Get ready to enjoy the Wimbledon Championships like never before at Amex Tennis Town, an exclusive fan park hosted by Tennis SA (TSA) and American Express at Montecasino in Johannesburg from July 12-14.

Open from 1pm to about 10pm, Amex Tennis Town reimagines the traditional tennis viewing experience by combining live Wimbledon screenings with a range of engaging activities and entertainment from DJs during breaks in play.

You’ll be able to dive into virtual-reality tennis activations, capture fun moments in photo booths, and challenge your friends at tennis gaming stations. You’ll also have the chance to show off your sporting skills on a full-size tennis court, where interactive coaching lessons will be offered.

When you’re feeling peckish, head to the food village, where you can indulge in a wide range of culinary delights, including traditional favourites like strawberries and cream.

“We’re excited to bring you Amex Tennis Town, the first TSA-hosted fan park, during Wimbledon in SA,” said Gavin Crookes, president of TSA.

Our aim was to craft a memorable viewing experience for tennis enthusiasts. Bringing together both seasoned and new fans in a unique setting seemed the perfect approach, and we couldn’t have done this with a better partner than American Express, who are all about creating extraordinary experiences.”

“American Express has a long history of supporting tennis globally, and we’re delighted to host Amex Tennis Town,” said Briana Wilsey, Amex’s vice-president and the GM of Global Network Services EMEA.

“We’ve been a long-standing partner of Wimbledon, and we’re excited to provide our card members and tennis fans in SA with a memorable experience, bringing to life why tennis is better with Amex.”
