Wimbledon has been built on a legacy of more than 140 years of history and tradition. Our predecessors built the foundations and now it’s our turn to guard that legacy, drive Wimbledon forward and plan for our future.
For two weeks each year, people come from all over the world. Our guests highly anticipate their visit to Wimbledon, and we want to leave them with memories to last a lifetime. It’s our time to create those extraordinary moments and to make Wimbledon an unforgettable experience.
We are proud to work here.
Pride is something that you will hear people talk a lot about at The AELTC. We are part of something very special and whatever our role, we all contribute towards making The Championships a successful event.
Our actions are guided by our values.
Integrity is about doing the right thing and sometimes that isn’t always the easiest thing. It’s about putting our guests at the heart of our decision-making.
We trust and value each other.
It’s not just about what we do, but how we go about it.
We treat people with respect at all times, regardless of the situation.
We always strive to improve.
Whatever our role, we are united by a common ambition – to continually improve on what we do every day in our pursuit of greatness.
