History


The first Wimbledon Championship was held in 1877 with the Gentlemen's Singles taking place. In 1884 the club added Ladies' Singles and Gentlemen's Doubles competitions. 1913 saw the introduction of the Ladies' Doubles and Mixed Doubles events. 

From 1912 to 1924 the tournament was known as the World Grass Court Championships. The Championship was first broadcast on television in 1937.

Wimbledon had the same rules as the other three Major or Grand Slam events (Australian Open, French Open & Us Open) which restricted entry to top-ranked amateur players. This changed in 1968 with the start of the open era when professional players were allowed to participate.

A retractable roof was built for the 2009 Wimbledon tournament to ensure that rain didn’t affect playing time on Centre Court. The first Wimbledon singles final to be played under the roof was the 2012 Men’s Singles Final between Roger Federer and Andy Murray.

In 2018 it was announced that a tie-break will be played if the score reaches 12–12 in the final set of any match. The new rule was introduced largely because of the 2018 Wimbledon Semi-Final between Kevin Anderson and John Isner which went to five sets, Anderson winning the fifth set 26-24.
