Anyone in the least bit interested in tennis will have his or her favourite player. They will be hoping their hero will win the tournament they are playing in, and will be thrilled when they do. There are some competitions that raise more interest than others, the AEGON Championships being one of them.

Whilst we may have bid farewell to the tennis season in the UK and the top flight players have set to work in the US and Canadian ATP and WTA tournaments, that’s no reason to forget tennis for the foreseeable future. You should be considering your options for 2018.
2017 was a peculiar year for the Aegon Tennis Championships as several of the big name players like Milos Raonic, Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray were knocked out of the tournament on the Tuesday. The finalists, Marin Cilic and Feliciano Lopez, both having seen a Queen’s Club final before, were left to fight through a tough match which Lopez eventually won. Jamie Murray won the men’s doubles with Bruno Soares.
We believe that our private tennis hospitality and corporate hospitality clients were more than a little impressed by their experiences and it was our pleasure to deliver excellence. Hopefully, we’ll welcome you again in 2018 to one of the Wimbledon hospitality spaces.
Wimbledon is a highly prestigious event which for two weeks captures the nation’s imagination and becomes the focus for longstanding tennis devotees and new fans who may have been drawn to the tournament and in to playing the sport thanks to the success of the British players.
