Wiimbledon in Cardiff 2008

From Wales online, June 7th 2008

"IT’LL be right in the middle of Wimbledon fortnight – but there will be no new balls in sight.

The “Wiimbledon” tournament will take place in Cardiff while the players taking part in its more famous cousin take a break on the middle Sunday.

But unlike the prestigious London competition, there will be no grass, no ball boys, no nets – and definitely no rain.

That’s because the tournament will feature participants competing only on the Nintendo Wii, who will swap tennis rackets for remote controls."

"... the winner will be given a £250 cheque to donate to the charity of their choice."

Kiml42 was the 2008 champion, donating the money to the Drala Jong appeal.
