With the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament of Wimbledon lying ahead on the horizon, countless fans are preparing their trip to London this summer to catch a glimpse of the world’s best players.  But away from the courts, many tennis fans love to see the players around and about in the town.  Where are the best locations and hotels to catch a glimpse of the world’s best?

Several hotel accommodations are wonderful places to bump into a Wimbledon tennis competitor.  Locations like the Savoy Hotel and the Hotel Ibis Earls Court are great places for fans to stay at Wimbledon, because of their close proximity to both Wimbledon and the major tourist sites around London.

In actuality, though, most of the superstar players competing at Wimbledon don’t stay at hotels; they rent homes right in the middle of Wimbledon.  This enables them to be both comfortable and left alone while they focus on the next match in the tournament.

Therefore, to best catch a glimpse of your favorite Wimbledon star off the grass courts, the best advice is to hang around the town of Wimbledon because that is where many of the players will be around while not competing.

However, the best way to see the Wimbledon players is to get tickets to some actual matches.  Watching these competitors play their game is an incredible joy, and the Wimbledon tournament is one of the most magnificent experiences in the world for tennis fans.  With tournament packages and ticket deals, Tennis Tours can help you watch the world’s best at the prestigious tournament of Wimbledon.
