The 1884 Wimbledon Championships took place on the outdoor grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom. The tournament ran from 5 July until 19 July. It was the 8th staging of the Wimbledon Championships, and the first Grand Slam tennis event of 1884. The men's doubles (previously hosted by the Oxford University Club) and women's singles (originally planned by the London Athletic Club) were added to the Wimbledon championships, but these were not started until after the men's singles had been completed.[5] The first prize for the women was valued at twenty guineas, and the second prize was valued at ten guineas[5] There were thirteen female competitors.[5] The South Western Railway ran special trains to the ground from Waterloo.[5]
