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 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.
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.
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.
The Players’ Tables are available for 10-12 guests.
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 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.
The complimentary bar features Chilled and Pink Champagne and a choice of specially upgraded wines and beers, as well as bespoke cocktails.
There are a butler and a personal hostess service to attend to drinks, which enhances service greatly.
Your guests will have the opportunity to meet and speak to a Tennis celebrity.
There are ample TV monitors for you to keep track of the tennis, including a giant TV screen in the garden area.
Car park passes are allocated on a 1:4 basis.
Programmes are available for guests.
While there is no dress code, most hospitality options available request clients dress on the smarter side of casual i.e. no jeans or trainers. Jackets and ties are not obligatory.
GPS users can get to The AELTC using the postcode SW19 5AE, then follow signs for parking. It is strongly urged that visitors arrive by public transport services where possible, the closest tube station is Southfields Station, a 10-15 minute walk.
