Players allowed to wear colored undershorts at Wimbledon

After discussions with the WTA, tournament medical teams and clothing brands, the Wimbledon tournament will relax its dress rules. Historically, players had to wear white clothes during the Grand Slam on grass. But now, women will be able to wear dark undershorts on the London lawn.

The goal is to relieve them of any form of anxiety during their period. ” We are committed to supporting players and listening to their feedback on how they can perform at their best. All England Club chief executive Sally Bolton said in a statement.

In force from 2023

This means that from next year, women and girls participating in the Championships will have the option of wearing colored undershorts if they wish. “, continued Sally Bolton.

Organizers said requirements for other clothing, accessories and equipment remain unchanged.
