000. Outside of Center court is the hill with a big screen TV for people who couldn't get inside the stadium to still be apart of the matches.
More than 750 writers and international radio reporters from over 52 countries annually attend The Championships. People from around the world come to cheer on their player from their country. Times have changed and now players from around the world come to enter this magnificent tournament. Tradition is still important but still the place is changing to catch up with the times.
The stadium could be expensive for the regular Joe out there but it is well worth it to become part of the world's tennis history. The have many bars and restaurants to facilitate all players and spectators.
Wimbledon is one of the only tournaments to have boys and girls as the real ball boys and ball girls. They train for 6 months prior to the event and become refined. There are almost 182 ball boys and ball girls that go through this training.
If you have the chance to visit Wimbledon I highly suggest it. It is a magnificent place to be to enjoy the history of tennis and a long line of tradition.
