Founded almost a century and a half ago in 1877, The Championships, Wimbledon has retained its original grass courts. Mowed to exactly 8 mm, the grass is graced by players during the two-week tournament only. In 2022, The Championships celebrates the 100th anniversary of Centre Court in its current home in the Church Road ground.
