Tennis Season Essentials

EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR AN AL FRESCO FEAST ON HENMAN HILL

With The Championships soon underway, we've picked out a selection of food and drink best enjoyed to the percussive soundtrack of high-speed serve-and-volleying.

 

 

And while we can't guarantee the weather will play ball we can at least ensure - whether you're watching from SW19 or further afield - that your refreshments will all be sure-fire winners.

 

 

From scrumptious picnics to summertime tipples and our own twist on the All England Club's ubiquitous strawberries, explore our champion treats below. Play!

1   A Fortnum's Picnic
   

 

Our fresh food picnics have all been created with summertime dining in mind - filled with every delicious thing you could possible want to tuck into...

 

 

Delving into a Fortnum's picnic in the sunshine is a truly great British activity, especially when enjoyed alongside a season of exceptional summer sport.
2   A Famous Scotch Egg
   

 

If your appetite is for something a little more handheld than a full-blown picnic, there is only one option for the discerning tennis-watcher: a famous Fortnum's Scotch Egg.

 

 

What's more, if you're in the mood for an even more tenuous reason to tuck in, it's even shaped like a tennis ball.
3   A Bottle of Bubbles
   

 

Win or Lose – Champagne is always a good idea. Get into the spirit of the season and celebrate on our own perfect patch of lawn (or hill). If you’re planning an all-day affair, our Sparkling Tea is the perfect tea-total tipple.

 

 

It’s a certified organic blend of eight of our famous and rare brews – and despite its celebration-ready appearance, contains zero alcohol. Best enjoyed chilled.

4   Strawberries & Champagne
   

 

Strawberries and cream is undoubtedly a classic part of any British summertime soirée, but we think our Strawberry & Champagne preserve - delicious on scones and crumpets, or as the filling in a homemade jam tart or Victoria Sponge - gives that winning doubles partnership a real run for its money.

 

 

Best of all, a jar of this delicious stuff - which is really made with a liberal dash of our very own Champagne and real strawberries, lasts considerably longer than a bowl of strawberries and cream...
5   A Practical Partner
   

 

From the all-important picnic basket to the cosy rug, cool bag, picnic set and every accessory in between, our picnicware collection will have you kitted out and ready for the season.

 

 

Created using recycled materials and trimmed with natural leather details, our new fully insulated canvas bags are crafted for summer-after-summer of feasting, filled with every al fresco necessity, and perfect for picnics of all shapes and sizes.

6   A Fortnum's Parasol
   

 

Yes, technically it's an umbrella in the image... But we're taking a positive approach and assuming that rather than keeping the rain off, this will serve as a useful way to create some shade beneath the blazing British summertime sun.

 

 

That said: if the skies should turn a little grey then this will also keep the rain at bay. To the courts!
