The Championships, Wimbledon

The Championships, Wimbledon, are still played on grass courts – mowed to exactly 8 mm – just like they were in 1877 for the tournament’s inaugural edition. In 2022, Wimbledon celebrated the 100th anniversary of Centre Court at its current home in Church Road where it has a seating capacity of 15,000.

Though ever-changing, the Wimbledon rules remain steeped in tradition, highlighting the organizers’ desire to maintain the highest standards of etiquette. Testament to this is the rule that player attire must be predominantly white. With the exceptional playing surface, respect for tradition and a storied past decorated by the greats who made their name on the courts of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Wimbledon is the temple of lawn tennis.
