Children across the U.K. can watch Blippi explore their home turf this week as he visits The Championships, Wimbledon in two new episodes of “Blippi.”

The first episode, titled “Blippi’s Wimbledon Match Day” launched on June 29 and the second episode, “Blippi Explores Jobs at Wimbledon,” was released on July 2.

The special episodes feature Blippi getting straight to work at the All England Club, London; from brushing up on his tennis skills on the pristine grass courts, to shadowing the ground staff, and visiting the commentary box, no racquet or tennis ball is left unturned as children get set to experience an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at The Championships, Wimbledon – the world’s oldest tennis event.

“Wimbledon is an iconic British moment watched by the world, and we’re excited to see Blippi celebrate it with UK fans for the first time,” says Katelynn Heil, general manager Blippi, Moonbug Entertainment. “These episodes are packed with courtside fun while exploring the teamwork and sportsmanship that define tennis. We can't wait for children to watch the episodes and hope they inspire families across the country to pick up a tennis racquet this summer!”

“We are always looking at ways to attract and engage Wimbledon’s next generation,” says Usama Al-Qassab, Marketing and Commercial Director for Wimbledon. “These episodes combine the excitement and fun of Blippi’s adventures with the magical world of Wimbledon, giving a behind-the-scenes look of The Championships and inspiring young fans. We hope children around the world watching will learn more about the different roles and areas onsite that make Wimbledon so unique and one day come and visit SW19 for themselves.”
