All England Tennis Club reveals details of biggest ever Wimbledon expansion


The All England Lawn Tennis Club has released its plans for the Wimbledon Park Project ahead of its biggest ever expansion, with an estimated cost of £100 million.

Having acquired the Wimbledon Park golf course in late 2018, the All England Club is proposing to build a total of 39 new grass courts, which includes an 8,000-seat ‘Parkland’ stadium with a retractable roof.

The other 38 grass courts will facilitate the qualifying rounds at Wimbledon, matching each of the other Grand Slams which enables qualifying players to feel a bigger part of the tournament.

The documents reveal that the cost of the work will be ‘more than £100 million’, with the planning application costing over £73,000.

The project will not be completed until 2030, with the new Parkland show court the last part of the application to be completed.

In terms of the schedule of the work, construction will take place in 2022 on the Wimbledon Park golf course before a remodelling of the Wimbledon grounds in 2024.

In 2026, the qualifying courts and venue will be complete and the new All England Club will then be open to the public.

Two years later, qualifying will be held on site before the completion of the Parkland stadium in 2030.
