Carlisle Support Services has just been awarded a three-year contract to provide security guarding and stewarding services for the All-England Lawn Tennis Club (Championships) Limited (AELTC).

The AELTC, of course, is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious private members’ tennis clubs and the home of The Championships at Wimbledon, widely recognised as one of the world’s premier sporting events.

In addition to 24-7/365 site security, Carlisle Support Services will also be providing in excess of 350 event staff during the two weeks of The Championships.

Adrian White, operations director at Carlisle Support Services, said: “We’re delighted and honoured to be working with this iconic venue. We’ve already built a good working relationship with the AELTC security team and we understand the culture of the venue and the goals they’re looking to achieve.”

White went on to state: “Wimbledon is a unique event and location. For 50 weeks of the year it’s a tennis club and for two weeks of the year it takes centre stage in the sporting calendar. Our experiences with other major sporting venues that have similar calendars, such as Ascot and Lords, mean that we understand the contrasting needs of the client. We’re really looking forward to a positive working relationship.”

Stephen Grainger, head of security at the AELTC, responded: “We’re delighted to have selected Carlisle Support Services to deliver what is an important component of our security provision for both our year-round operations and The Championships, and we very much look forward to working with them and our other service providers.”
