Wimbledon catering chiefs having to lay on twice as much of the Japanese sushi this year to meet the growing hunger

Wimbledon tennis players are eating this to stay fit
The world’s top tennis players are ravenous for sushi, with Wimbledon catering chiefs having to lay on twice as much of the Japanese dish this year to meet the growing hunger.
Pasta was the traditional carbohydrate-heavy dish of choice for tennis professionals but demand for sushi at Wimbledon has doubled year on year, said Anthony Davies, the All England Club’s head of food and beverage.
“Making sure they have what they need in order to be match fit and deliver what they need to do on court is a big part of what we do,” he told AFP.
“It’s all about variety. Players make their own choices about what they eat. Pasta is a very, very popular dish because of the carbs – but sushi has grown in popularity.

wimbledon - pasta“It’s doubled year on year over the last three years. It’s a very popular product. It’s a good, solid dose of protein and carbs all in one small bite-sized piece so it probably works well.”

He said the range of food offered to players changes with the latest updates in sports science.
“We have long conversations with the ATP and WTA governing bodies about what’s new in nutrition and what the players are looking for each year and we introduce new products based on their input,” he told reporters.
