No racket from vuvuzelas at Wimbledon
Wimbledon (England): Quiet, please. Organizers are making sure there will be no racket from
vuvuzelas at the Wimbledon tennis championships.
The plastic horns which have provided a constant drone at
the World Cup in South Africa will be banned from the Grand
Slam tournament, which starts Monday at the All England Club.
Wimbledon says in a statement that the horns "could be
very distracting to the players and spectators."
In addition, no World Cup games will be broadcast on the
big screens at Wimbledon and fans will not be allowed to bring
large flags into the grounds.
