The overall prize fund at the All England Club is increasing from £25m to £26.75m (up 7% year on year). The men’s and women’s champion will now earn £1.88m from the competition.
The prize money for the doubles has risen to £341,250 (an increase of 5%), mixed doubles to £100,800 (up 5%) and wheelchair doubles to £15,360 (up 28%).
