The 135th Wimbledon Championships is underway, with the All England Club celebrating its centenary of hosting this iconic Grand Slam.
Across Great Britain there are about 24,000 tennis courts; around 2.8 million (10%) of households live within 400m of a public tennis court.
Nearly 4 million people, close to 6% of the population, participate in tennis, placing Great Britain in the top 10 of tennis nations across the globe.
The winners of the men's and women's singles will each receive £2 million for their efforts at this year's Wimbledon. 99.5% of all properties sold across England and Wales over the past year could have been purchased with this budget.
