300,000 cups of tea and coffee. 191,000 servings of strawberries and cream. 65,850 scones with jam and Devonshire clotted cream
Here at Wimbledon, we know just how much a good cup of tea can mean to the British public. After all, we prepare more than 300,000 cups of tea and coffee during an ordinary Fortnight. For many of our guests, taking afternoon tea at Wimbledon is an important part of The Championships experience. In 2019, we served 65,850 scones but we still leave it to you to decide which goes on first, the dollop of strawberry jam or the generous scoop of fresh clotted cream.
Our colleagues in Food & Drink at Wimbledon take pride in delivering the largest single annual sporting catering operation and that’s why we take extra care in the development of our fine bone china and homewares collections. Designed in the UK and decorated with patterns appropriate to an afternoon at The Championships we develop new ranges each year in celebration of that English fascination, afternoon tea. For those looking to recreate the Wimbledon Fortnight at home, our high-quality homewares include kitchen textiles and tableware and are available in a variety of tennis themed patterns.
