The Wimbledon Championship or simply Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and it’s often considered as the most prestigious. It’s been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon in London since 1877. The tournament takes places over two weeks in late June and early July. The tournament culminates with the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s singles final. Wimbledon traditions include a very strict dress code for competitors and Royal patronage.
