jamesOur Young Gentleman About Town James, attended the WTA Pre-Wimbledon party last week... 

Lights, cameras, tennis? The rain didn't put the dampeners on the WTA Pre-Wimbledon party at the Kensington Roof Gardens last Thursday evening, and the great and good of female tennis players showed out in full force.

When I arrived at the Roof Gardens slightly wet but looking no less glamorous, I walked the purple carpet and was whisked up a number of floors in an elevator. When the doors opened I was given a glass of champagne and showed to my hosts for the evening - none other than the fabulous team at Haagen Dazs UK. The party was getting going and I was taken to a covered awning to taste the Haagen Dazs offering for the Wimbledon customer. As the official Ice Cream of Wimbledon Haagen Dazs has created an ice cream bar to beat all others featuring those Wimbledon classics; the strawberry and cream centre contrasts with the bitter sweet chocolate coating perfectly.

While I continued to sample the offerings... for research purposes of course, I was introduced to some of the biggest names in women's tennis, one of which was Romanian player and number 5 in the world Simona Halep. During our conversation Simona let slip that even during training she has a bowl of chocolate ice cream EVERY single day. What luck then that she stumbled into the Haagen Dazs tent! A member of the company's PR team swept Simona up with promises of a supply of their famous Belgium chocolate ice cream sent to her hotel during the tournament. At that point I looked at myself in the mirror and decided that since I wasn't a world class tennis champion, I should probably put down my fourth ice cream bar and take the long walk home. . . Well, after making the rounds of canapés anyway.

The Haagen Dazs Strawberry and Cream Ice Cream Bar will be available exclusively from the Wimbledon tournament and also Selfridges Department Store, London.
