Winning Wimbledon foodie facts

We love to tuck into a punnet or two of strawberries while watching Wimbledon - just pair them with British cream and maybe a sprinkle of sugar and you've got the winning combo!


Did you know that during Wimbledon, which is the largest single annual catering operation in Europe involving 2,200 staff, a staggering 28k of English strawberries are eaten by tennis fans?

  • 330,000 cups of tea and coffee
  • 320,000 glasses of Pimm’s
