Tennis Fans Anticipate Kosher Food at this Year's Wimbledon Championships

Thursday, 18 June, 2009 - 9:36 pm

Wimbledon KosherKosher food will be available this year at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships for the first time in its 122 year history.

Rabbi Dovid and Sora Cohen are offering a hot barbecue and cold sandwiches, as well as traditional strawberries and cream, every day of the two week tournament which attracts over half a million people each year.

"When we moved to London to work with students in South London, we didn’t know exactly where we were going to live," explains Rabbi Cohen, who co-directs Chabad of South London Campuses.

"When we found a house just 300 yards from Wimbledon's Centre Court, we knew that we had to do something like this during the tournament."

As well as serving food daily throughout the tournament, there will also be an open home Friday night meal on 26th June, and a special Shabbat programme on the finals weekend 3rd -4th July.
