Wimbledon: Articles & Guides

The Wimbledon Tennis Championship is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and arguably the most famous. Since the first event took place back in 1877, it has grown to become one of the key events on the social sporting calendar, arriving in the UK for two weeks each summer. It’s the only Grand Slam tournament to be played on grass, with both the men’s and the women’s single competitions made up of 128 players. This year’s Championships will take place from 27 June to 10 July. For the first time, the tournament will be played over 14 days and include play on Middle Sunday, according to the official schedule. All eyes will be on Novak Djokovic, who will be allowed to defend his title after recent controversy at the Australian Open, alongside Emma Raducanu, who took the tennis world by storm when she won the US Open aged just 18. Here we’ll share guides to all things Wimbledon – from where to eat nearby to what to wear. If you haven’t managed to get tickets, there are plenty of places screening the tennis across the capital.
