God, I am gonna need soooo much holiday for this and the World Cup!
Noticed the other day that Wimbledon will NOT be shown on Sky in pubs and other public places (how can they differentiate between them and home users, unless pub-owners are specifically told not to show it) because most folk will only be interested in the footie.
I've never been to Wimbledon but I know I'd love it - it's too far away now - and once we we were there I wouldn't want to come home until the tourney was over.
I was working in London in 1962 and 1963 and used to rush down to Wimbledon after work when I could.
You got into the standing area, known as the "sheep pen", for half-price after 5 pm (2s:6d = 12.5p). No Henman Hill then, and it's all-seater now anyway. The only food on offer was dodgy hotdogs, cartons of insipid tea or coffee and Wall's unimaginative plain ice-cream, but it was great. Saw some good matches and had the privilege of watching Rod Laver play on two occasions. The last time I went was in 1969 when I was on holiday. Oh happy days!
