£14.99

Product description

The complete history (to 2000) of the tennis tournament known simply as The Championships, which has been held since 1877 at the All-England Club, Wimbledon.

Containing more than 400 photographs, Wimbledon: The Official History of the Championships is an absorbing portrait of an occasion that has become as much an institution as an international sporting event.
