Callawassie Island celebrated the grand tradition of Wimbledon on June 24 with a unique take on the oldest tennis tournament in the world.

At “Callawassie Wimbledon” a grass court was created on the 9th fairway of the Dogwood Course. Tennis enthusiasts sipped on champagne while enjoying the classic Wimbledon dish of strawberries and cream.

“The atmosphere was just awesome,” said Callawassie Island tennis pro Bill  Hoppe. “Wimbledon in England has nothing on us!”
