Wimbledon

The event is staged by the All England Club and the Lawn Tennis Association, the game's ruling body in England. The first championship was held on 9 July 1877 at the club's original ground in Worple Road, Wimbledon, in south-west London. In 1922 the club moved to its present ground in Church Road. In 1884 women's singles and men's doubles matches were introduced and 1968 saw the first open championship after the amateur/professional player distinction was abolished.
