The world’s best tennis players are set to slug it out in London during the first two weeks of July.

Officially known as simply ‘The Championships’, Wimbledon is the world’s oldest tennis tournament, dating back to 1877.

Played on grass at London’s All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, in London, this year’s tournament is the 137th time it has taken place (and the 130th time the ladies’ singles has been played).

Last year saw Carlos Alcaraz take the men’s singles title, and Markéta Vondroušová triumph in the women’s singles championship.

They’ll be back to defend their titles, along with Novak Djokovic, who will be looking to add a record 25th grand slam trophy to his groaning mantelpiece.

Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s tournament.

Will Andy Murray be playing at Wimbledon 2024?

It’s recently been confirmed that Andy Murray will pull-out of this year’s Wimbledon Men’s Singles after undergoing surgery on a spinal cyst. It followed the Scot being recently forced to retire from his second round game at the Queen’s tournament.

We will be seeing the two-time champion in action at SW19 though, as he will be playing doubles with his brother Jamie Murray.

And it has now been announced that Murray will also play in the mixed doubles tournament alongside British US Open champion Emma Raducanu.

So, no singles, but plenty of chances to see Andy during his last Wimbledon before retirement.

This year will see the women’s and men’s singles winner receive a huge cheque for a cool £2.7 million.

The winners of the men’s doubles and women’s doubles will get £650,000 to share between them.

Meanwhile the mixed doubles champions will get £130,000 to split.

In the singles, the beaten finalist gets £1,400,000, the semi-finalists £715,000, quarter-finalists £375,000, round of 16 losers £226,000, round of 32 losers £143,000, round of 64 losers £93,000, and round of 128 losers £60,000
