Finance

Funds generated by The Championships, less tax, are used by the LTA to develop tennis in Great Britain.

In December 2008, the Club and the LTA agreed that the LTA to benefit from receiving 90 per cent of any distributable financial surplus resulting from The Championships until at least 2053.

AELTC to acquire the LTA's 50 per cent share of ownership in All England Lawn Tennis Ground plc (the company which owns the Wimbledon tennis site and facilities). Capital will therefore become freed up in 2013 for the LTA to invest in British tennis and its facilities at all levels.

For AELTC, who originally gave this 50 per cent shareholding to the LTA in 1934, the transaction returns to the Club full ownership and control of the site, enabling it to continue its central objective to maintain The Championships as the premier tennis event in the world, with facilities to match.
