As is customary when we approach the end of the year, we have been reminiscing about 2018…. It has been a very exciting sporting year with Wimbledon the highlight. Our favorite Swiss, Roger Federer proved he still a force to be reckoned with by winning his 20th Grand Slam when he took the Australian Open but it has also been refreshing to see the resurgence of the fighter that is Djokovic and the rise of the new superstar Zverev as the tennis season drew to a close. It would be wonderful if Andy Murray could overcome his injury problems and make 2019 a year to remember.
Sporting Agenda launched a new website dedicated to the sales of Wimbledon debenture tickets and the website has been incredibly well received from our clients all over the world – we look set to break our previous records for how many tennis fans we help with debenture tickets to realize their dream of attending Wimbledon. One thing is certain, the magic of Wimbledon never fails to impress and the feedback we receive from our clients is truly heart-warming to read.
We are also incredibly proud to now be sponsoring Paralympic silver medalist and multiple Grand Slam winner Andy Lapthorne in 2019. Andy is a fantastic tennis player and currently ranked third in the world for quad players. He is set to compete at Wimbledon for the first time next year as the prestigious tournament now includes a quad-division.
The glorious British summer also saw fantastic racing at Royal Ascot, a FIFA World Cup which will last long in the memory, Geraint Thomas winning the Tour de France and Sports Personality of the Year, Tyson Fury’s amazing stab at becoming heavyweight champion of the world and Enable’s crowning glory of winning a 2nd Arc and Breeders Cup Turf at Churchill Downs. We are already gearing up for the Cricket World Cup which takes place throughout the UK next year and the Ashes which sees the return of Steve Smith and David Warner.
One thing is certain; we never run out of fantastic events and ideas and personal customer service is always at the forefront of everything we do.
To all of our clients and connections, the team at Sporting Agenda wish you a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
