The number one tennis tournament on the British calendar, Wimbledon is kicking off once more in London today, and how better to buff up your knowledge of the sport than with a visit to the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum.
Wimbledon is the most watched Grand Slam tennis event, according to LondonTown, with more than 500,000 spectators watching the matches at the All England Club each year.
True fans can spend the coming fortnight queuing overnight at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for tickets for Centre Court to see the biggest matches, however, in the first week of the championships, top seeds like Roger Federer can be seen on the outer courts for which there are more tickets available.
The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is accessible to tournament ticket holders during the Championships, which take place from today June 23rd until July 6th 2008.
Highlights of the museum include a 200-degree cinema screen showing filming of Russia's Maria Sharapova against Spain's Nuria Llagostera Vives in 2005.
Fashions of Wimbledon featuring outfits worn from the 1880s to current day trends are also on display.
London Pass holders can receive free entry to the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum.
