This year marks Hertz’s 20th year as the official transport supplier for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. As part of the anniversary celebrations, Hertz will debut tennis-themed games and prizes for fans, says the company.

Hertz will feature “Winning Service Tips” across the billboards at Wimbledon station in association with the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards loyalty program. Then fans can utilize the tips in Hertz’s tennis serve target game, says the company. The best servers who hit the targets will be entered to win tickets for the men’s final next year.

In addition, Hertz is also giving away a pair of tickets to a participant who Tweets a Wimbledon-inspired picture with the hashtag, #winningservice.

This year, Hertz is providing 165 vehicles to transport players and staff more than 250,000 miles in 17,000 journeys during the next two weeks, says the company. The fleet includes 150 Ford Galaxy and 15 Ford S-Max vehicles.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating our second decade as the official transport supplier for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships,” said Michel Taride, president of the Hertz International Group. “I'd like to thank the hard working drivers and staff who have delivered a winning service year-over-year, ensuring that players and staff have a smooth and pleasant journey to and from their matches.”
