The five main competitions at the Wimbledon championship get all the attention but more and more mini-tournaments are being conceived in SW19 every year.

Today almost 100 of the world's media will battle it out on the famous lawns, a day before 20 drivers from the club's courtesy cars step onto court.

"The press have been itching to get on court for a couple of years and at last they will get their chance with what we hope will turn into an annual event," said organiser Robert Castorri, who is at Wimbledon for Atlanta radio station WSB/AM.

Meanwhile, Patricia Edwards, organiser of the drivers' competition said: "This must be the most talented group of chauffeurs in Great Britain.

"The tournament stars have seen how well they drive and we are fascinated to see how well they play tennis."
