Every year I apply for Wimbledon tickets in the public ballot and without fail I don’t get anything. Anyway this year finally for the first time in ages I got lucky. Not bad tickets either, second week so generally better players who have made it further in the competition. Court number one, not centre court admittedly, but still the chance to see some big matches. Good seats as well, roughly in the middle so a decent view of all the action.
My sister is a big tennis fan and a former county number one player so I invited her along with me. We had a lovely day, saw some brilliant matches and some well known players in action, including Djokovic and the Williams sisters. We had an early lunch and arrived at the ground just after midday. You’re allowed to bring one bottle of alcohol into the grounds with you, so we bought a bottle of champagne with us which we enjoyed while watching the first match. Late afternoon we went for a traditional cream tea and then later on we had a cheeky Pimms. Thankfully the weather held out for us and we had a lovely sunny day for it, not even a hint of rain. Wimbledon always has such a lovely jovial atmosphere and we really had a pleasant day, I do so enjoying going when I’m finally successful in the ballot.
