Our Ace Adventure to Wimbledon

Late July brought an exhilarating adventure for tennis enthusiasts at Loveday, as we set off on a private tour of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum. The anticipation was palpable as we got ready for the tour which explored the rich history and legendary tales of the world's most prestigious tennis championship.

Our knowledgeable guide treated our Members with fascinating stories about iconic players and had the privilege of visiting Centre Court and exploring behind-the-scenes areas of the historic grounds where some of the greatest matches in tennis history were played.

We stepped into the inner workings of Wimbledon and learned about the preparations that go into hosting such a grand event. The meticulous attention to detail and dedication to preserving the heritage of tennis was truly impressive.



No trip to Wimbledon is complete without a visit to their impressive museum. As we ventured
through its halls, we were transported back in time. The museum's collection showcased everything from vintage tennis equipment to cherished memorabilia of iconic players, leaving us in awe of the sport's evolution over the years.

Our Members loved reliving the defining moments of tennis history with highlights including:

  • Learning about the first Wimbledon Championships held in 1877 which marked the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world.
  • The longest match- recapping on the 2010 marathon match between John Isner vs. Nicolas Mahut which spanned three days and a fifth set.
  • Billie Jean King vs Bobby Riggs – a pivotal moment for gender equality when Billie defeated Bobby, showcasing the talent of female players in a “Battle of the Sexes” match.
  • The Royal Box – reflecting on the role that royals have played at Wimbledon, adding to the tournament’s prestige.
