In pictures: Wimbledon’s Centre Court and Court One back to full capacity

News

After more than a week at reduced capacity due to coronavirus restrictions, Wimbledon’s show courts returned to full capacity on Tuesday.

Having operated with just 50 per cent of the seats occupied throughout the first week of the tournament, all of Centre Court’s almost 15,000 berths and the 12,345 available on Court One were up for grabs as part of the Government’s Events Research Programme.
