From 27 June to 10 July 2016, the iconic Wimbledon Tennis Championships will take place.  Millions of people around the world will watch top class players battling it out on the courts. It’s one of the longest sporting tournaments in the world. What could be more quintessentially English than Wimbledon fortnight? The Championships began in 1877 and held at the All England Tennis Club ever since. It’s the only Lawn Tennis tournament that actually takes place on a real lawn!

It’s a great opportunity for including tennis themed products in your summer marketing plans. Wimbledon represents a traditional English summer. From strawberries and cream with champagne to raincoats and umbrellas! It’s also a sought after event on the summer hospitality circuit.

Corporate entertaining at Wimbledon is a must for top businesses to impress valued clients.  We have a comprehensive range of quality items to brand, ideal for events such as Wimbledon.

Around 40,000 tennis balls will be used during the tournament. Did you know that instead of throwing used balls away they are given to the Surrey Wildlife Trust? The balls are then re-used as nests for harvest mice.  We can provide tennis balls branded with your corporate name or message in a choice of colours. These are also a great idea for tennis club tournaments or training days. Custom printed Tennis Ball Lip Balms are perfect for spectators.

We have a great choice of Catering & Hospitality products. Many Bars and Restaurants will be showing matches on big screens throughout the fortnight. Take the opportunity to give away branded items. For drinks promotions, offer personalised glasses or Mason Jars as souvenirs. Our Posh Plastic Champagne Flutes are ideal for outdoor catering or picnics. Branded fleece blankets and cool bags are practical for watching matches screened in parks or open spaces.

Over 28,000 kilos of English strawberries and 7,000 litres of cream are eaten at Wimbledon! Strawberry themed branded products will be right on trend during June. Fruity lip balms in tins or pots, or hand creams and other cosmetics, all printed with your details. Strawberry stress shapes are perfect to squeeze during tense moments!

The Royal Family are keen tennis fans and have attended Wimbledon since 1907. The Duke and Duchess of Kent present the winners trophies every year. We have eye catching engraved Crystal Sports Trophies and medals for all sporting events. Tennis clubs can encourage members to feel like Wimbledon winners with amazing trophies.

Wimbledon players are required to dress in all white clothing during matches. This tradition has been upheld, despite a few attempts to add coloured trims and details!  For your tennis club we have quality cotton polo shirts and sports tops in many colours. These include yellow, pink or green as well as white, all for personalisation.

And finally, what is the true meaning of 'Love' or more to the point why is a zero score in tennis referred to as ‘love’? The popular theory says it's derived from the French ‘oeuf’ for egg (a zero is egg shaped). This is similar to the origin of the term 'duck in cricket, as in a duck's egg, which implies that the batsman got out without scoring.

Here at Navillus we would love you to take advantage of Wimbledon fortnight to boost your business! Make it  ‘game, set and match’ to you and take a look at our pages of Promotional Product Themes here.
