The Wimbledon Championships is here and, as everybody frantically prepares enough Pimms and strawberries to last the next fortnight, you can get in the mood for tennis with the tournament’s Official Playlist on Spotify.
With upbeat tracks from the likes of Olly Murs, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Matrix & Futurebound, Royal Blood and many more, you, like the superstars of the game, can get pumped for the big matches.
So whether you’re fortunate enough to get court-side, on Henman Hill (Murray Mount) or watching on TV in the comfort of your own home, make this your soundtrack to one of the most famous and historic sporting events on the planet.
Defending champion and British No.1 Andy Murray is aiming for a third title to match the achievement of the legendary Fred Perry, but with multiple winners Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in good form lifting the trophy again on July 16 will be no easy task.
In the women’s draw, with defending champion and seven-time winner Serena Williams not competing after announcing her pregnancy in April, Britain’s Johanna Konta will fancy her chances of competing for a first Grand Slam title.
With Kyle Edmund, Aljaz Bedene, Naomi Broady, Heather Watson, Laura Robson, Katie Boulter, Brydan Klein, Cameron Norris, James Ward, Alex Ward, Jamie Murray and more also carrying GB hopes on their shoulders – you can back the Brits with #TennisMusic, The Official British Tennis Playlist on Spotify and Deezer.
Music plays a massive part in the British game. This playlist soundtracks the indoor events at LTA & Davis Cup Events, plus the players walk on music and warm up tracks!
The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) is the national governing body of tennis in Great Britain whose focus is to develop participation growth to help more people play tennis.
Over the last 30 years tennis has moved into new markets, attracting wider audiences and encouraging young talent to participate in the sport.
The LTA believes more than 110,000 children already play Mini Tennis at 1,500 venues across the country. There are countless other initiatives being used by the LTA to get people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds involved, with a significant emphasis on changing perceptions of tennis.
