STRAWBERRIES and cream may be on the menu at this year's Wimbledon, but for the ultimate tennis fan there can be no more tempting choice than one of Christy's famous Wimbledon championship towels, as used by the players themselves.

For 2002, the Wimbledon range is sporting a new look, with the check design updated to feature a contemporary stripe.

The men's championship towel comes in the traditional colours of rich purple, green and gold, and the ladies' towel in lilac and sky blue. Prices for the championship towels are £23 each.

A match-winning combination of towels, the range also includes a men's and ladies' guest towel featuring the embroidered Wimbledon logo.

The men's guest towel is in a striking dark green and the ladies' is in an eye-catching lilac.

Also available is a contemporary face cloth set, which comprises two face cloths in the same colours.

Price for the face cloth set is £8 and the guest towels are available at £12 each.

New packaging has also been launched for 2002, in a trendy gym bag style — a must-have accessory on and off the court.

The 2002 Christy Wimbledon towel range is available from Christy concession shops in department stores and all good linen shops for 2002 only.
