What is the largest tennis stadium in the world?
In 1882, croquet was dropped from the name, as tennis had become the main activity of the club. But in 1899 it was restored to the club’s name for sentimental reasons, and the club’s name became The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.
With the end of the war and, a few years later, the death of King George VI, Queen Elizabeth became the royal face of Wimbledon. She was appointed as patron in 1952, although she didn’t seem to take to the role much—her 2010 visit to watch Murray was her first in 33 years.
