The sleepy seaside town of Eastbourne on the South East coast of England is probably the last place you would think to find some of the world’s finest tennis players battling it out before Wimbledon.
But you may be pleasantly surprised to find out that this is in fact true! The likes of Laura Robson, Caroline Wozniacki, Ana Ivanovic and Gilles Simon will all be playing at Devonshire Park from the 15th – 22nd June in preparation for the All England Club Championships.
The event has been such a big success in recent years that the BBC will be covering the event from the 18th of June until the finals on the 22nd of June after a five-year break.
On the opening day it will also be completely free to enter the grounds and seats on Centre Court and Court No.1 will be unreserved, so there is no excuse to miss out! and for the hardcore tennis fans there will be an exciting Legend’s Exhibiton match on Sunday 16th June which will feature Greg Rusedski and Mark Philippoussis partnering up with Rennae Stubbs and Lindsey Davenport.
