Final chance to nominate for Beard of Wimbledon shortlist

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said the chance to nominate players for the first ever Beard of Wimbledon poll shortlist closes at midnight on Wednesday with the on-line poll opening on Thursday.

The Beard of Wimbledon poll opens on Thursday July 13th after allowing a reasonable observation of the large number of hirsute players now involved in Wimbledon.

The campaigners have not previously run a poll because tennis, with a few exceptions, has been a very clean-shaven sport. However observation of Wimbledon games so far has suggested this is changing, with many more beards now on display.

The BLF has a special team of beard monitors watching the games at Wimbledon.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, beards are everywhere at Wimbledon this year, even some of the Umpires have them.

  1. I am concerned that this poll is aimed at male tennis players as I have not notice an unshaven female competitor.
