Wimbledon Visit

Took a trip to Wimbledon on Saturday, on a bit of a grey drizzly day, didn't feel much like mid-May!  The teams still managed to brave the cold and played a good game with only one short break for rain.

I collected quite a few interviews with some club stalwarts and took loads of photos.  I'll be uploading them soon and creating some new digital stories.

Wimbledon's an interesting club, they share their club house with tennis, hockey, and squash clubs, which gives it a different feel to some of the other grounds I've visited.  The location also make in interesting, it's a short commute from central London and you can see the Shard and other city landmarks from the ground, and yet it somehow maintains the atmosphere of a village.

Please look out for some of their stories coming soon.
