(PRWEB UK) 25 June 2013
The oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world gets underway this week for the 127th time. Making up one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, along with the Australian Open, French Open and US Open, The Wimbledon Championships sees the game’s major players battle it out for the elusive title over two weeks.
Taking place from 24 June – 7 July, the tournament remains a highlight in the British sporting calendar which sees the nation embrace the Wimbledon spirit. ‘Murray mania’ is set to grip the nation once again as the British number 1 tries to repeat last year’s success and reach the final. Whether it’s queuing for ‘Henman Hill’, eating strawberries and cream or picking up a racquet and hitting a few balls at the local tennis court, the British public will be supporting the Scot whatever the weather. Taking inspiration from Wimbledon, Sovereign is offering fantastic five star luxury holidays to five of its best tennis hotels.
