About Center Court:

Center Court is the main court of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, the club that organizes the tournament, and today is used only for the tournament.

It was inaugurated in 1922 and it was renovated in the 2000s. In addition to increasing the overall capacity to 15,000 seats, the major novelty was the installation of the mobile roof that unfolds in a few minutes despite the weight of 1000 tons and the extension for 5200 square meters.

In 2012, the Center Court was exceptionally used also for the London Olympics. Within the club, there are a total of 19 other camps, including the No. 1 Court, used for the Davis Cup, a museum and several restaurants, shops and pharmacies.

If you just want to visit the stadium you can do it by guided tour: the ticket costs 25 Pounds. But remember that during the tournament the guided tours are suspended. The tour includes a visit to the press room, locker rooms, and other restricted access locations during the championship.
