All England Club, Wimbledon, London, England
Two Weeks in Late June / Early July
Formerly known as The British Open, The Wimbledon Championships is the oldest tennis tournament in the world.
Considered by many to be the biggest and most prestigious of all tennis tournaments, The Wimbledon Championships has taken place at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London annually since 1877. One of the four Grand Slams (the others being the Australian Open, French Open and US Open), Wimbledon remains the only major tennis tournament to be played on grass courts.
Taking place over two weeks in late June / early July each year, this sporting event concludes with the Ladies' and Men's Singles Finals which are batled out on the last Saturday and Sunday respectively.
As the oldest tennis tournament in the world, Wimbledon holds many traditions, including a strict dress code for all competitiors, the consumption of strawberries and cream by the spectators and the presence of a member of the Royal Family. There is no advertising around any of the courts, unlike at many of the other Grands Slams, and the Centre Court has recently been fitted with a retractable roof to allow for more court time, even in the face of the typical English rain.
