What to wear to Wimbledon? We take a look at the Championships All White Dress Code for players and take a step inside SW19.
Traditonal Whites at Wimbledon – What to Wear
Imagine you have been offered that childhood dream opportunity to take to the infamous green lawn courts at Church Road SW19? Such a dream came true for Sophia Krutikova. Here she shares with us some moments from that special occasion. Let’s see what she wore that day. Well, she chose our signature Wimbledon White Tennis Dress, an all white affair trimmed with the traditional violet and green of Wimbledon. Don’t forget the matching cotton white shorts with a ball pocket for left or right handed players. Zoe Alexander has you covered!
When are the Wimbledon Championships?
We can’t wait to see our favourites at Wimbledon this year. The nostalgic Grand Slam of all Slams opens with its first serve on Monday 3 July and runs to Sunday 16 July.
Who will be there? Sadly the world’s all time Men’s legendary favourite, the charismatic Mr Cool, Roger Federer, will no longer be cherishing Centre Court eyes. However, we have almost certainly the epic battles of Nadal and Djokovic to look forward to in the Men’s Singles.
For the Ladies, Iga must be a certainty, but who else will be up there? The Ladies is a more open field with an ever changing battle for top positions between Ons Jabeur/TUN, Aryna Sabalenka/RUS, Jessica Peluga/USA and Caroline Garcia/FRA. However, we are sure to see Emma Raducanu/GBR and Maria Sakari/GRE also chasing the Championship Trophy.
The Ten Point All White Attire Wimbledon Dress Code
The following refers to all clothing, including tracksuits and sweaters, worn on The Championship courts both for practice and for matches.
1) Competitors must be dressed in suitable tennis attire that is almost entirely white* and this applies from the point at which the player enters the court surround.
2) White does not include off white or cream.
3) There should be no solid mass or panel of colouring*. A single trim of colour around the neckline and around the cuff of the sleeves is acceptable but must be no wider than one centimetre (10mm).
4) Colour contained within patterns will be measured as if it is a solid mass of colour and should be within the one centimetre (10mm) guide. Logos formed by variations of material or patterns are not acceptable.
5) The back of a shirt, dress, tracksuit top or sweater must be completely white.
6) Shorts, skirts and tracksuit bottoms must be completely white except for a single trim of colour down the outside seam no wider than one centimetre (10mm).
7) Caps (including the underbill), headbands, bandanas, wristbands and socks must be completely white except for a single trim of colour no wider than one centimetre (10mm).
8) Shoes must be almost entirely white. Soles and laces must be completely white. Large manufacturers’ logos are not encouraged. The grass court shoes must adhere to the Grand Slam rules. In particular shoes with pimples around the outside of the toes shall not be permitted. The foxing around the toes must be smooth.
9) Any undergarments that either are or can be visible during play (including due to perspiration) must also be completely white except for a single trim of colour no wider than one centimetre (10mm), except female players who are allowed to wear solid, mid/dark-coloured undershorts provided they are no longer than their shorts or skirt.
10) Medical supports and equipment should be white if possible but may be coloured if absolutely necessary. A more relaxed dress code operates at the Aorangi Park practice courts.
*Exception provided for female players who are allowed to wear solid, mid/dark-coloured undershorts provided they are no longer than their shorts or skirt.
