The Wimbledon Championships, or simply Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis championship in the world and is a highlight of the summer calendar in London. If you are attending this year, why not travel to the All England Club at Wimbledon in an executive car driven by a uniformed chauffeur? For such chauffeur services in London, look no further than Chauffeur One, a leading provider of executive cars with professionally trained drivers.
The 2015 Wimbledon Championships will start on the 29th June and end two weeks later on the 12th July. Each year, the championships attract the best men and women players in the world, as befits one of the Grand Slam tennis events. The tournament also plays host to matches for younger players, as well as doubles and mixed doubles matches.
Wimbledon is the only one of the four Grand Slam tournaments played on grass. The tournament has a number of other unique features, not the least of which is the eating of strawberries and cream by the spectators and the wearing of white by the players; the rules only allow a small amount of colour in a player’s on-court clothing.
The Royal family is closely associated with the tournament and some royals will be seen attending games on Centre Court. The tournament also attracts many celebrities. You will not want to miss the experience of attending this glamorous tournament and to arrive by luxury car, with your own, personal driver, makes the occasion even more stylish.
Home interest in Wimbledon often reaches phenomenal levels when UK players do well. This has been helped in no small part by the success of Andy Murray, who won the men’s singles in 2013 and who will be one of the favourites in 2015.
The district of Wimbledon itself also has many other tourist sights worth visiting. Wimbledon Common is one of London’s largest areas of common land and Wimbledon Stadium holds greyhound racing as well as stock car racing. The Grade II-listed New Wimbledon Theatre hosts productions throughout the year. Those travelling to the area with their family can visit the Polka Children’s Theatre, which puts on shows for children aged up to 13 years.
For those Russian-speakers that prefer to communicate in their own language, finding a Russian-speaking taxi driver in London is not easy, but at Chauffeur One we can provide drivers fluent in the language. Our tailor-made services do not end there as we can draw up an itinerary of places for you to visit if you are planning a trip. We also specialise in airport and seaport transfers.
The luxury vehicles have complimentary Wi-Fi on board as well as a range of magazines to keep you entertained while travelling. Wimbledon is very well-connected by public transport, given its proximity to central London, but why experience the stress of driving yourself through heavy traffic and then spend time looking for a parking space when your chauffeur can do all the hard work for you?
