The All England Lawn Tennis Championships remain one of the highlights of the tennis world, and as the only Grand Slam event still played on grass, they retain both the speed of action and the sense of history that make them the favourite of many of the top players.
Templeton offer tables within restaurants located in centre and number one courts, and as all tickets provided are genuine Debentures (guaranteed best seats), or are officially allocated by the AELTC, you can be sure of a day of the highest quality at this world famous event.
The All England Lawn Tennis Championships
The present-day All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (originally The All England Croquet Club) is a private club that was founded in 1868, with its first ground off Worple Road in Wimbledon.
The club was renamed The All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club in 1877 after tennis had been added to its activities the previous year; the game of tennis had been devised by Major Walter Clopton Wingfield as “Sphairistike” a couple of years previously. The club held the first Lawn Tennis Championship in 1877 to mark this change, and a new code of rules was drawn up for the tournament to replace the one administered by the Marylebone Cricket Club. Except for a few details, the rules are pretty much the same to this day.
The first Championship was for Gentlemen’s Singles only, and from twenty-two entrants Spencer Gore emerged as the champion – about two hundred spectators watched the final, at a cost of one shilling each, a tad different from today.
Tennis gradually became the only sport played at the club, and “Croquet” was dropped from the title in 1882. However, it was restored in 1889 for sentimental reasons, and the club became, and still is, The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. Just to confuse people, in 2011 the “All England Lawn Tennis Club” or AELTC was formed as the club’s subsidiary company to oversee the Championships.
In 1884 Ladies’ Singles and Gentlemen’s Doubles were added to the Championship, with Ladies’ Doubles and Mixed Doubles appearing in 1913.
In 1968 Wimbledon and the other Grand Slam tournaments went Open, allowing professional players to compete alongside the amateurs for the first time – the Players had joined the Gentlemen, and after a few squabbles between different associations representing players, tennis became the unified sport that it is today.
The present club colours of dark green and purple date from 1909, when the early colours of blue, yellow, red and green were thought to be too similar to those of the Royal Marines.
