You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the wonderful history of The Wimbledon Championships. 

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1913 to the present day

Relive all the most memorable moments in Centre Court history through newspaper clippings in this personalised Wimbledon book, now updated with the latest coverage of Wimbledon 2019. With coverage beginning in 1913, the first time the championship included Women’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles competitions, this exquisite tennis book takes you through over a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from SW19, right up until the present day.

Beginning in 1887, Wimbledon is still widely regarded as the most prestigious championship in the tennis calendar. Held exclusively at the All England Club in London since its inception, it has attracted competitors and winners from all over the world, but for British fans, the championships were long synonymous with heartache and disappointment. After Fred Perry’s championship triple from 1934 to 1936, an incredible 77 years would pass before another British Men’s Singles champion.

During that time, Centre Court would see Rod Laver win four titles, followed by Americans Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe and Arthur Ashe battling Bjorn Borg (as well as each other), with their combined total of six titles sandwiching the Swede’s five-in-a-row. At the end of the century, Pete Sampras won seven, a feat repeated by Roger Federer shortly after. In the Women’s Championship, Billie Jean King won six, Steffi Graf seven, and Martina Navratilova nine, while Britain enjoyed some fleeting successes via Ann Jones and Virginia Wade, before the Williams sisters took hold of SW19, winning twelve titles between them in a 17-year period from the start of the 21st century. And then, at long last, in 2013, a year after he had lost in the final, Scotsman Andy Murray finally broke the British hoodoo by defeating top seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

A 65th birthday gift for a keen player and tennis fan - the recipients pleasure on receipt said it all. A good quality product that will grace a coffeee table and clearly provide hours of enjoyment and maybe a constant source of reference.

ladybothwell1 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

I bought the Wimbledon Tennis history online as a gift for my brother's 60th. and as he is a fanatic tennis collector with a rare collection, and also a writer for tennis magazines, this had to be unique and different, and it so was. This book is beautifully done, and will be treasured by my brother as part of a great collection, especially as I was able to put his name in gold on the front cover. Packaging was first-class and delivery to Australia was fast. Would recommend this site and this book to any collector of sporting memorabilia.

Wildcat Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

Really pleased with the book and the size of it - big enough to make it even more special! It has a real quality feel and the embossing on the front made a lot of difference. The person receiving the book was thrilled and eveyone that looked at the book said what a wonderful idea it was.

Only thing that would make it better is presentation box

Duchesse Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

We were looking for a different type of gift for an 80 year old tennis fan and this book proved to be the perfect present. Our friend has been a lifelong tennis player and has played at a very high level. As well as all the tennis memories, it was so interesting to read about things were happening at the time. He hasn't received the present yet but I am sure that he will get hours of pleasure from reading it.

unclear Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 29 Aug 2018

Arrived very quick and packaged well. However, and this may be my fault, I automatically thought that the name of the gifter would be included in the verse in the book. So I have a lovely composed verse for my friends birthday within the book, but I will now have to add my name to this as does not say who it is from .

tennis1708 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

Ideal gift for a tennis player especially from a group. Three ladies at my tennis club had a 50th birthday tennis and lunch party a few weeks ago. All those invited contributed and we were able to purchase a personalised book for each of them. They loved them.

very happy with the unicorn poo book! It was a gift for a 7 year old who has found great enjoyment with her new book. Lots of things to look out for and having her name to find on each page has made it all the more special. Very happy over-all

When I first tried to place my order…

When I first tried to place my order for Swallows and Amazon personalised hardback the website would not allow me to enter my message. I telephoned and was told by a very helpful lady who I think her name was Sandra told me it was a technical problem and she would get back to me when it was resolved. I was amazed that at 9am the next morning she called me to say all was now fixed.The customer service was great and when the book was received it was really good quality. Very impressed and would recommend.

Promises of delivery date..completely…

Promises of delivery date..completely wrong and not so helpful folk. Product...much, much smaller and thinner than I had believed. Not sure I would repeat my experience with company.

Lisa jane Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 29 Sep 2020

Not great

To be honest I was slightly let down... the book basically has my nieces name on the front of the book and that's it! I thought her name would have been involved in the story?! €28 is alot of money for something I could have done myself!

cjack Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 29 Sep 2020

Nicely presented book.

The book was presented very nicely and looks very engaging. There were two pronoun errors in the text but given that it took a while to arrive, I don't have time for an exchange before the date I intend to present the book. The receiver is not at an age where he will be bothered around pronouns too much but likely to be delighted to see himself and his beloved dog in the story. It would be good if there were a range of different adventures to choose from.

The service given and the final product…

The service provided and the final product were both fantastic. Having made an inputting error (wrong year!) at the point of order, the error was picked up, queried and corrected by a member of the In The Book team, before going to print. My parents were simply delighted with the finished product; they described it as beautifully presented, a trip down memory lane and a real keep sake to share with friends and family. Thank you In The Book.

The Haynes guide for Pensioners…

The Haynes guide for Pensioners dedicated to Arthur was a huge hit! His thank you card about it read that he had started out with chuckles and giggles but it became laugh out loud funny once he had claimed it from the rest of the family!
