Our most recent work experience placement was a university undergraduate Michael who was in year 1 of studying sports journalism at university. Michael worked for us for the whole 2 weeks of Wimbledon and during that time he was tasked with watching a number of Wimbledon matches each day and then immediately writing match reports on tennishead.net. He was also responsible for posting the best photos of the day onto the tennishead Instagram feed.
