Prince Wimbledon Tennis Ball Guess Contest

During Wimbledon this year Prince has a little contest going on that seems to be getting a bit of hype. Prince has got a container and filled it with tennis balls and all you have to do is guess how many tennis balls are in the container.

If you head to the Prince site here you can enter until the 5th July, but unfortunately this competition is only for USA citizens. This is the internet age Prince, get with it, anyone anywhere should be able to enter!

Prize = Autographed Prince racquet signed by Maria Sharapova. Approximate Retail Value of prize is $300.

If you want to see the container for yourself then you need to head to the HSBC Wimbledon in Rockefeller Center (June 22 – June 26).

To be fair, it’s not just Prince’s fault, you need licences in a lot of countries for a competition like this (to do it all by the book), and who can be bothered with all the hassle for that..
