Airbnb serves up its top Wimbledon and tennis-inspired stays

 The upcoming summer of sport is jam-packed with major tennis tournaments, with grand slams taking place throughout the season, including Wimbledon, the French Open and the US Open. Unsurprisingly, these popular sporting events are influencing travellers’ choices, with destinations such as France, the US, and the UK seeing increased interest according to Airbnb summer trends.* 

As excitement builds for the 2024 Wimbledon Championships, Airbnb has revealed its curated list of stays to celebrate the summer of tennis, including stays located conveniently close to the All England Lawn Tennis Club – Wimbledon’s iconic venue, as well as homes featuring tennis courts – so guests too can get stuck into the tennis action.

Ahead of the high summer season, Airbnb has also reported a surge in interest for outdoor amenities which has led to a 122%** increase in searches for Airbnb’s ‘Play’ category among UK travellers. This category includes play-centered amenities, such as tennis courts, basketball courts, game rooms, miniature golf, water slides, and more.

Amanda Cupples, General Manager for the UK, and Northern Europe at Airbnb, said: “As the 2024 Wimbledon Championships approaches, guests are keen to capture the spirit of Wimbledon right at their fingertips. Our curated list of unique stays, many equipped with tennis courts, or conveniently located close to the action of this summer of tennis, offer the perfect opportunity to create unforgettable experiences and enjoy the celebration of this iconic event.”
