About the experience

Experience Summary:

Walk in the footsteps of tennis legends such as Venus and Serena Williams, Roger Federer and Andy Murray! This highly unique experience, led by a Team GB ex- pro, is made up of a special tour of the Wimbledon area & village, followed by a tennis lesson in the exclusive training grounds of the world-famous Wimbledon grass courts.

Detailed description:

First Hour:

On-foot guided tour of the Wimbledon Village area exploring the London neighbourhood that’s home to the All England club. You’ll see some of the popular off-court locations favourited by the tournament’s stars when they take time out from competing. There’s lots of tennis history & trivia to indulge in here; with the Wimbledon area providing a home-from-home to the players during their time pre, during and post The Championships. We’ll see some of the  places that the players choose to prepare for, commiserate or celebrate their tournament performances.

Second Hour:

A tennis session in the training grounds beside the the main Wimbledon courts. The focus of the session is “finding your perfect serve”. You’ll get some specialist knowledge as well as the expertise that your host has earned through decades of training and playing as a Team GB pro. Guests will come away feeling truly inspired and perhaps even ready to take on a Grand Slam themselves!


About the host

Hello! I’m Charlie: an ex-professional team GB tennis player. After my career came to its natural end in the early 90s, I decided to turn my passion for the sport into teaching it! I’ve had over forty years experience in the tennis world and thrive upon sharing it with anyone interested in the game, no matter their expertise.

I’ve always loved tennis with Wimbledon having a special place in my heart. From a very young age I remember my family and I watching The Championships along with the rest of the country each year. I started playing tennis aged six and was scouted by a tennis coach to join the junior GB team at aged eleven. As a young teenager, tennis became my whole focus, training almost five days a week. From then I progressed to competing locally, then nationally and soon after internationally.

Tennis is not only a fantastic sport but a great way to keep fit and test your levels of discipline - no matter your age. This experience is created with the hope that the inspiration of Wimbledon and its phenomenal heritage can ignite passion for the game in anyone who joins. I’m excited to pick up a racket with you all!
