According to a release, “the animation aims to put a spotlight on the inspiring effect of Wimbledon whilst paying homage to tennis greats of the past and present.”

The short film tracks three tennis fans as they follow the sport, practice their shots and witness some of the great moments which have taken place at the venue. Tennis stars including Emily Raducanu and Serena Williams are depicted in the animation, which finishes with a shot of the Centre Court and the words “The Stage Awaits.”
