Britain today is very much shaped around leisure, sport in particular (Coakley & Pike, 2009).
There is a wide variety of sports which cater for a large number of spectators.
Some are minority or class based sports such as rugby, golf and yachting while others such as football appeal to majority tastes (Coakley & Pike, 2009).
More recently, sport has become a major leisure activity globally (Houlihan, 2008).
Its prominence in the media which devotes considerable more coverage has significantly contributed to sports as a major leisure spectator activity.
According to Coakley & Pike (2009), Since its inception in 1877, wimbledon has become a famous tennis tournament globally with players from over 60 countries and is widely watched by millions of fans worldwide.
In the UK, tickets for Wimbledon are always on demand.
Sports play a vital role in modern contemporary society.
It is an integral part of life essential for the physical and mental well-being of individuals.
The pub has thus become Britain’s most envied and imperfectly imitated institution as sports lovers gather on neutral grounds and enjoy their leisure time watching football.
Most of the football fans would visit clubs and pubs to watch popular matches such as a match between West Ham United vs Manchester United.
