During this year’s Wimbledon, these massive white structures were lined up on the front practice courts at Aorangi Park.
But the retractable roof on No. 1 Court, which will open next year on the 10th anniversary of a similar structure over Centre Court, is well on its way.
Next year, there will therefore be two courts available for play (and TV) during rain delays.
Ironically, of course, since the installation of the first roof, it’s hardly rained during Wimbledon.
