The All England Lawn Tennis Club

The Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon have developed from the garden party atmosphere of the first meeting in 1877, witnessed by a few hundred spectators, to a highly professional tournament attracting an attendance of over 450,000 people and through the press, radio, Internet and television a following of millions throughout the world.

The Tournament starts each year six weeks before the first Monday in August and lasts for a fortnight or for as long as necessary to complete all events. Players from over 60 nations regularly compete.
There are five main Championship events:
Gentlemen's Singles (128 draw)
Ladies' Singles (128 draw)
Gentlemen's Doubles (64 draw)
Ladies' Doubles (64 draw)
Mixed Doubles (64 draw)

Get close to the action on the outside courts. There are some great matches during the 1st week, and the tickets are easy to obtain.
