Wimbledon starts: banners in Southfields

Wimbledon 2012: a banner on a lamp-post

A busy summer of sports continues, despite England’s exit from Euro 2012, as the tennis tournament in Wimbledon starts today, and it is going to be a very busy fortnight in Wimbledon and Southfields. It is probably a sign of my inattentiveness, but I do not remember seeing so many banners on lamp-posts in the green-and-purple Wimbledon colours near the Southfields tube station in the previous years. I think they look pretty good, and much better than the Evian flags found in Wimbledon Village.
