As a family, we’ve steadily got more and more into tennis over the years. It is one way we keep fit and it’s a sport my daughters have developed a real love for. I am, therefore, delighted to be giving readers a chance to win an epic prize: two tickets to the ladies’ finals at this year’s Wimbledon championships.
Yes, you read that correctly. Courtesy of event sponsor Robinsons, one reader of Dadbloguk could win two tickets to the ladies’ finals (Update 8 July, 2017: please note, the competition has now ended). Taking part is very simple. You simply have to watch the YouTube video embedded below and share it with your followers on social media.
Drinks with Tim Henman OBE (or is it…)
The prize is, quite frankly, epic and I am really excited to be running this competition. The winner will receive Centre Court tickets, lunch and exclusive access to the Robinson’s VIP suite during the course of the day.
The video features none other than tennis superstar Tim Henman. I won’t tell you too much and spoil the surprise.
Suffice it to say, Tim dons a bushy red beard and messy red hair and serves Robinson’s drinks to families attending a VIP tennis lesson at the All England Lawn Tennis Club hosted by head coach Dan Bloxham.
Still disguised, he then gatecrashed the lesson itself showing off his tennis skills much to the surprise of those present! You’ll have to watch the video itself to see how things ended, but it was all a good-natured prank.
Tim explained his desire to get involved in the joke: “For me, it’s all about encouraging people to play tennis and have fun with it. I played from the age of four, and want to inspire the next generation of tennis aces to enjoy learning new skills, making friends and being outside – whether that’s whilst winning or losing. It’s great that Robinsons are recognising that, and it’s been such a laugh winding everyone up.”
Robinsons has a long history with Wimbledon. It dates back to 1935 when its famous Lemon Barley Water was created to keep players at the Championships refreshed. To this day Robinsons remains one of Wimbledon’s key backers.
