Proposals for the remodelling and installation of a new fixed and retractable roof to the iconic No.1 Court at the All England Lawn Tennis Club at Wimbledon.
The plans for a new, fixed and retractable roof above No.1 Court will allow for uninterrupted play regardless of weather conditions, improving the experience for players and visitors. In addition to this, the remodelling of the stadium will improve corporate hospitality facilities, include the insertion of a new larger spectators screen (fronting Aorangi Terrace) and allow for two additional tiers of seating to be added, creating a further 900 seats.
Court 19 will also be removed to make way for a new, landscaped, two-level public plaza with improved catering facilities and concessions. The AELTC intends to have the new roof operational for the 2019 Championships.
