Slazenger celebrates Wimbledon with an ace launch.

by Katie on July 2, 2011

Last week saw tennis giants Slazenger celebrate Wimbledon’s launch with a huge celebratory party held at London’s St Barnabus House.

Arriving from an earlier Emporio Armani party, we wished we’d got there sooner as rooms were filled with people in high spirits (quite literally, the bar was overflowing), girls in tennis skirts handing out huge giant tennis balls, over sized rackets and lots of great music courtesy of DJ, Tom Crane.

The value of holding a Summer event at St Barnabus House is the huge garden area which became so packed, there was a ‘one in one out’ system by the time we rocked up.

At the event, I spotted T4 presenter Jameela Jamil, boxer Joe Calzaghe and top boy band The Wanted  who all joined tennis legend John McEnroe in an impromptu game of tennis in to help Slazenger celebrate its long-standing association with Wimbledon. 

Other sports and celebrity guests attending included Shane Ward, Brian Lara , Bryan Fortuna, Heather Watson, Chemmy Alcott and the members of the cast of E4’s ‘Made In Chelsea’, the latter had vanished by the time me and my fellow devotee MiC  had time to stalk.  

This event was HUGE amounts of fun.  A tennis themed evening,  an open air barbeque with plenty of strawberries and cream, loads of smiles and great music.  Loved it!
