Ah the heady cloudless blue sky of bright summer. Wow and what a summer this is turning out to be already. When we reach first week of the tennis tournament, we know that summer has arrived and if the pattern from the last couple of years, is the norm, then the week is likely to be scorching hot. The second week is often when the much needed rain arrives – gardeneres and families are thrilled but the poor players will be slipping around the grass court and the ‘shall they, shan’t they’ pantomime with the centre court roof will arise again. Tickets for these massive sporting events, and this tournament is by far the biggest in the world, are available from gift sites and some of them offer amazing deals for hotels in the area too.
