 The Trophy

Wimbledon-Trophy-Winners-Champion-Mens-History

This is what it’s all about, the gentlemen’s singles Trophy. First presented by the All England Club in 1887 which replaced the Field Cup (1877-1883) and the Challenge Cup (1884-1886) which were both won by William Renshaw

The Cup, which is made of silver gilt, stands 18 inches high and has a diameter of 7.5 inches. The inscription on the Cup reads: “The All England Lawn Tennis Club Single Handed Championship of the World”. Around the bowl are engraved the dates and names of the Champions. In 2009, there being no space left to engrave the names of the Champions, a black plinth with an ornamented silver band was designed to accompany the Cup.

Champions receive a three-quarter size replica of the Cup bearing the names of all past Champions (height 13.5 inches).
