3.0 out of 5 stars No great secrets revealed!
If you know nothing at all about how Wimbledon is put together, you will learn something here.

If you know nothing at all about how Wimbledon is put together, you will learn something here. If you already understand the basics (the debenture system, the importance of TV deals etc) then you won't learn a huge amount from this book. As Gorringe himself says, the AELTC is a private club which does not need to reveal its affairs to the world, and this book doesn't change things. It moves along at a steady, sedate pace, rather like the AELTC itself. No feathers are ruffled, no horses are startled. There are a few interesting facts, though, such as the club now owns the huge golf course opposite - with the implication that, when the golf clubs leases expires in 30 years, the Club may be totally rebuilt.
