Advantages Good Site
Wimbledon may be nearly over, but throughout the tournament this website has been keeping people up to date with everything Wimbledon related.There is so much to this site that I'm going to miss bits out, but to try not to I'll do each different section one at a time.
The site is also pretty modern and interactive, with a host of web cam features! Menus are snazzy and of the automatic drop down style.Scores
A quick link from the home page brings up to the minute scores for every court to view. They are updated every two minutes, so you always know the exact score.This section also features an order of play listing, as well as full statistics on all the matches and players!
But what is an even better feature is the IBM Real Time Scoreboard. This small java applet keeps you updated with live scores. There is even a beta version of it that will talk to you, telling you the scores!!Players
This section tells you all about the most important part of Wimbledon - the players!There are stats, profiles and photos on all the seeds in the tournament, you can even see a full complete competitor list!
There are even interviews with the players, either in text format or watchable as a Real Player Movie. Add to this a photo gallery section and you spend a day in this section alone!!News
Does what it says on the tin. If something has happened at Wimbledon it will tell you here!!Interactive
Big section this one!As I said before you have the IBM Realtime Scoreboard, but this is only the tip of the interactive iceberg!
First up is the slam cams, which are interactive webcams placed at various points inside the grounds! My only criticism is that they barely ever work. Next are the netcams, which allow you to view recent images from around Wimbledon. The same as the slamcam really, except they aren't interactive.There is also plenty for the mobile phone user, including results by SMS and a WAP service.
Again, there is enough material here to play with that you could spend hours at it!Shop
Fancy spending some money? Then you can here! They sell loads of Official Wimbledon Merchandise, from bags to towels. It isn't cheap though, or do most towels cost £22?Juniors
This section of the site deals specifically with the junior game, providing similar information to the main site. Useful if you're in to this type of thing!Information
More than you ever wanted to know about Wimbledon! From the history, to buying tickets it's all here. Heaven for the Wimbledon fanatic!Official Suppliers
Everyone who sponsors Wimbledon gets their name here. For example, did you know that Coca Cola supply the (and I quote) 'Official Carbonated Soft Drink', or that Jacob's Creek supply the 'Official Australian Wine' of the tournament. As appealing as it may be, I haven't seen many players taking to the wine whilst out on court!!
