It’ the end of June which means Wimbledon is also upon us. Since the world-famous tournament kicks off on Monday, we thought it was time to get in the mood for a spot of tennis.
 
Get the gear
Since it’s the season for it, why not crack out the tennis gear and play a round or two? Luxury sportswear label Monreal London has just launched their new TriBeCa collection in store. Talk about good timing: you'll be able to take to the courts in great style.  
 
Celebrate with Ralph Lauren
Luxury fashion label Ralph Lauren is celebrating its 10th anniversary as Official Outfitters of Wimbledon, starting with a glamourous party hosted in conjunction with Vogue earlier this week. During the tournament you’ll also be able head down to the New Bond Street store to watch the action on screen, or grab yourself a last minute outfit. 
 
Soak up the sun
No tennis tournament is ever complete without sunshine, and lots of it. Just before Wimbledon kicks off, tennis star Ana Ivanovic has been named as the face of Shiseido’s Wetforce Sunscreen. It’s important to protect yourself those UV rays if you’re planning on spending the day outside watching the matches, so remember to keep applying SPF.  
 
Watch from afar
Haven’t got tickets to Wimbledon? No fear, Coq d’Argent has got you covered. The restaurant will turn its upper terrace into a screening area where guests can watch the games on two large screens. Elaborate desserts created for the occasion include the Strawberry Centre Court and drinks are also in the spirit of all things tennis: cocktails range from Match Point to Murray’s Fashion. Sponsored by Moët & Chandon, it promises to be a lavish affair.
 
Whether you are a die-hard tennis fan, or just looking for an excuse to have some fun, the Wimbledon Championships are guaranteed to be two weeks of thrills and entertainment.
