As the offficial banking partner of The Championships, HSBC said it would offer the opportunity for tennis fans to meet some of the biggest names in tennis as well as offer exclusive rewards for HSBC customers.

Fans will have a chance to visit the HSBC Fan Zone on site throughout the championships to have their photo taken on Centre Court. They can then have it sent to loved ones anywhere in the world in the form of a post card.

All HSBC customers attending Wimbledon can also visit the HSBC customer booth between 11am to 7pm to enjoy free strawberries & cream. 

HSBC also has a grass court located on Wimbledon Golf Course, which is where the infamous "Wimbledon Queue" forms.

The bank is also inviting fans of all tennis abilities to rally against friends with the opportunity to play against HSBC ambassadors throughout the tournament.

Additional entertainment for the queue will be offered including interactive games, skill sessions and clinics run by Lawn Tennis Association-approved coaches.

Wimbledon runs between 27 June and 10 July, 2016.

Last year, brand ambassador Tim Henman played on the HSBC court.
