    Review Score

The Players’ Tables is a fine-dining experience like no other during The Championships, where important guests are treated to a private booth and exquisite food prepared by Michel Roux Jnr, and Emily Roux.

This package also comes with the enviable benefit of meeting a tennis celebrity, alongside a complete Butler service giving the day that extra wow factor that goes perfectly with the occasion.

The Players’ Tables is located within the Lawn facility, directly opposite gate 5, as such guests can also enjoy these amenities, like the impeccable garden and buggy transport to the gates.

The Players’ Tables Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Lawn (previously branded as ‘The Gatsby Club’) is a contemporary glass-fronted marquee structure situated opposite the All England Lawn Tennis Club. The Lawn is an official hospitality facility offering several package options, with the catering overseen by legendary Michelin-starred Chefs, Michel Roux Jr, and daughter Emily Roux. The Players’ Tables is an upgraded package providing a highly personalised experience.

Location

The Lawn facility is situated on the grounds of Wimbledon Cricket Club, which is directly opposite the main entrance of the All England Club, on Church Road. It is only a 5-minute walk to either Gate 4 or Gate 5. Golf Buggies are provided to reduce this time to less than a minute.

Facility/Décor

The Players’ Tables are semi-private areas, where your table is allocated its own space within The Lawn, adorned with an overhead chandelier on the low suspended ceiling, and separated from other tables by attractive tassel drapes, which can either be open or closed. The Lawn facility is a huge glass-fronted facility, with natural light streaming through. In some areas, it resembles a smart modern airport departure lounge with a very tall canvas ceiling, albeit it is an attractive space. There is a Mezzanine Level, which has a cosier feel. There is a keen attention to detail with linen drapes and a soft pastel colour scheme. The shared outside garden area is pleasant, however, it is enclosed by 20ft high screens that define the space, and there are no views except the rear of the glass-fronted structure. The garden area features a novel ‘foot stream’, lounge garden furniture and a bar.

Private Tables

The Players’ Tables are available for 10-12 guests.

Admission

You have the choice of booking this facility with either official Centre Court or No.1 Court tickets. However, the allocated seats are not Debenture Seats (which are acknowledged as the best corporate seats available on Centre Court). You can upgrade to Debenture seats for an additional cost.

Catering

Catering consists of a four-course à la carte luncheon, designed by the Roux dynasty, including a seasonal cheese course. Traditional Wimbledon Afternoon Tea consists of cakes, scones, and pastries, as well as Strawberries and Cream.

Guests enjoying hospitality

Drinks

Car park passes are allocated on a 1:4 basis, and parking is conveniently outside the facility.
