Game, set and match to this terrific venue
The impressive Court 1 comprises part of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, fondly known as Wimbledon due to its location in Church Road, Wimbledon, SW19. The court is utilised by the club all year round but is most famous for hosting play-offs during the annual international championship tennis tournament. The venue now has a seated capacity of over 12,000, an increase of 6,000 since its original design. Court 1 was established back in 1924 and fully replaced in 1997 to allow for greater attendance, and it remains a firm favourite with audiences and players alike. The first professional match to be played on the new court took place between America’s Daniel Nestor and the winning Brit, Tim Henman. Historically the court was home to the Wightman Cup (now held elsewhere) and the Davis Cup, and of course is used for the Wimbledon championship itself. International star players have enjoyed the court, which has seen energetic performances from top athletes including Andy Murray, the Williams sisters, Andre Agassi, Roger Federer, Ashleigh Barty and Rafael Nadal.

Court 1 is blessed with a retractable roof which serves the inclement UK weather well. "Rain stops play" was a common phrase heard frequently in the earlier days of tennis championships held at the venue, but those days ended in 2019. A celebratory opening of the new retractable roof took place and was attended by a host of famous former players. The first time the roof was utilised was during a competitive match between Andy Murray and Pierre-Hugues Herbert in July 2019. Unlike the famous Wimbledon Tennis Club - Centre Court, Court 1 is not used for the Grand Slam. Centre Court is also a popular choice for tennis fans as the heart-stopping Wimbledon finals are held there and broadcast to record numbers of viewers worldwide. Centre Court also holds a premier seating box, which is used by members of the British Royal Family and other VIP visitors and is known as the Royal Box.
