The tournament takes place over two weeks in late June and early July, culminating with the Ladies and Gentlemens Singles Final, scheduled respectively for the second Saturday and Sunday. Each year, five major events are contested, as well as four junior events and three invitational events. The hard court (Plexicushion) Australian Open and clay court French Open precede Wimbledon in the calendar year. The hard court (DecoTurf) US Open follows. For men, the grass court Queens Club Championships, also in London, as well as the Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany, serve as warm-up events. For women, the AEGON Classic in Birmingham and 2 joint events, the UNICEF Open in s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands and the Eastbourne International serve as warm-up events to Wimbledon.

The tournament is also notable for the absence of sponsor advertising around the courts...
