By all accounts, the 2013 edition of Wimbledon is shaping up to be the most competitive and exciting tennis competition in quite some time.  With four front-runners in the Men’s Singles tournament, the tournament will be hotly contested and extremely exciting.  And with Serena Williams showing her dominance with her recent French Open victory, the Women’s Singles tournament looks to be a test of who will potentially be capable of matching the American tennis legend.

Although Wimbledon is beginning in just a few days, a trip to the two-week tournament can still be attained through Championship Tennis Tours, a full-service vendor of complete Wimbledon trip packages, which includes tickets, hotel deals, and various other enticing activities throughout England during non-match days.  For any tennis fan looking to explore London while watching the world’s most prestigious tennis event, this is the best way to prepare your trip!

 

Hotel accommodations range from the affluent 5-star Savoy Hotel to the more modest, yet still charming 3-star Hotel Ibis Earls Court.  Day trip plans include London bus tours, a trip to Stonehenge, and even a day trip across the English Channel to Paris.  There are countless ways to enjoy this special vacation beyond the courts, and the trip will surely excite the whole family!

Back on the courts, Wimbledon will be an absolute thrill to watch.  Novak Djokovic is the most likely contender, but Rafael Nadal’s return to form shows a man capable of stringing together a series of Grand Slam Championships.  Last year’s champion Roger Federer is not as dominant in years past, but is still a contender, and local fans will be cheering on Andy Murray, the Scot who won the 2012 Olympic Gold Medal for tennis.  Who will emerge from this group to win?  Be there and watch it all enfold first hand!
