    Wimbledon 1st - 14th July 2024 - pretournament thread

    Last night, Merton Council gave the go ahead for the All England Club to expand. So, by the time this comes round, they should have started. They're due to finish in 2030, by which time, the qualifying rounds will be played there as well and not in Roehampton.

    Last night, the Wandsworth planning officers reportedly told Wandsworth councillors to reject the ambitious planning application for the All England Club to expand Wimbledon, when they meet next Tuesday. In the end, it could be up to Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, and the Greater London Authority on whether or not they can go ahead.

    Last night, Wandsworth council rejected the All England's expansion plan. It'll now be up to the Greater London Authority or Sadiq Khan could choose to make the decision by himself in about two weeks time.

    I was going to say, yesterday, it was decided that Jules Pipe the Deputy Mayor of London would decide whether or not the All England Club can expand but this website wasn't working until now.

    I read, yesterday, Wimbledon could be moved to a later date in the future. I think it's something to do with the Billie Jean Cup ties.

    I should think a problem with moving it later is that it gets darker earlier.
