I nearly got court at Wim­ble­don!

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY SEPT 27 -

ON Mon­day I went to Wim­ble­don with a friend of mine who is a mem­ber there and it was amaz­ing.

I had an ac­cess all ar­eas pass and I went ev­ery­where pos­si­ble.

I even stood in the Royal Box where the Queen sits! And I saw where Prince Wil­liam and Kate sit as well.

I also went on the Royal bal­cony where they all stand and I even got to stand in the mid­dle of cen­tre court.

We had a sneaky peek into the men’s warm-up room where Andy Mur­ray gets ready for ac­tion and also the ladies’ chang­ing rooms.

I even sat in the tea room where the Queen has cake!

It was an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity. I’ve been to Wim­ble­don to watch the tennis be­fore but I have never been be­hind the scenes and it’s some­thing I’ve al­ways wanted to do.

My friend was laugh­ing at how ex­cited I was and how many pic­tures I was tak­ing.

They told us we

weren’t al­lowed to take pic­tures but ob­vi­ously I wasn’t tak­ing any notice of that!

I spot­ted the ladies’ tro­phy in the dis­play cab­i­net and I re­ally wanted to get a pic­ture of it even though they told us we couldn’t.

I was stand­ing there tak­ing a cheeky pic when the Chair­man of Wim­ble­don walked in and nearly caught me!

It was such a fan­tas­tic day – it re­ally made my week and cheered me up in this very mis­er­able weather.
