The Gaibledon secret is to cut the grass and press courts everyday and moreover there’s a tough Team, guys that work hard everyday from the morning till the night, when they ended the school but even before since March to prepare grassy lawn and the events organization thus a Team really strong and special where everyone has well defined task and in this way we have a successful set-up Like at Wimbledon, that sent an accomplished mail, even at Gaibledon, gardeners have a crucial role their task is to guarantee courts always perfect we are a team of 10/15 guys we are focused on the court maintenance and tournaments organization about courts booking also reserved to amateur players. There are people dedicated to paint lines, to cut grass. It’s incredible how they realized these 4 courts They handle them in such an incredible way, they have so much passion they cut the grass and paint lines everyday.. also yesterday I helped them painting lines. it’s so beautiful Melania Delai has chosen Gaiba to prepare her Wimbledon Junior debut and like everyone plays here, She fell in love for Gaibledon You must all come here because it’s a life experience and and meet all the Gaibledon Team is truly wonderful
