WIMBLEDON tennis fans have been warned about foul play – after woodland next to the All England Club was plugged on a dogging website.
Worried locals pinned a notice up in Wimbledon Park urging visitors to “respect our surroundings” and warning of police patrols ahead of the start of the tournament.
It came after website Dogging Action – which highlights outdoor venues where sordid romps can be viewed – promoted the park with a racy picture of two busty women posing on either side of a tennis net.
A post on the site said: “It’ll soon be Wimbledon fortnight and I always get extra horny around this time of year.”
It continues, “There’s a car park just yards from the All England tennis club where randy doggers regularly meet for outdoor sessions.”
And it seems the anonymous author of the post is right – as for several years swingers have sparked outrage by driving in for sex sessions at a car park just yards from the action on the courts, behind the All England Club.
High class hookers in the area have also been known to take advantage of the tournament by charging up to £140-an-hour for their saucy services.
The post even said one member of Dogging Action had confirmed it was a popular spot for exhibitionists to “go dogging after dark,” just yards from the centre court.
But thrill-seekers have been issued a warning notice by the “Friends of Wimbledon Park” to steer clear of romps in the woods.
The poster, attached to a tree on the edge of the car park, reads: “Dear visitors to beautiful Wimbledon Park during Wimbledon fortnight.
“We hope you enjoy the open space and woodland but please respect our surroundings.
“Regular police patrols will be on the lookout for anti-social behaviour especially in the woodland.
“This is a family space and please treat it as such and you’ll be more than welcome to visit again next year.
“Thank you. Friends of Wimbledon Park.”
One local, who lives near the stunning greenspace, said: “People gather in the park, with some camping there – and there are concerns it could become a meeting point for crude activities during the fortnight.
“People are aware it is a dogging hotspot and want to warn visitors off any anti-social behaviour during the tournament, especially after last year’s was cancelled.”
We told in 2019 how residents asked visitors not to have “sex and drugs parties” in the woods.
Tennis fans are set to flock into the area from today despite the All England Club operating at 50 per cent capacity.
Men’s champ Novak Djokovic, 34, hopes to defend his 2019 crown but women’s holder Simona Halep, 29, is injured – with Serena Williams, 39, the bookie’s favourite.
This year’s highly anticipated tournament is back with a bang after last year’s edition was cancelled due to Covid.
