Wimbledon Championships in numbers

The 133rd edition of the Wimbledon Championships is well and truly under way as the eyes of the tennis world shift their focus to the third Grand Slam of the season.

One of the most watched events of the global sporting calendar, Wimbledon attracted a total audience reach of 26m people last year on the BBC, with 4.5m tuning in to watch the men’s final between Novak Djokovic and Kevin Anderson.

World No 1 Djokovic will of course be looking to retain his title, fending off the challenges from Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, with the former aiming to secure his ninth Wimbledon title.

Ashleigh Barty, the current French Open champion and world No 1, is one of the hot favourites to win the women’s title but of course will face stiff competition from Serena Williams and current Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber.

The women’s and men’s finals are scheduled for 13 and 14 July respectively, with equal prize money pot of £2.35m available to the champions.

Here is how to catch all the action from Wimbledon across the next two weeks:


The BBC will broadcast live action throughout the day across BBC One, BBC Two and on the BBC Red Button. A highlights package, Today at Wimbledon, will be aired at 8.30 pm BST on BBC Two every day as well.


The BBC Sport website will also stream live, HD coverage of the matches from across the tournament. Fans can also live stream via BBC iPlayer which is available as an app or online.
