Gluten Free Food At Wimbledon Tennis

We're just entering my favourite time of the year, the grass court tennis season. Thought I would do a bit of research and find out what the gluten free situation is with regards to attending Wimbledon fortnight.

It was far easier than I expected, unlike the official information for the 2012 Olympics. This is what the official Wimbledon site has to say:

"People with special dietary requirements should bring with them what they need to eat and drink to avoid disappointment. A limited choice of pre-packed gluten-free foods can be purchased on request in the Aorangi Food Court."

That's fair enough I think. At least they're honest about it. I'd far rather take my own food than be promised a great selection only to discover there isn't one.

One thing they should definitely stock though is the gluten free Byron Bay Strawberry and Clotted Cream Cookie, you can't get much more Wimbledon than that!

Out of interest I just had a quick look at the Queens Club website to see if they have gluten free options in their Members Cafe but sadly there is no mention of any. I thought that with 2 of the top 4 male players in the world eating gluten free diets (Djokovic and Murray for whatever reasons), that it may have brought awareness. And options!

If you are headed to Wimbledon and you're on a gluten free diet, take your own food so you don't go hungry!
