27 June - 10 July - Check the London weather forecast before heading to Wimbledon, the UK home of tennis.

 

Wimbledon has 19 grass courts where spectators will watch the men's and women's singles, as well as the doubles competitions, youth competitions and wheelchair matches. 

Fans who were not lucky enough to get Wimbledon tickets for centre court or court one will be queuing for a chance to see some of the action on the other courts. They'll also be watching the games on Murray Mound where big screens show the action from the centre court - possibly with a glass of Pimms and some strawberries and cream.

Johnny Perkins, Head of Communications, explains how the weather affects their planning for the Wimbledon championships and the ideal weather they hope for.

 

Wimbledon weather

In 2009 Wimbledon introduced a retractable roof on centre court to allow play to continue in adverse weather conditions and to keep the championship on schedule.

In previous years the event has been so badly affected by the weather the tournament has gone into a third week. The referee will make the decision as to when to cover the courts. The sooner they are covered the quicker the court will dry out and play can resume at Wimbledon.

For further information about getting to the championships visit the  Wimbledon official website.

You can check the weather forecast for other events through the Events Calendar.
