We've compiled some fun facts and a collection of looks that will be sure to impress your friends as the tournament continues.
A Tradition Of Excellence
- Wimbledon is the world's oldest tennis tournament, dating all the way back to 1877.
- There is no sponsored advertising allowed on the court - a departure from most popular sporting events with fully-packed stadiums.
- Roger Federer holds the most men's titles with 8. Martina Navratilova tops the list for the ladies with 9.
- It's always played on grass courts, and the only Grand Slam tournament that is.
Serve Up An Ace
Wimbledon sells over 200,000 Pimm's cups every single year. Here's our fool-proof recipe for serving up the perfect glass:
- 2 Ounces of Pimm's
- 3 Ounces of ginger ale
- 6 mint leaves
- A cucumber slice
Fill a tall glass with ice, combine the first 3 ingredients and garnish with with the cucumber. (Extra points if you muddle the mint with a splash of ginger ale ahead of time).
Look Like a Champ
