Wimbledon Tennis Championships
The Wimbledon Tennis Championships are the highlight of the year’s tennis calendar, bringing together the world’s leading tennis professionals in a battle for glory on grass. The first championship event at Wimbledon dates back to 1877, but the first Ladies’ Singles championship was only introduced in 1884. Since then the tradition of strawberries and cream and a glass of Pimms on centre court has been enjoyed by thousands of tennis fans from around the world. The Wimbledon Championships are the most famous of the four tournaments known as the Grand Slam. The Grand Slam refers to the actual victory in this event, The Australian Open, The US Open and The French Open.
