LONDON, July 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The annual Wimbledon Championships are well under way for 2012, as dedicated tennis fans can see the world's top players compete to win a coveted Wimbledon title.
The world of tennis has descended on South West London, where the focus will remain on tennis, strawberries and champagne for the rest of this week, until the 2012 Wimbledon champions are crowned on Sunday 8th July 2012. Make your visit to The Championships that extra bit special by staying at the Millennium & Copthorne hotels in Kensington, which are all within easy reach of the All England Club.
Having been held in the same location since 1877, The Championships at Wimbledon is described by some as the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world. It has returned once again to allow players from all over the world to battle it out on the famous grass courts.
-An important summer event in London, the tournament is not to be missed. Even on 'Henman Hill', which is located just outside No. 1 Court, where spectators congregate to watch games on a big screen, the atmosphere is unrivalled.
This year's tournament includes appearances from top players such as Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova. The tournament is divided into four main categories, Gentleman's Singles and Doubles and Ladies' Singles and Doubles. There are also mixed doubles and junior categories so there is something for everyone and all tastes are catered for.
The Millennium & Copthorne hotels in London offer easy access to the tournament at SW19, via the London transport network. The underground is an easy option as the District line runs through Knightsbridge and Kensington, where four of the hotels are situated, and this line provides a direct service to Wimbledon.
