Wimbledon in Texas
Oakmont Country Club in Corinth, Texas, kicked off Wimbledon last weekend with their own Wimbledon tennis event that included an all-white tennis code, tea sandwiches, and strawberries and cream and, for the winner, a tennis bag from HEAD’s new Wimbledon collection. In addition, a consolation prize was given to the participant in most blatant disregard of the all-white dress code.
At Prestonwood Country Club in Dallas, Director of Tennis John Ingram III, his Tennis Staff and the Golf Course Maintenance Staff go all out each year creating a grass tennis court during Wimbledone. Members also don their whites and play a few matches getting a close-to-authentic grass courts experience.
Kudos to Oakmont and Prestonwood for paying tribute and honoring the oldest – and widely regarded as the most prestigious – tennis tournament in the world.
