Wimbledon History & its Origin

Lawn tennis inventor

It is necessary to mention that lawn tennis was popularized by Major Walter Clopton Wingfield, who is considered an inventor of lawn tennis, in 1873. An Englishman played this game at a garden party in Wales with his close friends and colleagues. At the beginning it was called “Sphairistike” [Gr., = ball playing], inasmuch as this might be interpreted as racquet sport and the inventor decided that this would be a great name for the new game. With the course of time the name was changed to Wimbledon in accordance with the location of the tournament. At that time the game was played on an hourglass-shaped court. The feature of this type of court is represented by the space at the baselines and at the net, as it is narrower near the second and wider at the baselines. Major Walter Clopton Wingfield borrowed the idea of lawn tennis from different games and simply combined them with an aim to create a new fascinating game that will serve as a new entertaining tool in the society. He combined the elements of court tennis, squash racquets, and badminton. As a result, a new game was invented and with the course of time became one of the most popular games in the world. This was an incredible invention in the world of sport and it changed the development of tennis in the future.

Major Walter Clopton Wingfield

Previously tennis was a significant kind of sport and a lot of people played it with a joy and court tennis is a royal type of this game. Tennis was invented during the Middle Ages in France and with the course of time became one of the preferable sporting events of British royalty. Henry VIII enjoyed this kind of sport and popularized it in the society. The transition from court tennis to lawn tennis might be explained by the invention of the ball that enlarged the list of opportunities for the players provided by this game. Lawn tennis became one of the most favorite sporting activities. It became popular in different parts of the British Empire and later all-round the globe.

All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club

All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, a private club, was established in 1868 on four acres of meadowland outside London, Wimbledon. The club was originally founded to promote croquet, another lawn sport, but the growing popularity of tennis led it to incorporate tennis lawns into its facilities. As it was mentioned above, Major Walter Clopton Wingfield in 1873 contrived lawn tennis and this game was popularized in 1875 as one of the activities offered by the Club for its members. They published an announcement in the weekly sporting magazine The Field that read: “The All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club, Wimbledon, propose to hold a lawn tennis meeting open to all amateurs, on Monday, July 9, and following days. Entrance fee, one pound, one shilling.”

On July 9, 1877, the All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club begins its first lawn tennis tournament at Wimbledon and the name of the Club was changed. Twenty-one amateurs showed up to compete in the Gentlemen’s Singles tournament, the only event at the first Wimbledon. The winner was to take home a 25-guinea trophy.
This year is characterized by numerous changes for British summer sport. For instance, a new set of rules was created for this sporting event, and its impact on future development of lawn tennis cannot be eliminated. The All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club provided players and visitors with an opportunity to enjoy a great variety of different sport activities. In 1882 lawn tennis became the top sporting activity and the word “croquet” was removed from the name of the Club. The Club tends to meet the demands of a large audience and in 1899 the decision to add the word “croquet” was made. However, the intent to make the name of the Club more realistic, the one that will show the real state of things, forced its members to change the usual name gradually and these days the Club’s name is “The All England Tennis and Croquet Club”.

Nowadays the All England Tennis and Croquet Club boast two main courts: Centre Court and No. 1 Court. The capacity of Centre Court is over 15, 000 and it is used primarily for the men`s and women`s semifinals, finals, and the most significant matches of the tournament each year. The capacity of the No. 1 court is approximately 11,000 and it was created in 1997, inasmuch as the previous court was removed for technical reasons. The All England Tennis and Croquet Club also contain 17 courts, and all of them are simply numbered in a row.

The first tennis championship was organized by All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, a private club established in 1868. It is necessary to mention that in 1875 this game became one of the most popular activities performed within the boundaries of the Club. Major Walter Clopton Wingfield is also a founder of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and the significance of his contribution to this kind of sport cannot be underestimated. Spencer Gore blew the competition away in 1877. He became the first one who bagged Gentlemen`s Singles title. The first championship reverberated and visitors were required to pay one shilling to visit the final match. In 1884, Ladies’ Singles and Gentlemen’s Doubles competitions were added to the Club activities. As the tournament became a world-known competition, in 1913 Ladies’ Doubles and Mixed Doubles competitions were added. In 2009 World Grass Court Championships enlarged the range of players and added Doubles competitions on wheelchairs.

Gender Equality

In 1884 Women`s Singles event was started with an intent to attract a bigger amount of diverse players, enlarge the audience, and achieve gender equality in British summer sport. Consequently, 13 tennis female players joined the competitions. The first lady who won Wimbledon was Maud Watson. This year is also characterized by another implemented change, as Gentlemen’s Doubles was added by the Club. The financial support for the tournament was provided by Oxford University Lawn Tennis Club.

