London July 2017: Wimbledon

13 Jun 17

The world of tennis descends to London every year, for two weeks of tantalising tennis, Pimm’s and a whole lot of strawberries. Wimbledon is the highlight of the summer calendar – so if you’ve booked your London vacation for early July you are in luck! 

When is Wimbledon?

Wimbledon 2017 commences on Monday July 3 with the final to be played on Sunday July 16th 

How do I get tickets?

Getting tickets to the tournament is no easy feat – you need to plan in advance, camp over night, or pay a pretty penny.

Wimbledon is one of the few major sporting events that you can get tickets for on the day. They’re cash only (£20-148) and just one per person and you’ll be expected to camp overnight

Sound like too much trouble? Fret not, there are plenty of out-door screens dotted around the city that offer bags of atmosphere – the most famous being Murray Mound (née Henman Hill). This is a high ground adjoining Court No 1, which has a big screen on the outside wall, admission is roughly £20. 

Wimbledon Facts

Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and is widely considered the most prestigious. The inaugural 1877 Wimbledon Championship started 9th July and the Gentlemen’s Singles was the only event held. 

With this long history come traditions aplenty… including a strict dress code for competitors and Royal patronage.

Here are some tennis-tastic numbers for you to wow your friends and family:
