Attending the hallowed grounds of Wimbledon is the pinnacle of any avid tennis fan's dream. The oldest tennis tournament and the only major played on grass, Wimbledon's intimate and exclusive venue makes it the most prestigious Grand Slam on the tennis calendar. World Tennis Travel has partnered with Grand Slam Tennis Tours and offering a tennis vacation and tour package to Wimbledon so you can get the royal treatment; access to private hospitality steps away from the All England Club, fantastic seats for Center Court and/or Court No. 1, the chance to play tennis on grass at the exclusive Roehampton Club, and much more.
Guests will stay at The Hari Hotel London, a 4-star boutique hotel in the heart of the chic Belgravia district. The Hari features stylish, modern rooms and open spaces, a fine restaurant and a rooftop bar for post-tennis relaxation. Centrally located and just a few steps from the Sloane Square Underground stop, it’s precisely where you need to be.
At the beginning of your tour you will attend a Welcome Dinner hosted by Grand Slam Tennis Tours. The dinner will give guests an opportunity to share a table and conversation with past grand slam champions, as well as the chance to meet fellow travelers and connect with your tour hosts. Welcome Dinners are hosted at fine local restaurants within short walking distance from The Hari Hotel.
While you're in London you'll be kept busy attending the tennis at the AELTC and relaxing at the Grand Slam Tennis Tours Hospitality House, but you'll still have plenty of time to explore everything London has to offer.
From the All-England Club you'll be able to explore the quaint streets of Wimbledon Village, popping into cafes and restaurants, browsing the pop-up shops from tennis companies in town for the two-week event, and likely getting a sighting of some pros around town.
Beyond Wimbledon Village, London is at your fingertips and the neighborhood of Belgravia is your homebase. Want to catch some theater? London's West End is widely regarding as the finest theater district in the world. Trying to decide which sightseeing you should explore? Good luck choosing. Whether you’re touring the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and the Eye of London, or heading out to visit Hampton Court, Windsor Castle or Stonehenge, there is a bounty of cultural sites to explore.
Beyond sightseeing, London offers a cosmopolitan experience featuring world-class food, great music and concerts, and a vibrant, multicultural community.
The AELTC grounds feature two primary show courts, Centre Court and No. 1 Court and numerous other courts around the grounds, all steeped in tradition. Your tickets will be official Debenture tickets, which are unique to Wimbledon and the only issued tickets that are legally allowed to be bought and sold. Your Debenture seats will be some of the best in the house and provide exclusive access to the Debenture Lounges inside Centre Court and No.1 Court, where drinks are refreshments are served and where it is a prime spot to wait out a rain delay. (Currently there is a roof over Centre Court and starting in 2018 there will be a roof over No.1 Court.)
It's important to note that Wimbledon allows for re-entry. You're welcome to stay on the grounds throughout the day, but many guests choose to return to the Hospitality House in between matches for a snack or to drop off/pick-up a jacket as the weather changes.
"I had a great time! The location is amazing and the resort is spectacular. I really want to go back next year with a group of friends and do a tennis camp. I plan to make the Forte Village tennis holiday a part of an annual traditional. Thank you again for all your help!"
