It is almost that time of the year when people would go watch a sporting event in their formal suits and gowns. You’ll only see that during Wimbledon season which is scheduled to start on Monday, June 29 and ends on Sunday, July 12. Wimbledon in South West London is the place where one of four annual Grand Slam tennis tournaments is held around the world happens.
But not this year, because Wimbledon, traditionally the third Grand Slam of each year following the French Open, is cancelled due to public health concerns linked to the coronavirus epidemic. The 134th Grand Slam tennis tournament will now be held on June 28-July 11, 2021.
Many will miss watching the tennis tournament in unpredictable weather, tasting strawberries slathered with cream, and the festive mood that is enjoyed by the horde of people who are not in the least bit interested in tennis for the rest of the year. Wimbledon has been considered a British institution and the competition has not been cancelled since WWII. It is considered as the highlight of the UK summer sporting event.
No less than Roger Federer and Serena Williams, both finalists in 2019, were equally devastated as they would have lesser opportunities to win a Wimbledon this year.
Stay Home, Stay Safe
But it is not the end of the world. Life still goes on albeit in the “new normal” where people have to stay home and communities have to be quarantined in order to prevent the deadly COVID-19 from spreading.
There are many ways to find entertainment while confined in the home. A great source is, of course, the internet. However, it is unhealthy to remain sedentary while binge watching the re-runs of Wimbledon tennis matches and munching on equally unhealthy snacks.
The important factor here is to maintain good health physically, mentally, and even spiritually to survive this crisis. Since you now have more time, why not start that hobby you’ve been wanting to try or open that book you’ve been meaning to read.
