Wimbledon is the world’s oldest tennis tournament and is seen as the most prestigious. After all, Wills and Kate are typically in attendance. Since 1877, it has been played at London’s All England Club in Wimbledon.
Traditionally, it’s played over 14 days, starting in late June. However, the tennis calendar has undergone recent changes, which has meant that Wimbledon has commenced in July.
Other traditions include a dress code for Royal patronage and players. Famously, strawberries and cream is the food of choice. In fact, in 2007 alone, fans consumed some 34,000kg of strawberries, not to mention 10,000l of cream. Wimbledon is also known for having no sponsored advertising around its courts. It’s also popular among punters who enjoy a flutter at the event. The likes of Mr Green offer both fixed odds and live betting.
