Approximately 2,500 broadcasters work in the Broadcast Centre.
Nine courts have live television coverage (seven after week one), more than any other Grand Slam.
Fees paid by international broadcasters are vital since they help create the annual surplus that is then returned into British tennis at all levels by the Lawn Tennis Association.
As important to the All England Club is to carry Wimbledon to as large an audience as possible, which is why, in most parts of the world, the Club aims to place at least part of The Championships on national, free-to-air television.
Broadcasters are approached on a country-by-country basis with agreements designed to satisfy both cable and satellite, and terrestrial broadcasters.
2018 marks the first year of Wimbledon Broadcast Services, the AELTC’s new host broadcast operation. WBS will provide multicamera coverage of all 18 Championships courts for the first time, a net-cam on both Centre Court and No.1 Court, and various other enhancements.
