Held at the All England Club in the famed area of south London, the championship is perhaps the biggest tennis event of the year, drawing even the casual spectator of the sport.
And the gleaming gold Wimbledon trophy is perhaps the most coveted prize a professional tennis player can win.
Wimbledon began way back in 1877 – and in 2022 many will be excited to see returning champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia defend his title following recent controversy.
Fans of Japan’s Naomi Osaka and Britain’s number one Emma Raducanu will also be watching with keen interest, especially after the player sustained an acute strain injury last week.
So when is Wimbledon this year? And where can you follow what’s happening?
