Product Description

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
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available 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. 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 August

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 August

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 August

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 August

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 August

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.

Unusual 50th Birthday Present

It was birthday present for my sister. She loved it. It did take longer to arrive than I thought it would, hence 4 stars and not 5, but it reached her in time for her birthday as I ordered it about 2 weeks ahead of time. A really nice unusual gift for a special birthday

Following a problem with the web page…

Following a problem with the web page when ordering,'In The Book' have been very supportive in sorting this out. Thank you

Shelby Jones Maddox Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 20 January

Great product

Overall, the book is fantastic! Beautiful colors and well made. I first ordered from In The Books because my daughter's name is unique, and she can't find anything with her name in stores, and I wanted something special for her birthday coming up. It was easy to order, and I got a confirmation email immediately. The only trouble I had was the order wasn't showing up on my account and I could not track it. I got very scared that this was a scam and that I would not receive it. Sure enough it arrived the next day (1/19/19), earlier than expected (est. DD was 1/22-24). I would like to purchase more, but they are a little pricey, which is to be expected since they are personalized. A suggestion I have would be to consider reviewing your prices to make them more affordable. Thanks so much!

Proud Grandma Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 19 January

I love these books

I love these books. I bought three for my grandchildren. The only reason I didn't give this product a "5" rating is because I have found that in one book a word is missing in the second sentence of the book. In another, there is a verb missing in the first sentence.

SUE SOUTHAMPTON Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 January

Child's name book.
