The Wimbledon tennis tournament is scheduled to run for 13 days with the middle Sunday a rest day. Traditionally, there is no play on the middle Sunday, however, rain has forced play several times in the past. In order to prevent rain disrupting and delaying tennis matches on Wimbledon Centre Court the court was fitted with a retractable roof. It was installed just before the 2009 Championships and is designed to close in about 10 minutes. If the tournament is not completed by the end of the second Sunday, all remaining matches are played on Monday.
The Grounds are scheduled to open at 10:30am each day.
On Courts 2-19 play is provisionally scheduled to start at 12.00 midday for at least the first eight days and at 11.00am for Junior matches on the middle Saturday and during the second week.
On Centre Court play will start at 1.00pm except on the final two days when play will start at 2.00pm.
No.1 Court play will start at 1.00pm on all thirteen days.
Please check the daily order of play. In the first week the early rounds of the Gentlemen's, Ladies' and Mixed Doubles will be played on all courts, with top seeds' matches played on the Show Courts.
Wheelchair events are scheduled to commence on the second Friday.
On the middle Saturday the Juniors' events commence and will be played on the outside courts as well as on some of the Show Courts.
Non-Ticket Holders cannot be admitted after 8.00pm, therefore please allow time for the security checks.
