Itinerary

A sample itinerary, depending on the package chosen, could look like this:

Day 1: Welcome to London
Arrive at the The Hari London Belgravia Hotel a modern and contemporary hotel which embodies the charming, old-world heritage of its London neighborhood, a residential area known for its many embassies and ambassador residences. You'll find the central location affords a visit to Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, the V&A, British Museum and the National Gallery without straying far afield at all.

On your first day you'll enjoy a either a welcome dinner and or lunch and tour orientation. You'll have an opportunity to bump elbows with past Grand Slam champions, our staff, and other tennis enthusiasts from around the world.

Day 2, 3, 4: Watch Tennis and Play Tennis
You'll spend your next few days enjoying what you primarily came to London for - watching world-class tennis at Wimbledon! From your exclusive debenture seats on either on Center Court or Court #1, you'll have a chance to see all your favorite players battle it out at the third Grand Slam of the year.

Day 5: City Tour
After a good night's rest, you'll spend the next day touring the two most iconic castles of London, Windsor Palace and Hampton Court. Here you will have the opportunity to tour the grounds, experience each castle complete with private Tour Guide explanations of each site.

After Windsor Palace and Hampton court your next stop will be the unique private club Roehampton, here we will have the opportunity to play tennis on grass followed by a light dinner on the Roehampton grounds!


Grand Slam Tours Hospitality House


The Grand Slam Tennis Tours Hospitality House is a lovely English home a short walk from the All-England Club gates. Fully-staffed throughout the fortnight, it's where all guests and friends are hosted, whether it's to sit and enjoy brunch in the garden, to drop off a jacket before you hustle off to tennis, or to relax with a post-match glass of wine.

Food is provided by private chef Milli Taylor, who joins the group every day to prepare not only brunch and afternoon tea, but refreshing Pimm's cups, beautiful bowls of strawberries and cream and other fun and delicious treats.

Wimbledon Tennis Vacation Guest House

In the morning, guests are welcome anytime after 10am to collect their daily tickets, enjoy brunch in the garden or, if the weather isn’t cooperating, in the solarium. Some guests stay into the late morning to kick-off the matches on TV before leisurely joining the Centre Court crowd, and others like to be the first through the gates when they open. Since Wimbledon allows re-entry, guests often drop by in-between matches for a quick drink, to have a snack in the garden, or to shed their jacket if the day has warmed up. If you’ve made an appointment to play tennis with a GSTT pro at the local courts, you're more than welcome to shower and change upstairs.

This past year, guests came home after evening matches to find Sam [Querrey] and Steve [Johnson] eating BBQ chicken and relaxing in the backyard; together we all popped the magnum bottle of champagne that Steve had taken home after his recent victory in Nottingham. The next day, the very same guests sat in official Debenture seats to watch those play on Centre Court. Upon returning to the Hospitality House, Fred Stolle was there on the couch, having a sandwich, talking about the match. These are not standard tourism experiences, which is exactly as intended.

Details

  • The Hospitality House is open Monday, July 3rd through Sunday, July 16th, 2017, from 10am and until 1 hour after play ends.
  • Most Guests arrive via the Tube departing the Wimbledon Park stop, while others arrive by taxi or private car. From the house, it's a short walk to the All-England Club gates.
  • Access: All Grand Slam Tennis Tours package guests are welcome throughout their stay. Ticket-only guests are welcome on the day of their ticket. Hospitality-only guests must present a ticket to that day’s event.

You can visit the Hospitality House by booking one of the packages, through ticket-only purchases, via a daily Hospitality House pass (limited per day), or as a special event guest. To learn more enquire using the contact form on the right.

Wimbledon Tennis Tour Seating

Who Plays Where? 
The Show Courts are Center Court, Court 1 and Court 2. For the first nine days of the tournament, top players are scheduled here. In the second week, half of the women’s and men’s quarters are played on Court 1. Court 3 is partially ticketed, and also has a tremendous lineup throughout the event. Enjoy unlimited access to the matches being played on courts 4-19, where seats are available first-come, first-serve. 

Why Don’t We Stay in Wimbledon?
The town of Wimbledon, a suburb about 8 miles from London, offers few diversions outside of tennis. The London hotels chosen are close to Wimbledon–less than 30 minutes by Tube. We will escort you to Wimbledon on your first day of tennis. Guests at The Hari London Belgravia Hotel are just a few minutes from major museums, Harrod's and Harvey Nichols department stores. London theaters are 20 minutes by Tube.

How Flexible are Tour/Travel Dates?
Create your own tennis vacation! If you don't see a tour that fits your needs, tell us! We can customize a tour for you. You can easily enhance your stay in London by adding hotel nights or other tour options.

When Does the Tennis Start?
The first 8 days: 1:00 p.m., Center Court and Court 1; 11:30am, other courts. The second week: 1:00 p.m., Center Court; 12:00 noon or 1:00 p.m., other courts, depending on the number of matches to be played. The Grand Slam staff will advise you of any changes in starting times. Matches will continue until the day’s schedule is completed or until dark (approximately 8:30 p.m.)

Is There a Rain Refund Policy?
The All England Club's rain refunds: "No play taking place before 6:00 p.m.: a refund of 1/2 the face value of the ticket. No play at all: a full refund of the face value of the ticket." The face value will not cover the actual cost of the tickets in our packages. For a more substantial refund, Grand Slam Tennis Tours offers rain insurance available for a nominal fee. The insurance is only paid if no play takes place the entire day. Enquire for further details.

"My experience at Melbourne Park was awesome! I had a great coach and just being on the courts where the Australian Open players train was an amazing and surreal experience. Thank you so much for helping me with my reservations. It was an awesome holiday experience and I will highly recommend it to my tennis friends!"
