We're at that time of year synonymous with strawberries & cream, Pimm's on the lawn and a certain London centre court located in South West 19. To kick the season off in style on Thursday 13th of June Brodies LLP, Scotland's leading lawyers, hosted Scotland’s must-see tennis event of the summer. With legends of the sport including Tim Henman and Juan Carlos Ferrero descending on the Gleneagles Arena, Auchterarder.
Ferrero took the title with a 6-3 6-4 win against Tim Henman in an incredible final match! The legends then shared the court with some of Scotland’s most promising young tennis talent, with the event supporting the development of sport at grass-roots level.
Benholm were delighted to work closely with Bureau who were tasked with planning the Public Village and VIP lounge.
We were excited to be asked to install a selfie space for players and guests. After 'bouncing' a few ideas around (sorry😜) we decided upon a tennis ball design made by hand from Nordik Moss and a backdrop of lush foliage. Have a look and see how its done - if only it all happened this fast!
Here's a sneak peek of what's involved. From the before....
To the after....
We were delighted to see the stars having fun on the green carpet - and the Gleneagles mascots were working their best poses too!
The public village was supported by Pickerings Gin and Eastern BMW showcasing the stunning i8 - the space looked fantastic. We opted for some tall planting due to the high ceilings - making the space feel cosier, and full foliage to help fill the large space. Our white planters perfectly matching the white picket fencing to separate the space. Sleek monochrome planters added a little extra gloss with flowers bringing a splash of colour to the surroundings.
Team Benholm are all set (sorry again 😆!) for Wimbledon now! Especially the Pimms!
