In addition to other on site activities such as Wii Tennis, live match screenings and complimentary strawberries and cream, Prince will be giving fans both in Rockefeller Center, and on-line, the chance to guess the number Prince tennis balls housed in a larger-than-life container. The container will remain on display at Rockefeller Center throughout the event where passersby can fill out a form to submit their guess.

Prince will promote its Wimbledon Ball Guess contest through its corporate website as well as by reaching out to consumers via its Official Prince Tennis Facebook page and recently launched Prince Twitter page.

Said Glassel, "While fans will certainly get two weeks of thrilling Wimbledon match play from Prince ATP and WTA touring pros, we wanted to also provide an engaging interactive offer that would help to make the 2009 Championships even more exciting. The promotion could not be easier - simply log on and guess. The unique aspect is the fact that we have taken what is typically an offline promotion and made it available to players and fans online."
