Centre Court

July 8, 2005

A bit more on my trip to Wimbledon, something I’ve never noticed on TV. The centre court roof slopes in to the middle so the rain, of which there is plenty, runs into the middle of the court where there is a gutter. However there are no down pipes as there are no pillars to spoil the view. The court has pumps to pump the rain water back up and out of the court.

I had to get that of my chest. It’s a geek thing.
