Wimbledon Wild Card Katie Boulter Stays in Airbnb During Tournament

As the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament gets underway, one of its rising stars is choosing to stay in a local listing on Airbnb whilst she competes.

21 year old Katie Boulter, the upcoming British star who won one of only eight Wild Cards for 2018, selected a stunning family property as her ‘home away from home’ to relax in after a tiring day on the court, courtesy of Airbnb.

The property sports four beautiful king sized bedrooms along with a state-of-the-art kitchen and a spacious, green garden. A traditional brick home building with stylish, modern décor designed to offer comfort and convenience, it is truly an idyllic London home.

“Being able to call my Airbnb home over the next couple of weeks allows me some much needed downtime in between matches. Whenever I stay in a listing on Airbnb, I love to unwind by exploring the local area and getting to know the best spots nearby. It’s also great that I can get to and from the tournament so quickly! I love having the freedom to cook whatever I want and relaxing in my own space, so I can really focus on my game.”
