The 135th edition of Wimbledon is set to occur on the 27th of June 2022. The tournament will be celebrating 100 years of Centre Court in its current location at Church Road in Wimbledon.

Celebrating this centenary and looking ahead to the next will be the focus of The Championships 2022, with a special ceremony taking place on Sunday 3 July, the Middle Sunday. To mark the occasion, the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum has installed a new exhibition dedicated to Centre Court – 100 Years of Change – which is now available for visitors to the Grounds to enjoy. The milestone will be the central theme of the annual Wimbledon campaign, launching in the spring, and a commemorative centenary towel will be on sale through the Wimbledon Shop.

2022 also marks the first year that The Championships is planned to take place over 14 days, with the introduction of play on the Middle Sunday to the permanent schedule for the first time.  

Introducing an extra day to our schedule, on a Sunday, is to enhance accessibility, in order to reach broader and more diverse audiences.

It also provides greater resilience to the tournament programme. By adding the Middle Sunday, they can spread the fourth round matches over two days in line with the other Grand Slams. Some additional changes have been made to enhance the second week for the competitors, guests, partners and fans around the world.

The new schedule is shown below.
