Wimbledon Hospitality

Wimbledon Hospitality: A Succinct History

The Wimbledon tennis tournament is one of the oldest sporting events in the world. This tournament is formally called: The Championships, Wimbledon. This tournament that was first played in the year 1887 gets its name from the place where it was first played, The All England Club which is located in the suburbs of London in a place called Wimbledon. It has been played in the same place ever since. Wimbledon is one of the four major Grand Slam tennis tournaments with the other 3 being the U.S Open, Australian Open and French Open tennis tournaments. While the latter three are played on hard or clay courts, the Wimbledon Championship is the only Grand Slam event that is still being played on a traditional grass court.
