It's that time of year again – Wimbledon, arguably the best tennis tournament in the world, starts next week. Assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost dust off their picnic blankets, pack the strawberries and cream and talk tennis with British pro – and plucky underdog – Marcus Willis, who has been ranked as high as 209th in the world. We look at the state of the game in Britain and why more youngsters are heading to the US, including 19 year-old Paul Jubb, a Wimbledon wildcard entry who may have to reject his £45,000 cheque. We discuss life after Andy and the true financial cost of training a child up to become a top tennis player – and the physical and mental cost to boot. Marcus also reveals all about his truly remarkable run in Wimbledon in 2016 in which he played Roger Federer on centre court – and managed to lob the best tennis player in history. He also reveals how much money that summer made him and how bonkers life became after he was thrust in the spotlight.
It's been an interesting last couple of decades for Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club to say the least. They fell to the basement division, had plenty of stadium drama and now find themselves an established Premier League team. In this week's This is Moneyball podcast, assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost are joined by the Seagulls chief executive Paul Barber, who previously worked with the FA and Tottenham Hotspur. He's been at the club since 2012 and gives the rundown of his day-to-day job and how the role has evolved. There is insight as to why the club has been 'scouting' managers for years, before recently appointing Graham Potter, who has a master's degree in leadership and emotional intelligence. He also gives his views on money in the game and why it is a good thing, the 'fit and proper' persons test for chairmen – and how his ingenious plan to give away replica shirts to seven year-old fans is reaping dividends as the Seaside-club goes global.
