A Match Made in Heaven with Strawberries & Cream
Wimbledon is the oldest international tennis event in the world so there’s no wonder that it’s an event steeped in tradition. The location is iconic, the competitors are required to dress “almost entirely” in white and the players are referred to as “ladies” and “gentlemen” as a nod towards the early days when tennis was a sport played by aristocrats – it’s all quite quintessentially British.
From the long-standing traditions to the thrill of Wimbledon being the only tennis game that’s still played on a grass court, there’s a lot to get excited about when it comes to Wimbledon.
But what is our favourite Wimbledon tradition? Out of all the traditions and quirks of Wimbledon, the symbolic snack of choice has got to be our favourite. Wimbledon and Strawberries are a match made in heaven, and we’re here for it.
Strawberries & Cream for Wimbledon
It’s no secret that we’re fans of Strawberries & Cream! This winning combination has been served at Wimbledon since the first ever tournament took place in 1877 and still a crowd favourite today. In fact, an average of 166,055 punnets of Strawberries & Cream will be consumed throughout the 2-week tournament.
To ensure only the best and freshest strawberries are on offer, Wimbledon strawberries are picked at 4am on each day of the tournament to be enjoyed by guests on the same day! So, when they say the strawberries are fresh, they mean fresh!
These deliciously fresh, tart strawberries are served with a helping of sweet and velvety cream and will often be washed down with a refreshing glass of Pimms or a truly British cup of tea.
