Wimbledon Championships moved back a week from 2015


Wimbledon will start a week later from 2015 to allow players a three-week rest period following the French Open.

Currently, the All England Club opens its Championships two weeks after the play finishes at Roland Garros.

But as of 2015 – when Wimbledon will run from 29 June to 12 July – competitors will have 22 days to make the transition from clay to grass.

“There is widespread support within the game for extending the gap,” said All England Club chairman Philip Brook.

Schedule for 2015

  • French Open: 25 May – 7 June
  • Wimbledon: 29 June – 12 July
