What is Wimbledon?

Held at the All England Club in south-west London since 1877, Wimbledon is all about history and great tennis.

The championships, the third of the year’s Grand Slam tournaments, are a main feature of the British sporting summer and one of the most eagerly awaited events on the calendar for sports fans everywhere.

Over a fortnight in late June and early July, the world’s top players battle it out on the lightning-fast lawns – Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam event still played on a traditional grass surface.

The volume of wagers taken on Wimbledon betting sites each year is huge as regular tennis bettors and once-a-year enthusiasts add to the excitement by wagering on the action.

Wimbledon: Most Popular Markets

The era of the “big four” in men’s tennis – Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray – may be coming to an end. But it still takes courage to look elsewhere in the Wimbledon betting odds.

Djokovic will still be only 34 when the championships start and will believe he has plenty more titles in him. Federer, eight times the champion, may still be able to muster one last hurrah in his 40th year.

It is hard to see Murray, plagued by injury in recent years, as a contender, but Nadal, twice a Wimbledon champion, still has a serious chance.

Away from the established elite, Stefanos Tsitsipas may improve on his best result so far, a trip to the fourth round in 2018. Similarly, Daniil Medvedev will believe he can go much further than the third round for the first time.

Tennis Bets Explained

Use our playbook to hone your betting skills.


The moneyline, also known as a match result bet, is the simplest bet of all when it comes to tennis betting online. All we have to do is decide which player we think is going to win, then place our wager on them. If they triumph in the match, we collect our winnings.

In-Play Betting on Wimbledon

Wimbledon betting online doesn’t stop just because the match – or the tournament – has started. In-play betting means that we can place a bet while the action unfolds.

Tennis has become an extremely popular sport with fans of in-play betting. The fluctuations in matches, and the frequent breaks in play, mean there are numerous opportunities to wager while a match is being contested.

For instance, Roger Federer may find himself a set down early in a match. But we can still place a bet on him to win that contest – and even the tournament overall.

Wimbledon Betting Tips

Wimbledon, like any Grand Slam tournament, provides a generous range of markets for you to enjoy.

We may be strongly convinced that a particular player will win the championship this year and back them for the tournament and in every match they play. However, it’s always worthwhile looking for Wimbledon betting opportunities that are part of a special offer from a sportsbook.

It’s always advisable to find a betting operator that offers a wide selection of markets, and whose platform is highly efficient and user-friendly.

Prestigious events like Wimbledon always see sportsbooks offering bonuses for new customers, such as free bets when you place your first wager.

Keep an eye out too for Wimbledon betting sites that have special offers such as a doubling of our winnings if our selection wins a match despite losing the first set.

Parlay Free Bet

Parlay bets (also known as accumulators), where you can combine several bets for a single stake, are very popular with people who enjoy Wimbledon betting online. Some sportsbooks offer a free bet if we create a parlay bet that includes at least three selections.

Recoup some of your in-play losses

In-play Wimbledon betting is fast and exciting, and a great way of staying close to the elite tennis action. Some sportsbooks will pay back a small percentage of any losses you incur on in-play bets during the tournament. It’s always a good idea to check the terms and conditions.

Where will Wimbledon 2022 be Held?

Stadium Tennis Wimbledon


All England Lawn Tennis Club, London, England


The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, to give it its full title, has been the venue for the Wimbledon championships since 1877.

Tradition is important at Wimbledon. It is the only Grand Slam where all the players must wear white, and the only one still played on a grass surface. It’s organizers even use “The List” – a 1,500 item checklist – to meticulously prepare for a tournament that will see about 450,000 fans flock to south-west London each year to watch the action.

However, the club has moved with the times in recent years. Centre Court and No.1 Court now have retractable roofs. These allow play to continue when the traditional British summer rain puts in an appearance.
