Uniqueness of Wimbledon and its champions
If lawn tennis is now synonymous with Wimbledon is because it was actually born in Wimbledon, when a similar discipline called sphairistikè (in Greek: σφαιριστική, meaning "ball game") was designed and patented in 1868 by the British army officer Walter Clopton Wingfield. The game quickly took root as a leisure activity for the upper middle class and the British nobility, so much so that it was added to the activities of the prestigious All England Croquet Club of Wimbledon, which became All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, where the tournament is still played.

Functional training works to raise awareness of one's physical and mental abilities and allows one to rejoin mind and body.
