To help get you prepared for two weeks of crosscourt volleys and thundering backhands, we’re serving a selection of ace tennis apps right at you.
The Championships, Wimbledon 2015
The official app for Wimbledon brings you everything you need; you’ll be able to see live scores, results, the order of play, draws, news, live blog updates and even player profiles. There’s visual content, offering you video previews, highlights, interviews and golden moments. And you can also select your favourite player, prompting performance results when he or she is battling it out on court.
The Ball Boy – Wimbledon Edition
Ever wondered whether you could endure the pressure of ball boy-ing? Find out using this quick and addictive app. The aim of the game is to grab as many tennis balls as possible, before the players go berserk. Collect strawberries and cream for an extra five points, of course, but do your best to avoid any banana skins, they’ll result in a 10 point deduction.

There are different game modes to choose from; World Domination lets you take on the all-time greats, Slams gives you the opportunity to lead your favourite player to glory, and Friends Challenge will draw you against you mates, helping you secure bragging rights.
