Play your Way to Wimbledon (formerly Road to Wimbledon)

The Play Your Way To Wimbledon, powered by Vodafone, junior tournament (previously called Road to Wimbledon) gives most players under the age of 18, an opportunity to follow in their heroes footsteps and compete for the title at Wimbledon.

The LTA is proud to be working with Vodafone and the AELTC to relaunch and expand the largest individual mass participation tennis competition in the UK, Play Your Way to Wimbledon, powered by Vodafone. From 2023, the LTA and the AELTC are planning for the competition to expand further with the introduction of additional age groups and disability categories, which Vodafone is proud to support.

Players start by competing locally at an event taking place at a local club, park or school with the winners progressing through to the County and/or Regional Finals, and then onto the National Finals at Wimbledon

New for 2023, in addition to the existing junior pathways there will be two additional Play your Way to Wimbledon pathways:

Play your Way to Wimbledon Adult Doubles (ages 19+)

Play your Way to Wimbledon Disability (Wheelchair, Visually impaired & Learning Disability)
