Get set for Wimbledon With A&K

Mark your calendars: Wimbledon is here. The world’s oldest tennis tournament has long been the stage for the game’s great names to cement their star status, and for young talents to stake their claim to tennis fame. This year, in keeping with our ongoing commitment to support prestigious sports events and invest in truly memorable experiences, we’re excited to announce that Abercrombie & Kent is sponsoring 10 Wimbledon matches, supporting a variety of seeded players as they vie for the top trophies.

For those lucky enough to have secured a ticket to the world-renowned grand slam, you’re in for an exciting season. On top of the much-loved traditions – strawberries and cream, plenty of champagne and guaranteed A-list sightings in the royal box – this year’s tournament will see tennis fans anxiously watch to see if Novak Djokovic will claim his eighth Wimbledon Grand Slam title, and if current favourite Iga Swiatek will take the women’s title. These nail-biting matches make it more than worthwhile to don your finest attire and silently watch from the stands, rain or shine.

But if this isn’t your year to have a front row seat to the big tournament, you can still find a creative way to make tennis a memorable part of your winter. Whether you’re after an off-grid escape or a luxurious retreat, we’ve rounded up some of the exceptional hotels around the world where you’ll have your own personal court.


The first player to take the court wearing an A&K patch was Tomas Machac of the Czech Republic, who faced Cameron Norrie on Tuesday, July 4.

On Wednesday, July 5, we appeared on the sleeve of Jordan Thompson (AUS), who faced Novak Djokovic (SRB) on Centre Court, as well as Karolina Pliskova (CZE), who faced Natalija Stevanovic (SRB) on Court 18.

On Friday, July 7, we appeared on the sleeves of France’s Quentin Halys, who played Italy’s Jannick Sinner, as well as Elisabetta Cocciaretto (ITA) who played Jessica Pegula (USA). Both matches were played on Court No.3.

On Saturday, July 8, we patched Christopher Eubanks (USA), who defeated Christopher O'Connoll (AUS) on Court 18.


Marketa Vondrousova (CZE) wore the A&K patch as she defeated Jessica Pegula (USA) in the quarter final on July 11 and Elina Svitolina (UKR) on Center Court on Thursday, July 13.

Congratulations to Marketa Vondrousova, who has become the first unseeded Ladies’ Singles finalist at Wimbledon in 60 years. Abercrombie & Kent is proud to be supporting her as she vies for the championship.
