Anyone for Tennis?


Since the first Championships in 1877, Wimbledon has become one of the world’s most famous tennis tournaments, attracting followers in their millions. It is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, considered by many to be the most prestigious. It has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London since 1877. Wimbledon is the only Major Grand Slam tennis tournament still played on grass, the game’s original surface, which gave the game of lawn tennis its name.

The tournament takes place over two weeks in late June and early July, culminating with the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Singles Final, scheduled respectively for the second Saturday and Sunday. Each year, five major events are contested, as well as four junior events and three invitational events.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     (source: Wikipedia)
