The Pride of Dunblane

"Pride of Dunblane," is a dance celebrating Andy Murray's 2nd Wimbledon win, July 10, 2016 after his first on July 7, 2013.  His 2013 win made him Britain's first Wimbledon men's singles champion in 77 years!

Born in Glasgow, Andy Murray grew up in Dunblane.

And while you're thinking about it, why not have a Pimm's cup, a classic Wimbledon cocktail.  The Pimm’s Cup’s origins date back to 1832, when London oyster bar owner James Pimm started offering guests a gin-based beverage containing quinine and a secret blend of spices. The elixir was dubbed as a digestion aid, and served to patrons in small tankards known as “No. 1 Cups”. The drink’s popularity quickly grew, and by the end of the 19th century it was ubiquitous all over the United Kingdom. The first Pimm’s bar opened at the 1971 Wimbledon tournament, and today over 80,000 pints of Pimm’s and lemonade are sold there to spectators each year!
