Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam tournament still played on grass courts. All the players, even the clay courters, speak reverently of the tradition and “special” atmosphere of SW19.
Played at the All England Club in the London suburb of Wimbledon, it is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, having begun in 1877.
Taking place over two weeks in late June and early July, Wimbledon culminates with the gentlemen’s singles final, scheduled for the second Sunday. In addition to being the oldest tennis tournament, Wimbledon is also seen as the most prestigious.
Wimbledon 2016 commences on Monday July 3 with the final to be played on Sunday July 16.
