England boasts a grand sporting tradition and a packed annual calendar for sports fans. Recently there has also been much to celebrate after the successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the end of the 70 year wait for a British Wimbledon male champion.
However, there’s more to British sport than just Wimbledon and the Olympics. Rowing is a great British sporting institution hosting the Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge University and the century old Henley Royal Regatta. Henley is a highlight of the English social season where men dress in their best blazers, boater hats and ladies in their finest frocks and not only can we secure passes to this premier event but we can also gain you access to host lunch in the exclusive Leander Club.
Another great English tradition is Cricket, a civilised sport that still stops for tea and has been elevated to near-religious levels of fandom in India, Pakistan, the West Indies and the Antipodeas. The most famous event in the British cricket calendar is The Ashes test series, played between England and Australia, and named after the trophy containing the burned stumps from the first time these countries met on the crease. We can provide special access into the home of British Cricket and the M.C.C: Lords Cricket Ground, so you can soak up the lively atmosphere of this great sport in style. England has recently been celebrating great success in the competition by successfully holding onto the Ashes in the last three test series.
