How To Master The Wimbledon Queue

Everything you need and everything you need to know

Wimbledon queue camping tennis tournament 2016

Finals day is fast approaching, which means the desperation to be part of Wimbledon is mounting (raises hand, that's me).

Each year Instagram is flooded with people camping in the infamous Queue and this year we're throwing caution to the wind and joining the throngs to battle it out for a prime position on Murray Mound.

If like us you want to a part of the action, this is what you are going to need...

1 OEX Bandicoot II 2-Person Tent

The guidebook to the camping stipulates only two man tents may be permitted and this one looks like the fanciest one to us. Very spacious and incredibly light OEX specialise in adventure gear - seems to set the tone.

OEX Bandicoot 2 Person tent, £109.99, Go Outdoors

2 Halfords Folding Grey Armchair

Very easy to forgot, the humble folding chair. But those wear limbs are going to need some rest, and bonus is Wimbledon inspired purple.

3 Longhcamp Le Pliage Overnight Bag

Light, waterproof, and way chicer than a Sainsbury's bag. We suggest Marie Kondo type folding.

Overnight bag, £65, Longchamp

4 Yolke Silk Pyjamas

Being a very British affair, Wimbledon is no time for sad pyjamas, it is indeed time for silk pyjamas. Think Blair Waldorf doing camping.

5 Jessica Russell Flint Silk Eye Mask

Post the festivities you will actually want some shut eye. Blast out that early morning glare and look incredibly fancy doing it.

6 Hunter Boots Umbrella

A few splashes of rain only enhance the flavour of strawberries and cream...let's pretend.

Inevitably prepare for the worst.

9 Sandro Suede Jacket

Must buy with the pac-a-mac. Must. Way warmer than that denim jacket you were going to wear.

Suede jacket, £247.50, Sandro

10 Wimbledon x Polo Ralph Lauren

Official sponsors and official outfitters, be part of the pack.
