Wimbledon kicks off today and it’s champagne and strawberries all the way. There’s nothing like a spot of TV tennis to make you think your forehand could do with a brush up – every Wimbledon fortnight, the number of people re-discovering their inner Billy-Jean rises, with visits to local tennis amenities up tenfold for the fortnight. But, before you serve an ace or two, it’s crucial to warm up properly with some leg and arm stretches and a gentle jog-on-the-spot for at least fifteen minutes before you go love-all. It’s no co-incidence that along with the rise of court fees comes a spate of strains, aches and injuries. We’ve got lots of lovely post-match treats to ease away any tennis pains and ensure you are fit for more than just spectating. We love Elemis Musclease Active Body Concentrate, Molton Brown SeaMoss Stress Relieving Hydrosoak and This Works Muscle Therapy.
