The All England Club announced the total prize money fund for The Championships 2024. The players will receive £50 million (approximately €59.16 million), marking an 11.9 per cent increase compared to the previous year. The winners of the singles competitions alone can look forward to £2.7 million (approximately €3.19 million).

The organizing All England Lawn Tennis Club is also proud of the prize money for the wheelchair competitions, which, for the first time, totals £1 million (approximately €1.18 million).

Deborah Jevans, Chair of the All England Club, commented: “With this year’s Championships only days away, I am delighted to announce a record prize money fund of £50 million, with increases for players in every round and across every event. I am particularly pleased that we have been able to increase prize money for the wheelchair and quad wheelchair competitions to £1 million for the first time.”

The 137th edition of the Wimbledon Championships will take place from July 1 to 14. The defending champions are Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz and Marketa Vondrousova from the Czech Republic. Over the past ten years, the prize money at Wimbledon has doubled. For comparison, at this year’s French Open and Australian Open, the tennis stars were able to earn approximately €53 million each. Last year, the US Open distributed €59.6 million.
