Allies and Morrison to develop All England Lawn Tennis Club expansion masterplan

This important planning and consultation process will set out our aspirations for the site in order to both support our local community and protect Wimbledon’s reputation as the finest stage in world tennis.
– Philip Brook

Allies and Morrison have been appointed to develop the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) expansion masterplan following its acquisition of the adjacent golf club last year.

The AELTC, which hosts The Championships, Wimbledon tennis tournament, plans to develop the 120ac (49ha) site so that it can host the tournament's qualifying competition within its grounds.

In addition, it hopes to improve the arrival experience and other elements of the visiting experience for spectators at Wimbledon, as well as to provide community use of the land in the future.

Allies and Morrison said they intend to explore ways to consolidate the fully expanded site while "respecting the historic character and significance of the land."

Philip Brook CBE, chairman of the AELTC, said: "We are pleased to be working with Allies and Morrison as we undertake this important planning and consultation process which will set out our aspirations for the site in order to both support our local community and protect Wimbledon’s reputation as the finest stage in world tennis."

LUC will deliver landscape architecture for the project, Rolfe Judd planning consultancy work and Buro Happold infrastructure, engineering and sustainability services.

Earlier this year, Willmott Dixon was appointed to construct a new £70m (US$90m, €81m) members’ centre adjacent close to the AELTC site as another part of the club's ongoing expansion.
