UNITED KINGDOM / WIMBLEDON

Day #166 : Wimbledon

Now I know Wimbledon season is well and truly over, but that is not stopping me from bragging about going.

I was lucky enough to be given tickets to the final day of Wimbledon. This was such a great surprise as I’ve grown up loving to play and watch tennis.

My cousin, who I invited to attend with me, didn’t have the same upbringing. Not a huge sports fan, not really into tennis.

Upon entering the grounds, we made a bee line for the Wimbledon shop to stock up on a bit of merchendise. I will not lie, the entire store is a rip off. Everything is so over priced, but hey it’s Wimbledon. As I am a fan of caps, and I am poor, I bought a cute navy Wimbledon cap (£22).

Although the whole day was filled with finals from various competitions, they all just seemed like the pre match entertainment for the Men’s Final.

As I love my dear country, Australia, we went and watched the Boy’s Final. Not a lot of atmosphere, or people watching, but it was cool to be in such a big stadium.

Unfortunately our tickets did not give us access to the court that the Men’s Final, with Andy Murray, was on. But watching on a screen outside the court was, what I tell myself to be, just as great.

Being at Wimbledon, drinking a Pimms, watching the Men’s Final, with Andy Murray playing is something pretty amazing. The atmosphere was so incredible, you would never believe you were watching tennis.

Now as I mentioned earlier, my cousin was not a sports person. By the end of the day she was getting so into the tennis. She didn’t even want to get Pimms, my shout, because she didn’t want to miss a thing.

I had such an enjoyable time and would recommend to anyone. Although the whole outing is extravagant and expensive, it has to be done.

Love J
