Rolex’s enduring alliance with The Championships, Wimbledon, has been nurtured over several decades and has always focused on the future and the development of tennis. The Swiss watch brand has been Official Timekeeper of the pre-eminent tournament since 1978.
Wimbledon is the world’s oldest tennis championship, whose rich heritage stretches back to 1877, when 22 tennis players competed in front of 200 spectators at the All England Club’s courts for the first Gentlemen’s Singles Championship. Today, Wimbledon, is widely acknowledged as the most popular Grand Slam® touGrand Slarnament, watched by millions worldwide.
Rolex – Official Timekeeper
Rolex has been part of this history for almost 40 years as the tournament’s Official Timekeeper. Its clocks keep the official time inside this classic arena, on court and throughout the grounds. The media centre – an international hub – shows Rolex time in Wimbledon, and in Johannesburg, Melbourne, New York, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, and Tokyo, just a few of the major cities where the tournament is broadcast live.
Wimbledon, is, like Rolex, known for combining its tradition with innovation, an approach that informs the All England Club’s new Master Plan. The key elements include a three-year building programme under way at the complex, the focus of which is the development of Court No. 1 to create a second retractable roof, as well as continued investment in the integrity of the sport and an enhanced grass-court season.
Rolex i Tennis
Wimbledon has constantly evolved, yet retained its unique image, achieving a perfect balance between modern-day technology and heritage.
Rolex is a leading supporter of tennis, with a commitment extending across the men’s and women’s game to high-quality events and exciting talent. Rolex and the All England Club work together to perpetuate one of sport’s greatest traditions. Each year, new champions emerge and sporting history is made as the game soars to new heights of excellence.
“Rolex has always been like a family. It’s really motivating for me when I step on the court, knowing that Rolex is behind me every step of the way.” Roger Federer
