About

Experience two weeks of first-class tennis, served with strawberries and cream, at the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships.

The world of tennis descends on Wimbledon in south-west London every summer for the longest-running tennis tournament in the world, and one of four annual Grand Slam tennis events held around the globe.

Games are still played on the original playing surface, grass, and there's a strict white-only dress code for players.

The tournament attracts around 500,000 spectators including the royal family and millions of TV viewers worldwide.

2022 is a historical year for Wimbledon. Not only does it mark 100 years of Centre Court, but also the permanent introduction of play on the Middle Sunday for the first time. 2022 also welcomes the first year of the 14&U Junior Championships.
