Tennis offers a thrilling day out; whether it’s at intimate venues like the Stoke Park Country Club for the Boodles Challenge or the majestic Wimbledon with its singles, doubles, juniors, wheelchair and seniors’ championships, enjoy a quintessentially British day out.
2019’s tour should see Andy Murray gaining ground on his rivals after a tentative comeback; warming up for the US Open with just 3 ATP tour matches played since his January operation, he achieved success in early rounds at the Washington Open in July 2018; Murray beat Mackenzie McDonald and Kyle Edmund and his third-round match win against Marius Copil finished at 03:02a.m. with emotions running high. Murray then retired from the competition and the next tournament, the Rogers Cup in Toronto, to focus on his recovery.
Speaking after the Copil match, he confirmed: “I’m exhausted after playing so much over the past four days, having not competed on the hard courts for 18 months…I also need to be careful and to listen to my body as I come back from a long-term injury.”
He was awarded a wildcard for the Cincinnati Open commencing on 13th August.
Meanwhile Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares took the Washington Open men’s doubles title.
By summer 2019, with the tennis tour back on grass and in the U.K. dare we hope for Andy Murray’s sixth Queen’s Club title and a third Wimbledon triumph? Certainly, his world ranking, in the 800’s, should become much higher over time. Of course, we can expect Nadal, Federer, Djokovic and rising stars like Sasha Zverev to make it difficult for him, but he has one advantage: he’s playing for a largely home crowd and we know that the support he receives courtside from fans empowers him.
So, bearing that in mind, are you planning to watch Murray, Edmund, Konta and fellow Brits at outstanding venues? Being courtside means that you live each point and are enveloped in a tennis bubble of delight and despair; you can’t replicate the sensations from the sofa at home.
If you intend to watch the world’s best tennis stars compete, why not treat your party, private or professional, to tennis hospitality which delivers luxuries and opportunities which standard tennis event tickets holders can’t enjoy.
Many corporate hospitality guests prefer Stoke Park and Queen’s rather than the larger capacity All England Club for tennis hospitality; these smaller events have capacity of 1700 and 9000 respectively and offer a less formal experience with excellent networking opportunities.
Private parties with tennis hospitality packages are treated like VIP’s throughout, and should the weather be inclement, exclusive access areas are a pleasant and dry environment in which to wait for play to resume.
Tennis event tickets with hospitality benefits are always in great demand and specialists like DTB Sports and Events have a range of experiences on offer to suit all tastes and budgets. You can also talk to them about bespoke packages.
Summer 2019 may seem a long time in the future, but it’ll soon be here. Don’t miss out on exceptional play and tennis hospitality.