The implemented changes became a solid basis for the grow of the tournament’s popularity that increased with the course of time. So, the organizers faced a new challenge – an urgent need to transform the tournament and its variables to the championship that meet international standards. Wimbledon became not simply an activity proposed by the Club, but an international, worldwide known tournament that requires the players and spectators feel the importance of this sporting event by the features of the tournament. The elements that impact the mood of the audience, such as facility, were improved. Instead of players’` accommodations, huge stands were created. Since 1880 the amount of individuals that would like to watch the matches was increased.

According to the statistics, British twins Ernest and William Renshaw, the astounding players, gained the biggest crowd in the history of the tournament. The matches performed by them are fulfilled with tension and mastery, and as a result they won 13 titles and public appreciation for their dedication. The period of their success is commonly called ‘Renshaw Rush’. But this was not a pick of the tournament popularity. With the course of time, when Doherty brothers joined the championships, it became the most prestigious and professional tennis tournament in the world. Laurie and Reggie contributed to the development of the tournament popularity and ruled it successfully for the next decades.

Wimbledon History

International Winners

The popularity of the tournament created a situation in which a bigger amount of players from all around the globe began to participate in the championships. As a result, the number of international winners increased. May Sutton was the first winner from overseas, who in 1905 participated in Wimbledon and represented the United States of America. In 1907 she won the Championship again and became a successful international tennis player. Norman Brookes, who represented Australia, in 1907, became the first player from overseas who won the Gentlemen’s Singles title. During that time only two male players from the United Kingdom were able to win the Men`s Singles: Arthur Gore and Fred Perry. At the same time, British females were more successful. Five of them: Kitty McKane Godfree, Dorothy Round, Angela Mortimer, Ann Jones and Virginia Wade – were able to win the Ladies’ Wimbledon Champions.

Redeployment

The development of social realm imposed new challenges and the need to relocate the Championship. The obstacles created by the World War I forced the All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club to redeploy Wimbledon from previous location at Worple Road. Also, it was of paramount importance to find a place with a good capacity as the increased popularity of the tournament greatly impacted the number of visitors that would like to become a part of the most prestigious sporting event in the world. In 1922 the courts were relocated to Church Road. There was an urgent need to build a new stadium and it was managed that it will accommodate approximately 14, 000 visitors. This beneficially impacted the popularization of the tournament, as a bigger amount of people were able to visit this sporting event. All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club with the help of the issue of Debentures covered all the expenses arrived from these changes implementation.

The Impact of World War II

The negative impact of the World War cannot be denied, nonetheless, the Club was able to operate successfully with minimum changes implemented in accordance with the obstacles created by war period. The Club was required to minimize expenses, thus, the staff was partly limited, but this did not negatively impacted the activities performed by the establishment and the amount of opportunities the visitors were provided with were not decreased. Moreover, the Club managed to participate in the World War and meet the demands imposed by the community. The facilities of the Club were also used for civil defense and military operations. The workers helped to conduct fire and ambulance services. The facilities of the Club also served as the place for the location of a decontamination unit. The Center Court was used as a storehouse for five 500lb bombs, as a result, approximately 1200 were destroyed, which resulted in the loss of as many as 1200 seats. It might be summarized that the World War II became the pitfall for the Wimbledon that it faced with dignity.

Wimbledon History after the World War II

The time after the World War II is characterized by an increased popularity of the Wimbledon. Since 1945 the matches were held in a row and some of them were played between the Allied service members. The No. 1 Court was not damaged during the war time, so it was possible to hold all the events. By the end of the summer in 1945 the final matches were taken place. All the damages created by war time were eliminated and the Championship began operated in a usual manner.

The 1950s are characterized by the dominant position held by international players. The tennis players that represented the United States of America held all the leading positions. The most incredible players at that time were Jack Kramer, Ted Schroeder, Tony Trabert, Louise Brough and Maureen Connolly. The period since 1956 till 1970 brought numerous wins to Australian tennis players. Lew Hoad, Neale Fraser, Rod Laver, Roy Emerson and John Newcombe won the Gentlemen’s Singles titles.

The period of the World War II is characterized by increased popularity of different sporting events and established connections between representatives of different countries and cultures. An amount of players from overseas, who began to participate in various championships boosted and this greatly impacted the development of sporting events around the globe.

In 1959, Herman David made an offer to make Wimbledon a championship that welcomes the players from all the courtiers and is open to the individuals from different communities, despite their origin, ethnicity, and religion. However, this change that seems these days absolutely logical and progressive was rejected by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and for the next decades the Wimbledon did not experience any implementation of innovations.

In 1964 the offer was accepted and the Wimbledon Championships became open to all the players that would like to participate in it and are capable enough to proceed with all the requirements.
