March 11, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
Keith Prowse, the UK’s most respected hospitality provider and leading contractor of corporate hospitality at the world-renowned Championships, Wimbledon, is heading skyward with the launch of its most exclusive hospitality suites for the 2008 event. For the first time in The All England Lawn Tennis Club’s history, clients will be able to exclusively wine, dine and entertain their guests in the newly built and highly coveted Skyview Suites, located inside the club’s Centre Court complex.

The limited number of suites have capacity for 10 to 20 guests and are located in the top most rim of the soon-to-be roofed Centre Court, with spacious balconies that allow guests to take in the panoramic views of the City of London, just 10 miles away as the crow flies. As an additional bonus, clients who book the suites for the 2008 Wimbledon Championships will have first refusal on the suites in 2009; where the completed Centre Court roof will guarantee play on every day of the tournament.

The Wimbledon dining experience comes with a traditional set of luxuries, where in the past has included a total of 25,000 glasses of Champagne and 1,540 gallons of fresh cream served with customary strawberries for afternoon tea, fine wines, a canapé reception and an à la carte menu. Within the Skyview Suites, the hospitality experience extends further to plasma screens, a personal usher service to and from allocated Centre Court reserved seating, luxury chauffeur service per suite (within the M25 region), butler service, dedicated waiting staff and an official souvenir gift for every guest. As the only entertainment opportunity within the Wimbledon Centre Court complex, these unique touches aim to make the experience truly unforgettable.

Rob McCowen, marketing director of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, commented: "Keith Prowse has been the official hospitality supplier to the AELTC for more than 25 years. They work closely with us here at Wimbledon to offer the very best to our guests, as you will see in the superb range of hospitality packages available this year."
