Wimbledon Championships Since 1877
Wimbledon is played on grass.
The tournament ran from June 24 until July 8. It was the 36th Wimbledon Championships and the first Grand Slam tennis event of 1912.
Yes Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and is considered the most prestigious. It has been held at the All England Club in the London suburb of Wimbledon since 1877 and is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, and the only one still played on the game's original surface, grass.
I believe it is Arthur Gore, who won Wimbledon in 1909 at the age of 41 years and 182 days.
Tickets for the Wimbledon tennis grand slam can be purchased at various online ticket selling outlets. To guarantee you are getting legitmate tickets buy from the official Wimbledon website.
Wimbledon is a very prestigious event, said even by the greats as "the best event." I think it has to do with the players' feel of the atmosphere and event. Also, there is much tradition and rich history behind Wimbledon (oldest event). It is also the only grand slam event played on grass. For example, such traditions involve players wearing all white.
In tennis, the four grand slams are the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon, and the U.S. Open.
