A fabulous day at the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championship 2017

After about 14 years in London, I realised this year, I still had never visited the Wimbledon Tournament and experienced the unique atmosphere. We could have secured tickets with l’Homme via his tennis club but with our 3 little ones, the logistic and childcare cost would have made it a really pricey experience.

So when a group of photo enthusiasts organised a meetup to visit the place and spend the day out there I was all ears. However, as the date to make our way to the tournament got closer, lots of people started commenting on the groups’ forum that the queues to get tickets to access the grounds on the day were totally crazy and my hopes started to fade. I nearly did not attend the meetup feeling less than optimistic but I still went. Sometimes, the stars align and by a course of incredible circumstances, my mates Matt, John & Joseph were given the incredible chance to enter the grounds which was for me totally unbelievable. To put things into perspective, 9000 people camped overnight on a daily basis to get access to the tournament!!!
