Stocks in this article: HTZ

LONDON, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hertz Corporation (NYSE:HTZ), the world's largest general use car rental brand, will deliver a championship performance for the 20 th year running by ensuring that Wimbledon tennis stars reach their matches on time. As the official transport supplier for The Wimbledon Tennis Championships Hertz will provide 165 vehicles to chauffeur players and staff over 250,000 miles in 17,000 journeys during the next two weeks.

Hertz, official transport supplier to the Wimbledon Tennis Championships for the 20th year, offers tennis fans the chance to try out  "Winning Service Tips" in a specially designed tennis game.

Michel Taride, Group President, Hertz International, said: "We are thrilled to be celebrating our second decade as the Official Transport Supplier for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.  I'd like to thank the hard working drivers and staff who have delivered a winning service year over year, ensuring that players and staff have a smooth and pleasant journey to and from their matches."

As part of the 20 th anniversary celebrations, Hertz will be serving up Winning Service Tips across the billboards at Wimbledon station in association with the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards loyalty program. Fans waiting in The Queue will be able to try out these tips in a tennis serve target game designed by Hertz. Fans simply enter the Hertz tennis gallery situated near the queue to practice their ace, kick and slice serves, taking aim at Wimbledon and Hertz themed targets. The best servers who hit the targets are in with a chance of winning tickets for the men's final next year.

Neil Cunningham, General Manager, Hertz UK, added: "It's a blast engaging with fans through our experiential activity in The Queue, where they can try out our Winning Service Tips for tennis, courtesy of Hertz Gold Plus Rewards. While Wimbledon gives tennis stars the opportunity to lift the gold cup or plate, our loyalty program offers customers a gold rental experience."

Hertz's official fleet transportation during the tournament includes 150 Ford Galaxy and 15 Ford SMax vehicles, as well as two long wheel base vans and 2 executive coaches for VIP  transportation.
