|Notes / History||The Wimbledon Championships involve the largest single annual catering operation, staged at a sporting event anywhere in Europe.
During the competition fortnight, 1,400 staff are responsible for serving vast quantities of food and drink, including 30,000 portions of fish and chips, 135,000 ice creams and 285,000 cups of tea/coffee.
To ensure that hungry visitors do not miss the action on court, giant video screens show live footage of the tennis. The player shown here appears to be the American, Jim Courier.
