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.

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.

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry. Would not recommend to anyone. Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better. Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet. If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night. I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order. Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories. If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer. In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

A great cover and fronts piece.

A great cover and fronts piece. However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

Absolutely brilliant company. Bought the Leeds united memory book It is brilliant cant wait to give the gift because I know the recipient is going to be absolutely amazed by it.

The child's name only appears on the opening page of each story. Other companies replace the name of the character in the story with the child's name. The format and quality of the book prints and presentation are good.

Very disappointed in this book for so much money - unfortunately I believed my granddaughter would appear in the story not just at the top of the pages - feel as if I’ve been conned!
