Croatian Now An Interactive Language Option At The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum.








 Now you can listen to interactive audio in the Croatian language at the Wimbledon Museum.







With Croatian becoming a more and more recognizable language and a language option all over the internet, (as well as a soon to be official language of the European Union), this little tidbit is a cool piece of news. I've already touched upon this topic on previous additions to this blog, but any opportunity to add a vid of Goran Ivanisevic is alright with me.

Croatia Calling




(London, October 2010): The award winning Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum and Tour continues to deliver an outstanding experience to visitors. The latest on offer at the Museum is the introduction of the Croatian language to the already extensive array of audio guide languages provided.

This exciting addition to the selection of languages, sees Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum as the first Museum in the country to provide a Croatian audio guide, and brings the total of languages available to nine. The eight other languages include; English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Russian and Mandarin. Furthermore, the guides are not only in local languages but also identify with the relevant local exhibits on display in the Museum.

The introduction of the language lends itself to the exciting eastern European talent in the tennis world. The language will also be incorporated into the CentreCourt360 touchscreens, a recent addition to the Museum which allows guests to enjoy a 360 degree view of Centre Court within a new viewing pod and two interactive rooms, providing an up close view of the court form the eyes of the spectator.

The Croatian focus doesn’t stop there however. The 21st Century exhibition at Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum contains a permanent display of items belonging to Championship winner Goran Ivanisevic.

Visitors may view the racquet belonging to the tennis star, complete with elastic bands attached to minimise vibrations which Ivanisevic used to economise during tougher times! Also showcased, is the shirt worn during his winning match which is currently on loan from a spectator who caught the shirt at the end of the game. Further to this, tennis fans can look forward to the upcoming addition of a dress donated by Jelena Jankovich in 2007 to the Ladies’ Dressing Room showcase.








Wimbledon hosts some of the world’s best tennis that is rich in history and quintessentially British. Supporting this, Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum presents the past, present and future of the sport and has clearly set its sights on becoming the ultimate destination for tennis fans around the world.
