Wimbledon Presidents’ Lunch Invitation for Mrs Mitchell

QM’s Head of Racquets, Karen Mitchell, has received a very special invitation to the Wimbledon Presidents’ Lunch for her services to county, club and schools Tennis and for her work as a Tennis Coach for over 30 years.

Karen successfully competes in her sport at a national level and has been to watch the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament many times before. She even played on the courts at Wimbledon representing Yorkshire back in 1982 but her visit this time promises to be extra special. She will enjoy champagne and canapés on arrival before hearing from guest speakers and having lunch. Her invitation includes a Centre Court ticket so she can watch the action from the best seats in the house before sampling the Wimbledon afternoon tea, which we imagine may include cucumber sandwiches and strawberries and cream!

Karen tells us “I am overwhelmed by the invitation and feel very honoured to have been asked to the Presidents’ Lunch. My family are delighted and very proud of my achievements in Tennis too. Of course I will certainly be talking fondly of my role at QM whilst I am there.”

We hope Karen has a wonderful time and enjoys this much deserved accolade.
