This year marks the 90th anniversary of Wimbledon coverage on the BBC, a huge broadcasting feat that has become a staple of the summer months. The Championships, Wimbledon, commonly known simply as Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. It has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London, since 1877 and is played on outdoor grass courts. The tournament traditionally took place over two weeks in late June and early July, starting on the third Monday in June and culminating with the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Singles Finals, scheduled for the Saturday and Sunday at the end of the second week. However recent changes to the tennis calendar have seen the event move a week later to start on the first Monday in July. Components of the arrangement are the purple and green colours of Wimbledon and the white for the kit. Also included are strawberries and cream.
