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 3–16 July, and all eyes will be on reining men’s champion Novak Djokovic, who will defend the men’s single crown which he bagged in both 2021 and 2022. But we’ll be keeping an eye out for our British number one Cameron Norrie, who reached the semi-final in 2022, losing to the eventual winner – and Katie Boulter, who recently overtook injured Emma Radacanu as British women’s number one.

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. And for those feeling inspired, we’ve got a round-up of the best tennis clubs in London, too.
