2. CityMapper No, CityMapper technically isn’t a tennis-related app at all, but with London being such a big place, and a majority percentage of the crowd not coming from London at all, it’s more than likely that you’re going to need a hand getting to the Wimbledon arena in as timely and stress-free fashion as London’s public transport network can allow. Punch in Wimbledon arena into this brilliant free app and you’ll get instant, free info on the most efficient route to your destination.
