Wimbledon is the world’s oldest tennis tournament. Founded in 1877 at the All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club, the ‘Wimbledon’ name comes from the area in which it resides, a suburb of southwest London.
The tournament has five different main events: Men and Women’s singles, Men and Women’s doubles and mixed doubles with extra tournaments held for junior, senior and wheelchair players.
The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club hosts Wimbledon each year. There are two main courts, ’The Centre Court’, fitted with a retractable roof to stop rain delays and ‘No.1 Court’. The other 17 courts are used for other events hosted by the club.
