Wimbledon Championships Description

Wimbledon Championships - Tennis in London.

Wimbledon, or The Championship, Wimbledon in London, England is one of four Grand Slam tournaments played throughout the year and runs over a period of weeks in June and July. The tournament takes place at The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and is the only major tournament that is played on a grass court.

There is some debate about where tennis started, what's not in question is Wimbledon's standing as the first official tennis tournament, dating back to 1877. The final matches of the tournament are played on Centre Court, which has a capacity of 15,000 and features a retractable roof (a much-needed addition due to London's inclement weather). Traditions at Wimbledon include eating strawberries, watching matches on big-screens from the grassy lawns outside the stadiums, spotting a royal family member in the stands, and of course wearing all white - a strict dress code the players must adhere to.

Past Wimbledon champions include John McEnroe, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf, Roger Federer, Serena Williams, and Rafael Nadal.
