Find hotels near English Tennis Venues
The 2016 England summer tennis season is well and truly here! With lots of British talent as well as international stars competing across the country, there are plenty of opportunities to see your heroes in action.
A list of fixtures is available on the BBC Sport Tennis Calendar and if you’re staying with Jurys Inn hotels during the tennis action, here’s some info on the venues:
Nottingham Tennis Centre
|Bank of England Sports Ground|
The biggest tennis event of the year takes place annually at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club in Wimbledon. The first championships took place here in 1877 and since then all the tennis greats have played in these majestic grounds. This year the action takes place between 27th June and 10th July 2016. While some lucky fans will have gained their ballot tickets, swarms of fans travel to the grounds early each morning of the tournament and queue for hours in the hopes of getting a ticket to sit on the hill, enjoy the Wimbledon strawberries and watch the action on the big screens. Public transport will be your best option as parking would be difficult during the tournament. Jurys Inn Croydon is located approximately 45 – 50 minutes from the stadium by public transport.
|The Queen's Club|
Established in 1886, the Queen’s Club was the first multipurpose sports complex to be built in the world. The club is hosting the world famous Aegon Championships from the 13th -19th June 2016. Visit the Queen’s Club website for more information on this prestigious club and for more information on the Davis Cup quarter finals, visit the LTA website. Jurys Inn Watford is situated just under an hour away from the Queen's Club by train or car.
