Well, that’s it for another year. Wimbledon 2017 was exhilarating and captivating. We’re already missing it but preparations for Wimbledon 2018 and the tennis hospitality are underway.
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.
The Brits achieved enviable results.
Sadly, no Andy Murray in this year’s men’s final but the prestigious event was a straight sets record breaking victory for Roger Federer who secured his 8th title on the hallowed Centre Court at the All England Club in a battle with Marin Cilic, who, after many attempts reached the final for the first time.
The match was packed with athleticism, skill, drama, tears from an injured Cilic, and immeasurably powerful crowd support for both men.
We almost had our first female in a Wimbledon singles final in 2017 but Johanna Konta was beaten at the semi final stage. Quite rightly, she’s proud to have achieved her best ever Wimbledon performance and to have been the first British female to play a semi final since Virginia Wade in 1978. Now world number 4 in the WTA rankings, can she make it to the final in 2018?
The title went to Garbine Murgurza of Spain, her victory over Venus Williams 7-5 6-0 was confident and she certainly overpowered Venus.
Our home grown stars Gordon Reid and Alfie Hewett retained the men’s wheelchair doubles title and Jordanne Whiley won the ladies wheelchair doubles with Jui Kamiji from Japan. Reid is hopeful that these successes will encourage commercial funding because the official funding from Sport England has been cut.
Jamie Murray took the mixed doubles title with Martina Hingis beating Britain’s Heather Watson who was competing with Henri Kontinen as the defending champions.
You may have been one of the several million who watched the matches from the comfort of the sofa and wondered what being at SW19 would be like. You might have spotted Federer or Agassi being shown in the hospitality areas, calmly watching how the players were progressing. Perhaps you know someone in personal or professional life who would relish being treated to a day at the All England Club.
Next year, don’t imagine. Be at Wimbledon 2018 between the 2nd -15th July. To optimise your enjoyment, book a Wimbledon hospitality package that will provide luxuries and opportunities that a standard ticket can’t.
As a quintessentially British and charming event it is always popular for corporate hospitality clients; our guests enjoy peace of mind, thanks to our expertise and experience.
In 2018, we’ll again be offering tennis hospitality in several areas at SW19, from the exceptional Debentures to the Fairway Village to the unparalleled Skyview Suites.
It’s never too early to reserve your place.
