On Tuesday 5th July 10 Phase 3 students, Russ and Poppy went to the All England Lawn Tennis Club, otherwise known as Wimbledon. We left school at 5.30am and arrived at about 11.30am. The experience was amazing because we got to see the women’s world number 1, Serena Williams on centre court and her sister Venus Williams (5 x champion) on court 1.
The tickets we had were 2 x centre court and 10 x court 1 tickets, so we all took turns on centre court. The best bit for me was arriving at centre court and soaking up the atmosphere of the biggest tennis tournament in the world.
We all had a great time, including a picnic on Murray Mound and everyone bought some championship balls that had been used by the professional players for 8 games.
We left about 6.30pm and arrived home just before midnight. Everyone was very tired and worn out from travelling but we all had a brilliant and amazing time thanks to Russ & Poppy!
