Information on Wimbledon

Three cheers for the dark green and purple! These royal and dignified colors are representative of Wimbledon, where tennis pros from across the world compete on the 19 rye grass courts of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. This well-known affair is held every summer for two weeks in London. This year, it is slated June 26 through July 9.

It is the third Grand Slam event of the year following the Australian Open and French Open, and before the US Open. The five main events held at Wimbledon include Gentlemen's Singles, Ladies' Singles, Gentlemen's Doubles, Ladies' Doubles, and Mixed Doubles.Ironically, no British man or woman has won a Wimbledon singles events since 1936 and 1977, respectively.

The history behind the prestigious landmark inspired the construction of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum where exhibits include the social history of tennis, the development of equipment, videos of great players and interactive quizzes and databanks. Also available for viewing pleasure are collections of tennis outfits, rackets, balls and other tennis memorabilia.Any tennis fan knows that you are not truly a genuine fan until you visit Wimbledon. Between the extreme display of talent and the cultural atmosphere, there's just nothing like it in the world!.
