Wimbledon Towels A Hot Item For Players And Fans
Published July 6, 2012
LOST BALLS: In London, Donna Bowater reported that Wimbledon organisers lose 50 tennis balls every day, with many taken by fans "who want a memento." Some 54,000 stamped Slazenger balls are ordered for the two-week tournament. Almost 2,000 are used every day. Even though the All England Club gives visitors "the chance to buy used balls at the official shop," the man in charge of keeping track of them "suspects wayward balls are kept by fans" (TELEGRAPH, 7/4).
