Wimbledon Week

Vintage Pair of Wooden Tennis Rackets with Wood Press by PickleVintage

I'm not much of a tennis fan and the thought of running around a tennis court fills me with horror but I have to admit I do quite like the way we Brits get excited about Wimbledon. Henman Hill, Murray Mound we love to get behind our players.

 Did you know that it's the oldest tennis tournament in the world. It started in 1877. I've never been but I'm sure I would enjoy some strawberries and cream washed down with a glass or two of Pimms. I love this tennis inspired set of stone coasters.

Did you know the total prize fund this year is a jaw dropping £22 million. Suddenly my boys might be enrolled in tennis lessons!

My final tennis inspired item today is this fantastic upcycled change purse. What a fabulous idea!

    1. Isn't that the coolest. They could have a nice little sideline making these out of old Wimbledon balls that had the match details attached. What a great gift for a tennis fan!

  3. Thank you Ceraminic. I enjoyed the research.
