WIMBLEDON is the latest real world event to hop across to the virtual metaverse.
The competition and grounds have been transported to Roblox, to celebrate 100 years of the iconic Centre Court.

The digital recreation is pretty decent, though nowhere near as big.
And you can even play tennis against other players, even in Centre Court – not something most of us will have a chance to do in real life.
Or, you can just sit and watch other players of course.
It’s a pretty relaxed environment, fitting of Wimbledon really.

However, Centre Court is unusually noisy – that would never wash with referees in the real world.
Outside, you can explore other smaller tennis courts.
There’s even space for a picnic – and zero risk of unpredictable British summer turning to rain.
Sir Andy Murray can also be found.

Of course, it’s just a virtual replica and he just offers you some guidance on getting around.
Apparently, if you’ve got an Amex card you can access an exclusive Andy Murray Experience, where you can go on a quest with the virtual Sir Andy and take a selfie with him.
Even more interesting is video highlights from the actual tournament on the screens dotted around the place.
WimbleWorld, as the metaverse Wimbledon is called, wouldn’t be complete without a gift shop.
Here, you can exchange ‘Wimblebux’ (the virtual currency) for digital merchandise, including clothing items from Ralph Lauren’s 2022 Wimbledon collection.

Having recently attended Wimbledon for the first time, the metaverse recreation will never beat the actual event, and all the strawberries, cream and Pimm’s that come with it.
But it’s a fun way to engage a new generation, with some 55million daily active users.
There’s even queues – but you don’t have to wait thankfully[/caption]
