More on the silly Wimbledon uniforms…

However silly they look from the front, it seems like the Wimbledon line-judges are quite likely to look much sillier from the back, according to various news sources.

So, Wimbledon’s choice to use an outside (foreign) company for the first time in their long history has resulted in them becoming a bit of a laughing stock, not only because the clothes look daft (it’s been suggested that they could double up as Butlins uniforms), but because the clothes fall to bits after a few minutes of normal use.

I’m pretty sure they’d have done better to run a competition for UK Art and Design colleges to create and manufacture a new uniform, rather than pay an alleged $10 million dollars to an American company for shoddy products.

  1. The new uniforms are definantely more stylish than previous uniforms, particularly those of the mid-eighties. Lines staff looked like senior citizens at a bowling club and the ball boys and ball girls’ uniforms looked more like school PE kits.
