Wimbledon has arguably more history and prestige than any other sporting venue in the country. It was our job to make sure the museum respected and celebrated this rich history.
The museum combines these unparalleled tennis collections with state-of-the-art exhibition displays and audio-visual presentations. We want visitors to feel like they are at the Championships – using object displays, interactive games and engaging films to immerse people in the energy of the event.
objects in the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum collection
Sculpted mannequins of tennis legends in iconic poses are on open display including Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Martina Navratilova and Bjorn Borg. All the figures have been painstakingly recreated using photo references and true dimensions taken from the players’ actual tennis kit.
‘The Open Era’ gallery consists five different themes including – Broadcasting Wimbledon, A Year in the Life of a player, Behind the Scenes in the Dressing Rooms, The Rivalries Immersive Show and The Fame Game - with the main overall theme based around rivalries between players.
Test your reaction time at the Reaction Station. This interactive was originally designed for professionals to test their reaction times – and now visitors get a chance to test themselves.

awards since its opening
Looking out over Centre Court is one of the highlights of any visit to Wimbledon. We developed a pod with a 360 degree panoramic view of the court as part of a wider Stadium Tour. This was cleverly designed so that it could be easily deconstructed and re-erected annually when needed.
We have also worked with the All England Tennis Club to theme and brand their Centre Court Debenture facilities and external landscape with graphics, themed object displays and artistic sculptural installations.
We have also developed updated trophy displays to reflect the changing nature of the sport, and an Andy Murray selfie installation to celebrate his incredible Wimbledon win.
