Search for cheap hotels near All England Lawn Tennis Club
Tennis in England conjures up summery thoughts of Pimms, strawberries and cream and a rather well heeled audience, which often includes members of the Royal Family. There are several tennis clubs in London, but the official UK home of tennis is the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, south west London. The Wimbledon championships are attended by thousands of visitors each year, who book tickets well in advance and queue for hours to get tickets, to see some of the world's best players battle it out on the courts.
"A highly prestigious event"
The Wimbledon Championship is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. It is a highly prestigious event, one of the four Majors in the world, alongside the Australian Open, French Open and US Open. The Championship originated in 1888, when the Club opened, but the first tournament only included the Gentlemen's Singles, an event that continues to this day. Nowadays, Wimbledon takes place over two weeks in June and July, and includes five main events, the Gentlemen's Singles, Ladies' Singles, Gentlemen's Doubles, Ladies' Doubles and Mixed Doubles, alongside an array of Junior events and Invitation events. All events are single-elimination tournaments, and whilst winners from the previous year have been granted 'byes' to reach the final round in the past, this has recently changed to ensure a fair competition.
"Legendary players, including Andre Agassi, Maria Sharapova and Rafael Nadal"
Many legendary players have competed at Wimbledon, including Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Rafael Nadal, Boris Becker, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf and more. Wimbledon represents the upper echelons of the game, showcasing future and current champions, competing for the Gentlemen's Singles Cup, Venus Rosewater Dish and prize money reaching into the millions, which is why the event has such an esteemed reputation. As opposed to the other great British pastime, football, Wimbledon games have an air of refinement surrounding them, which is most likely due to the presence of royalty. Her Majesty the Queen, The Prince of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have all attended the event in past years alongside a coterie of other royals, and if the Queen or Prince of Wales is in attendance, players are required to bow or curtsy to the Royal Box.
"Relive winning moments"
The All England Lawn Tennis Club also has a museum you can visit, even when Wimbledon has finished, where you can learn about the history of the game in the UK and pick up some surprising facts about the Championships as well as reliving winning moments. You can access the Club via Wimbledon tube station, which is on the southwest branch of the district line and you can travel to the Station from Waterloo in about 15 minutes via the overground service. There are plenty of hotels in the area to cater for visiting fans, but they do get very busy during the Championships, so it is strongly advised to book well in advance. The Holiday Inn Express Hotel offers comfortable and competitively priced 3-star accommodation close to Colliers Wood Station. The Antoinette Hotel is a 4-star establishment with a lively atmosphere and luxurious rooms. Cannizaro House is an extraordinarily grand hotel, housed in a Georgian mansion, which is a bit pricier, but worth a splurge for a special trip, and the Wimbledon Hotel is a cheerful, well-appointed bed and breakfast.
