Wimbledon Weather

submit to reddit

Rain is something that tennis fans are used to at the Wimbledon tennis tournament. While some years have been mercifully rain free, others have seen varying amounts of rain that can easily mean play is suspended for various lengths of time. Occasionally there has been no play at all in a single day.

The All England Lawn Tennis Club has a policy in place in the event of wet weather. Centre Court is the only court that can be covered where play can still take place; the roof can be closed in less than ten minutes. However it may still prove necessary to acclimatise the surroundings inside Centre Court before play can resume.

In cases where rain has meant that only an hour or two of play has taken place, ticket holders can apply for a full or partial refund. Full details of this can be obtained from the venue on the day.

In the event that you bet on a match that is suspended for a day and then completes on the following day, your bet should still be perfectly valid. You are wagering money on the match, not on when it is played. If you have any questions about the effects of likely bad weather ask before you place your bet.

Of course the other thing you could do is to bet money on having a fully dry Wimbledon for once. The odds might be long enough to make it worth a try!
