Tennis anyone!?โ˜บ๏ธ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ† by Raquel Izzo

Today was so great, we got to go to Wimbledon for the day. It was so interesting to see this little quaint town before the madness of the matches that will be taking place in two weeks. We got off the tube station and walked a straight shot to the arena.

Once we got there we looked around a little bit in the souvenir shop and then we got tickets to walk around the museum that they had. The museum consisted of the times table of tennis. From when it started, how it started, what the first taker and ball looked like, the kinds of outfits that thy wore.

It was really cool to see the different kinds of rackets and what the first ones looked like to what they look like today. We got to watch this 3D movie on how tennis started out we saw how they made the court and footage from the different matches that they have had.

It started out from when they first opened to now, where people sit, and the atmosphere of the place. It was so cool it makes me want to go back someday and see it for myself. I would love to see Venus or Serena Williams duel it out on the court!

I grew up playing tennis so it was really cool to see something like the Wimbledon arena and feel the presence of all the people that have been there before me. All the championships that have been won and all the peoples lives have been changed there and carriers made. To be even a little bit a part of it was awesome! Now when I watch it on TV I will be able to say I was there! ๐Ÿ™‚
