Tour the world’s most famous tennis club

Of the major tournaments taking place every year, Wimbledon is the oldest. Unlike other competitions, Wimbledon is played on grass and is arguably the most prestigious tournament – the ultimate dream of every professional tennis player. The championships take place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club every June and July. Take the Wimbledon tour to explore these renowned grounds and visit the popular Wimbledon Museum.

The All England Club, also known as the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, is a members-only club in Wimbledon. Established by six gentlemen in 1868, it was initially a croquet club until the introduction of tennis in 1875. Spencer Gore emerged as the first Wimbledon champion in 1877. The club is well-known for being the only venue in the world where players must wear all-white. The All England Club boasts eighteen tournament grass courts.

Discover the history of The Championships at Wimbledon

The tour explores the entire history of The Wimbledon Championships. Lawn tennis originated in Birmingham, England in the late 19th Century. The first Wimbledon Championship took place in 1877, followed by the women’s championship in 1884. In the same year, the National men’s doubles event transferred to Wimbledon from Oxford, with the later inclusion of women’s and mixed doubles in 1913.

Go behind the scenes at the home of The Champions with an inspiring 90-minute tour of the grounds and a visit to Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum. Walk through the same doors used by the players, sit in their very seats in the Media Centre, and learn about the traditions and history of the game.

Another attraction is John McEnroe’s Ghost, developed with a combo of filming technology and projection. Finally, browse the museum shop for souvenirs before leaving.

Experience the Wimbledon tour – an unforgettable day out for any tennis fan.
