World’s leading tennis tournament sees enormous rise in hotel room requirements for SW19 and surrounding areas
Online PR News – 10-June-2010 – – With the tennis world gearing up for the summer’s traditional Wimbledon frenzy, hotels in London are already being booked up, particularly for the day of the men’s single’s final, says online hotel room booker DirectRooms.com.
This year’s men’s final is on July 4 and as such coincides with American Independence Day. This has prompted many Americans attending the famous tennis tournament to book up hotel rooms in the SW19 area to watch the day’s play and then go out to party at night.
With the bookies again predicting a final showdown between legend Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal, demand for final tickets is already sky high. The bonus of being able to enjoy fireworks and a night out for July 4 afterwards is bringing more people than ever to Wimbledon this year, meaning hotels in London are being booked earlier than usual.
Wimbledon is famous for many people camping out in tents along the Wimbledon Park Road approach to the stadium, but it seems this year many more tennis fans are determined to have a proper hotel roof over their heads.
Lek Boonlert, head of marketing at DirectRooms.com, comments, “It is a great coincidence that the men’s Wimbledon final lands on July 4 this year, so many American tennis fans and indeed people from other countries have been booking up hotel rooms months in advance. It’s a good idea to get one booked soon if you want to be within walking distance of the courts.”
