About


The Championships, Wimbledon or simply known as Wimbledon or The Championships, is the oldest tennis tournament on the tour and is considered to be the most prestigious as well. Winning the tournament is a treasured dream for many and a title here is a highlight in a player’s career. The first edition of the tournament took place in 1877. It’s currently one of the four Grand Slam events held in a year, and the only one still played on grass. Earlier, except for the French Open, all three Majors were played on grass, but the Australian Open and the US Open switched to hardcourts later on.



Venue and Dates


The tournament has been held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London since its inception. There are 18 grass courts in the complex, with the Centre Court being the biggest of them. Currently, it has a seating capacity of 15,000. It is also one of two courts with retractable roofs, with No. 1 Court being the other. It’s the second biggest court with a capacity to seat 12,345 people. The event takes place over the course of two weeks, with the tournament generally starting on the last Monday in June. This year, it’s set to begin on 27 June 2022 and conclude on 10 July 2022.



Points Distribution and Prize Money


As of now, no ranking points are to be awarded for this year’s Wimbledon. Due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the tournament organizers decided to ban Russian and Belarusian players from competing this year. The ATP and WTA, in turn, decided to strip the tournament of ranking points.



The total prize money for this year’s edition is £35,016,000.

Defending Champions


Novak Djokovic defeated Matteo Berrettini to win the men’s singles title last year. It was his 20th Grand Slam title and sixth at Wimbledon. In women’s singles, Ashleigh Barty defeated Karolina Pliskova to claim her second Major title. The Australian retired earlier this year and as such won’t be defending her title.
