From The All England Club: London, UK, Friday 1 July: The All England Club has confirmed that on account of the poor weather experienced to date in the first week, play will take place on Middle Sunday – 3 July – for the fourth time in Wimbledon’s history (previously 1991, 1997 and 2004).
The move has been made in order to reduce the backlog of matches and to allow The Championships to finish as scheduled. Tickets will only be available for purchase in advance online on a first-come first-served basis with a limit of two per household. None will be available for sale on the day.
The full details for the arrangements for Middle Sunday will be announced at 1.00pm on Saturday 2 July.
This will mark only the fourth time in Wimbledon’s 139-year history, that matches will take place on the middle Sunday.
There are still second round matches yet to be completed on the men’s and women’s side of the draw due to the backlog of matches due to the many rain delays the first five days of the tournament.
