Wimbledon Tennis Championships: your ultimate guide

Warm up for Wimbledon 2017 and get ready for two weeks of strawberries, Pimm's and grunting

Whether you're a serious tennis fan or just in it for the Pimm's, the Wimbledon Tennis Championships are a must in the London events calendar. The next totally terrific tennis tournament, darling, takes place from July 3 - July 16 2017 and, from how to get into Wimbledon 2017 to the outdoor sports screens showing the latest matches, here's all the information you need.

Where do the Wimbledon Championships take place? 

Er, Wimbledon. Ok, to be more specific, the court action takes place at the All England Lawn Tennis Club, but plenty of big screens pop up when the tennis season is in full swing. Check out our favourite Wimbledon screenings below to find one near you.

When does Wimbledon 2017 kick-off?

This year's tennis-athon runs from Monday July 3 - Sunday July 16 2017.

What's all the fuss about Wimbledon?

Taking place at the All England Club in South West London since 1877, Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. It now attracts over 500,000 spectators for two weeks every year and has some seriously old-school rules about what the players can and can't do. In other words, it's seriously impressive sporting history with loads of English eccentricity thrown in.

It doesn't get much more quintessentially English than this. No matter what day of the tournament you go on there's always a really buzzy atmosphere and a colourful friendly throng looking to have fun. If the sun shines it takes the day to another level. Sitting out on Henman Hill and watching on the big screen - that's worth doing for a bit even if you have centre court tickets just to soak up a different kind of atmosphere.  Once you've had a pint of Pims you'll be well on the way to having a very memorable day in SW17. Probably better have some strawbs while you're there too.
