Seen at Wimbledon Whites ...

It was a third-time lucky rain-date for the annual Wimbledon Whites event held last weekend and well worth the wait. We'll be holding more of these themed events in the upcoming season (next is scheduled for US Open opening weekend of Saturday, 26 August) and as you can see below the cosplay element is becoming increasingly competitive (well done James McKinnon, best dressed on the day). Thanks to Rob and Bronwyn for organising the very generous prize packs from sponsors Herne Bay Cellars and Rocket Espresso. Time to start planning your US Open-themed outfit now!
