Wimbledon


Wimbledon has been home of the world-famous championships for over 100 years which attracts millions of fans to the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. Wimbledon is also famous as it is the last of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments in the world to be played on grass. The tournament takes place in late June to early July for 2 weeks, finishing with the Ladies’ and Gentlemens’ Singles Final, scheduled usually during the weekend.

Wimbledon is well known for a number of traditions including a strict all white dress code for competitors and the consumption of strawberries and cream by spectators. Each year members of the British and overseas Royal Families attend matches and can be seen enjoying the games from the Royal Box.

Apart from the Championships, Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is an interesting place to visit. It opens to the public daily with a 3D cinema teaching visitors about the science of the game and professional tennis player and legend, John McEnroe virtually appearing in the changing room! Visitors also have a chance to feel the weight of the trophy and play a game to test their reaction skills in simulations. There is also a behind-the-scene tour of the grounds where you can learn about how Wimbledon’s distinctive grass is cared for and how the site is improved and developed each year.
