Founded almost a century and a half ago in 1877, The Championships, Wimbledon has retained its original grass courts. Mowed to exactly 8 mm, the grass is graced by players during the two-week tournament only. In 2022, The Championships celebrates the 100th anniversary of Centre Court in its current home in the Church Road ground. It now has a seating capacity of 15,000. Though ever-changing, the Wimbledon rules remain steeped in tradition, highlighting the organizers’ desire to maintain etiquette in the sport. Testament to this is the almost entirely white code for tennis attire. With the exceptional surface, respect for tradition, storied past and the greats who made their name on the courts of the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, Wimbledon is the temple of tennis.
