The Great Robinsons Ball Hunt marks the brand’s 80-year partnership with Wimbledon, and each tennis ball will represent a special moment in the The Championships' history. 

Brand ambassador and former tennis pro Tim Henman will post clues as to the whereabouts of the tennis balls on the Robinsons Twitter page each day between 25 June and 7 July.

Those who think a tennis ball is near them are encouraged to track it down, capture an image of the ball and post it to Twitter using the hashtag #HuntForWimbledon.

The first ball was found in Swansea, meanwhile the second has been unveiled in Plymouth. 

Robinsons is the official still soft drink of Wimbledon, which starts today (29 June) and continues until 12 July.
