Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum Houses Sport’s Greatest Collection of Books and Magazines

“It is fitting that the quietest place at Wimbledon is the library. “It’s an oasis,” said Audrey Snell, who has worked there for 15 years. About 40,000 fans crowd onto the grounds of the All England Lawn Tennis Club each day during the tournament, filling Centre Court, smothering Henman Hill and shuffling among matches, sipping Pimm’s and nibbling strawberries. Only a few each day find their way to the library, with the sport’s greatest collection of books and magazines.” (via NYT)
