In the blissful and lovely countryside of Buckinghamshire rests the enchanting Stoke Park, a 5-star country club, hotel and spa. It is an absolutely lovely building that enjoys an iconic location in between exquisite monuments, impressive gardens and pleasing lakes.
In 1908, Stoke Park became the first hotel to become a country club and prides itself on having one of the best golf courses in the world. However, the highlight of the club is undoubtedly the Boodles Tennis championship.
The Boodles tennis championship is a traditional warm-up event which is conducted a week before Wimbledon, and many top tennis players participate in it to ready themselves for the big tournament ahead. It gives a chance for the members to enjoy a garden party and some enthralling tennis matches.
The grounds of Stoke Park are maintained very well, and give an extremely lavish look, perfect for entertaining guests, friends, and business associates. Want an event chauffeur to attend Boodles? Book our luxury carriages for the perfect royal rides!
The facilities are exceptional. The courts are very well maintained and have fine, coarse grass that is up to the standards of Wimbledon. The spa is also award-winning and offers some great services, and the fine dining restaurant, Humphry’s boasts 3 AA rosettes.
They also offer 2 packages:
This package offers guests the chance to have a perfect dining experience at the Palladian Mansion located at the heart of Stoke Park. An amazing and renowned chef prepares delicious and mouth-watering food and serves some fine wine, after which guests can take a walk in the fabulous gardens. A seat will be reserved for them so they can watch the tennis games with ease. Later on, afternoon tea will also be served to the guests.
In addition to all these services, guests will be provided with a hostess that will be their guide and assist them all through the day.
This is a pretty royal package and gives a chance to the guests to enjoy a full course gourmet meal and some fine quality drinks. A private courtside box will be assigned to them for them to view the tennis games with peace while enjoying the tranquillity and calm of their surroundings.
Not just that, there will also be a question and answer session with the stars, allowing guests to meet their favourite stars and interact with them and even take photos.
Boodles is the combination of a perfect English garden party and the best tennis sports events. The guests get the chance to see some of the best tennis players, such as Andy Murray, Pete Sampras, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
The players also get a chance to warm up for Wimbledon in a relaxed manner. The attendees feel involved in the game as the seats are arranged so that no one is sitting further than 10 metres. This allows guests to look at the game very closely and feel the power of the ball’s speed and shots. The players also live in the moment and enjoy the game. It is not a highly competitive championship which helps them reveal their lighter sides.
Even though the tennis is great and you will get to meet all your favourite stars, the event has so much more to offer. As mentioned above, the fine wine, meals and walk through the enchanting parks are amazing experiences that you should try.
In addition, do not forget to check out the Boodles gallery which has some amazing jewels on display for its audience to look at.
