Wimbledon Announces 2023 Prize Money
The All England Club announced Wednesday that the total prize money fund for The Championships 2023 will be a record £44,700,000.
The prize money on offer for tennis events this year (not including per diems) is an 11.2% increase on 2022 and a 17.1% increase on the pre-pandemic Championships in 2019.
The prize money distribution continues to place importance on supporting players in the early rounds of the event. The qualifying competition prize money fund has received a 14.5% increase on last year, while main draw singles players losing in the first round will receive £55,000, a 10% increase on 2022.
The prize pool for the Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Doubles is a 10.7% increase on last year, while the Wheelchair and Quad Wheelchair Singles and Doubles events all rose by just shy of 20%.
The Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Singles champions and runners-up will receive £2,350,000 and £1,175,000 respectively, with prize money for these two rounds rising to the levels they were in 2019.
Ian Hewitt, Chairman of the All England Club, commented: “We are delighted to offer record prize money to the players competing at The Championships this year, with double digit increases across the majority of events. Our ambition with this distribution is to return the singles champions and runners-up prize money to the levels in 2019 prior to the pandemic whilst, alongside, providing deserved support for players in the early rounds of the event.”
