hospitality-facility

Eventmasters Catering Services have received excellent reviews and feedback from VIP guests in attendance including the LTA Chief Executive himself, Michael Downey, following the 2 opening days of this new grass court tennis tournament, introduced as part of the buildup to the Championships at Wimbledon.

Hospitality guests in attendance have enjoyed a fantastic environment in which to entertain their important guests, combined with a high quality corporate hospitality package, as you would expect from any major tennis tournament. Following a Moet & Chandon and canape reception, a three course a la carte lunch is offered at your private table (Private tables are available regardless of the number of guests in your party). A deluxe afternoon tea and a full complimentary bar is also included along, of course, with the very best reserved VIP seating within Centre Court.

“I wanted to say what a wonderful time I had today with my friends.  I’ve been to Wimbledon and Roland Garros and booked hospitality, but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed today.  I thought the hospitality was spot on.

The whole experience was effortless which is how I like it, oh and the tennis was pretty good too!!!

Thank you for all your help.”

Sally Brennan

A number of players as well as Judy Murray mingled with guests in a relaxed and conducive atmosphere.

WINE LIST

Red
Château Méaume, Bordeaux Supérieur
A nose of fruitcake, spice and ripe, plummy fruit. Soft and rich on the palate, with blackcurrants, plum, and smoky cedarwood. This is an extremely soft wine which is a classic right bank style with velvet tannins.

Beaujolais-Villages, Georges Duboeuf
Packed with juicy strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit flavours. A bright and youthful wine with a fresh finish and voilet tones. Excellent on its own or with some light canopies.

White
Montagny Vielle Vignes
This Montagny offers ripe lemon aromas, accompanied by subtle hints of white blossom. More refreshing citrus flavours on the palate, and an elegant, steely dry finish. An elegant and classic Burgundian wine

Sauvignon de Touraine/11, Joël Delaunay
Aromatic, steely Sauvignon just bursting with gooseberry fruit, cut grass and citrus. This is a fresh wine with elderflower characteristics and a lingering finish, perfect for a summers day.
