28 June 2011 : Written by A Camping Ninja
Some people camped out in the rain to try and get tickets for Wimbledon’s Centre Court.
Some people will watch it beaming live onto a mini television screen in the comfort of their caravan.
Some people will take their tent and escape the racket and fluorescent yellow ball madness and get away from it all with a camping break.
Some people will play their own game of tennis, on an imaginary court in between tents and campervans at a campsite, with plastic rackets and a brightly coloured soft sponge ball that narrowly misses the neighbouring canvas.
Some people and some Camping Ninjas like me, will watch the tennis on a caravan converted into a mobile television screen that is parked in the courtyard in between some swanky office blocks.
But no matter what kind of Wimbledon experience you’re having, one thing you can be sure of is that people (and Camping Ninjas) love camping!
Wherever we go and whatever we do, people (and Camping Ninjas) who just can’t get enough of camping, will surround ourselves with tents and camping equipment wherever we go. Now that’s what you call Wimbledon with a camping theme!
Of course we all know that there are no real, traditional camping opportunities in Wimbledon. Too many Wombles on that common! And there would be no chance of getting a peaceful night’s sleep with all that womble-ing by night going on.
So however you’re enjoying Wimbledon fortnight, just don’t forget the strawberries and cream.
