Wimbledon's famous annual tennis tournament is coming up soon, with the sporting event due to take place from Monday June 29 to Sunday July 12.
The tennis event is watched rapturously by millions across the UK, with many people consuming lots of strawberries and champagne to celebrate!
But if you're looking to get a photo with Andy Murray this year, you may have to get a little closer up. The All England Lawn Tennis Club has banned selfie sticks from this year's Wimbledon Championships due to their nuisance value.
The long instrument allows a person to take a wide-angle photograph of themselves, and will not be allowed on the premises during this year's tournament.
The ticketholders' guide said: "In common with many other major sports and entertainment events and cultural attractions, the championships will not allow selfie sticks into the grounds."
Outside of sport, the Palace of Versailles in Paris, the Colosseum in Rome and the National Gallery in Trafalgar square have prohibited selfie sticks.
