The Wimbledon corporate hospitality dress code, and the Wimbledon dress code as a spectator has relaxed in recent years.
In 2014 Officials at the AELTC made changes, despite reservations held by the clubs debenture holders. Originally the rules stipulated that shorts were prohibited and gentlemen had to formally present themselves in a shirt and tie. Jeans were also a big no no. The overall Wimbledon dress code was described as ‘formal’.
Jeans may now be worn, as long as they are not ripped or torn. Tailored shorts are also allowed, and trainers can be worn as long as they are clean. The overall suggestion is that anyone spectating at the Championships should be dressed in a smart but casual manor.
It is especially important that spectators come to the Championships well prepared for all manor of weathers. Check the weather forecast before you intend to visit Wimbledon. We recommend that you consider the forecast when you are planning your visit. As is typical of the British summertime, it could be hot, cold or raining.
