Whisper it quietly, but summer is here and Wimbledon is approaching rapidly.


No British summertime could be complete without lashings of strawberries, cream and tennis, in your desired order of preference, and the competition looks fierce in 2023.

New World No.1 Carlos Alcaraz has produced outrageous form this season so far and enters the tournament as a hot contender alongside a face we know all too well.

Reigning champion Novak Djokovic is back to defend his title. He was pushed all the way by a ferocious Nick Kyrgios in 2022.

In the women's tournament, World No.1 Iga Swiatek has seen her grip over the WTA Rankings loosen, with reigning Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina building up a head of steam going into the summer.

Of course, there's still plenty of tennis to savour as the French Open gets under way, but it won't be long before SW19 opens its gates to the world.

RadioTimes.com brings you all the dates for Wimbledon 2023 as well as the window of opportunity for the ticket ballot.

When is Wimbledon 2023?

Wimbledon 2023 will begin on Monday 3rd July 2023 and run until the men's singles final on Sunday 16th July 2023.

As ever, the classic two-week format will return, but the tournament will start one week later than usual due to a schedule change from the All England Club.

The middle Sunday will feature a full day of play once again after being introduced in 2022.
