When is Wimbledon this year?

Wimbledon 2017 will take place from Monday 3rd of July through to Sunday the 16th of July.

What makes Wimbledon different?

Tennis at Wimbledon is the stuff of legend. Apart from being the oldest tennis tournament, some unique characteristics separate a Wimbledon tennis match:

1. Players must be dressed in all white

2. The matches are played on grass courts

3. Spectators must feast on Strawberries dipped in cream with a round of Pimms*

*This last one is not necessarily an obligation, but still great fun!
