This year’s singles champions will each take home a 5.4% share of the £50 million ($65 million) total prize pot on offer at the Wimbledon Championships.

The two runners-up at the All England Club will each get £1.4 million ($1.8 million), up 19.1% from the £1.53 million given to the losing finalists a year ago.

Equal pay at every grand slam in tennis

Men and women have received the same amount of prize money at Wimbledon since 2007, the first year of pay equality across all four grand slam events.

The US Open has offered equal prize money since back in 1973. The Australian Open followed suit in 1984, only to go back to paying men more in 1996. However, the tournament reversed this move five years later. The French Open began giving its champions the same amount in 2006, before introducing equal pay at every stage of the tournament the following year.

While there is equal prize money at every grand slam events, this is not the case in all regular-season elite competitions. Outside of the majors, indeed, there are only three combined events (championships that feature both a men’s and women’s tournament) that offer the same prize purse to both sexes: the Indian Wells Open, the Madrid Open and the Miami Open.

However, the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) revealed in June 2023 that it had set about “creating a pathway toward equal prize money” in all combined top-tier events by 2027. “Equality, including equal compensation, is a fundamental principle of the WTA and it is crucial to attain this level,” said Steve Simon, the body’s chairman and CEO.
