Apparently the seats at Wimbledon are being made bigger to accommodate the growing army of larger-framed tennis fans, who find the existing seats uncomfortable. It seems that whilst the tennis players are getting fitter, the fans are getting bigger and bigger! Maybe it’s eating an excess of the traditional Wimbledon fare of strawberries and cream that’s to blame! Either that or the fact that one in four Brits is now clinically obese - three times the rate in the 1990s. The new seats will be 18in wide and ready in time for this year’s June tournament.
