Court 3 : a new Show Court at Wimbledon
The new No.3 Court will be officially opened by the Duke of Kent, President of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, ahead of the first scheduled match on Monday 20 June, the first day of The Championships. The Duke will perform the coin toss for the opening match, and unveil a commemorative plaque.
The 2,000-seater construction has been built on the site of the old Court 2, ‘the graveyard of Champions’, and is nestled to the south of the Players’ balconies.
The old Court 2 had witnessed some of the biggest Wimbledon upsets, like Andre Agassi loss to Doug Flach in 1996, or Pete Sampras defeat to George Bastl in 2002.
