I entered the famous Wimbledon mound through the METAVERSE for a virtual picnic – and “met” Andy Murray

WIMBLEDON is the latest real-world event to jump into the virtual metaverse.

The competition and grounds have been transported to Roblox to celebrate 100 years of the iconic Center Court.

The digital recreation is pretty decent, although not nearly as great.

And you can even play tennis against other players, even on center court – something most of us won’t get a chance to do in real life.

Or you can of course just sit and watch other players.

It’s a pretty chilled environment that really suits Wimbledon.

However, Center Court is unusually noisy – that would never wash away with referees in the real world.

Outside you can explore other smaller tennis courts.

There’s even space for a picnic – and no risk of the unpredictable British summer turning to rain.

Sir Andy Murray can also be found.

Of course, it’s just a virtual replica and he’s just providing you with a guide on how to get around.

Apparently, if you have 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 are video highlights from the actual tournament on screens scattered throughout the venue.

WimbleWorld, as the Wimbledon metaverse is known, would not be complete without a gift shop.

Here you can exchange “Wimblebux” (the virtual currency) for digital goods, including items from Ralph Lauren’s Wimbledon 2022 collection.

Having recently attended Wimbledon for the first time, the Metaverse recreation will never trump the actual event and all the strawberries, cream and Pimms that come with it.

But it’s a fun way to appeal to a new generation with around 55 million daily active users.

There are even queues - but luckily you don't have to wait
