Wimbledon Tennis - What to wear?

I was teaching yoga at last week's Wimbledon tennis qualifying events and here was how the week went in photos.
Warm sunny days require sun glasses, hats, and sun cream.

Ball boys and girls have a rest in the Sunshine (they had in fact been stretching before I took this photo.)

Things start to go a bit down hill on the weather front. Oooh, think I can spot some rain from up here.

Wimbledon Tennis Qualifiers 2011

My favorite job has come around again - working at the Wimbledon Tennis qualifiers. This will be my 18th year doing the "warm up" sessions at this event. My son, who was a babe in arms the first time I did these sessions, will be joining me as a ball boy. It will be interesting to see if he pays attention to this instructor?!

Over the years I have seen many of the worlds top tennis players at this event; either participating for a place at the Championships or coming along to watch the competitors in action.

This is the 125th anniversary of the Wimbledon Championships. Let's hope the sunshine returns to London for the next three weeks!
