Late Start For Wimbledon Tennis 2017

Posted by Lady Wimbledon | 14 July 2016 | News, Rumour Has It, What's On

For the first time the Wimbledon Championships are making some big changes, as they are planning to start the tournament a whole week later this year.

The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) in association with The All England Lawn Tennis Club announced official changes to their schedule, therefore The Championships will take place from 3 – 16 July in 2017.

Michael Downey, LTA CEO said: “This is all about delivering a bigger and better set of grass court tournaments for the players and our fans. It represents another major step in the evolution of the British grass court circuit. I would like to thank all our partners at the AELTC, Aegon, the ATP and WTA, venues and city councils because this has truly been a collaborative effort to take our tournaments to another level of excellence.

“Ultimately, we want to jump-start the important summer season of participation by trying to “own the month of June” with an extensive and high quality series of Major Tennis Events to help inspire more people to pick up a racket and play tennis.  At the same time, this new look calendar will help optimise the players’ preparation for competing in the world’s premier tennis tournament, The Championships, Wimbledon.”
