No.1 Court

Coinciding with the refurbishment of No.1 Court at The All England Lawn Tennis Club, which stages The Championships, Wimbledon, we were invited to create a number of visual experiences for spectators to enjoy throughout their journey in the Grounds. Celebrating the theme of ‘Tennis in an English Garden’ we worked closely with the AELTC to explore the history the Grounds, focusing on the four flowers integral to the gardens at Wimbledon; Hydrangea, Agapanthus, Petunia and Rose. In addition, we continued this theme into our design for the official 2019 Wimbledon Championships poster, further celebrating the No.1 Court and the flowers synonymous with the gardens that surround it.


Agapanthus – literally translating from Latin as ‘love’ – responds to the love of the game and the care put into every inch of the famous Grounds. The Hydrangea – with its colour changing properties – celebrates the history of the first colour tv broadcast from Wimbledon. The Rose – an iconic British flower that reflects the victory and celebration of the winners of The Championships. And finally, the Petunia – a species from the deadly nightshade genus that celebrates the shots required in a players armoury to win a game, set and match.
