Wimbledon Traditions

Much like other major sporting events like the Kentucky Derby and Indy 500, there are many superstitions and traditions associated with Wimbledon. Below are some of the more well known still practiced today.

Grass Courts:  Unlike many other tennis championships, Wimbledon has stuck with the original grass court.

Dress Code: Wimbledon is known for its strict dress code of all white attire for its competitors. This tradition has been around since the tournaments origination in 1877. Paired with the grass court, we can only imagine the grass stains.  

Strawberries and Cream: This unorthodox concession is served at Wimbledon and has become the quintessential snack of the tournament.

Regal Attendance: Expect to see the Royal Family at the event seated in their Royal Box, and maybe see the competitors acknowledge their presence with a curtsy or bow.

Middle Sunday: The Sunday that falls in the middle of Wimbledon’s two-week run is called Middle Sunday, and has been traditionally a rest day. However, for 2022 The Championships will take place every day over the two-week period (including on Middle Sunday). This has only happened three times before, due to inclement weather.
