Wimbledon History and Players
Wimbledon is probably the best known Tennis tournament in the world. First played in 1877, it is the oldest of the four major tennis championships and is the only major Tennis tournament to be played on grass.
The event is played annually at the All England Tennis Club during the last week in June and the first week in July and despite being played during the middle of the Great British summer, the weather during the Wimbledon Championships has become infamous over the years as rain and other adverse weather conditions often causes numerous interruptions to the play over the two weeks.
However, that will no longer be the case on Centre Court from now on after the the retractable roof was fitted earlier this year. The roof and the fitting of floodlights will mean that tennis can continue on Centre Court until much later in the evening. Wimbledon will no doubt remain one of the greatest sporting events held in Britain.
