The 1902 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 23 June until 2 July. It was the 26th staging of the Wimbledon Championships, and the first Grand Slam tennis event of 1902.[5] The Women's final (challenge round) is the only match in the history of Wimbledon that was played twice over.
