- Venue Description:
The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum traces the origins of the modern tennis game over the last century or so. You can enjoy this museum even if you aren't a tennis lover, as it captures the spirit of tennis excellently. Exhibits include displays on the social history of tennis, how modern equipment has been developed, interactive quizzes, and a vast collection of tennis paraphernalia. Several tennis stars have donated clothing and equipment for display. The exhibit illustrating how fashions in tennis-wear have changed over the last century is particularly interesting. The gift shop sells souvenir gifts, books and, for the real enthusiast, Wimbledon leisure wear.
