Olympics

Night play likely at Wimbledon

Turn on the lights, Wimbledon. The Olympics are coming.

Some tennis matches during the London Games are likely to be played under the lights and under the roof on Centre Court at Wimbledon, the venue for the event.

“There will not be a night session, but the matches may go into nighttime,” said Juan Margets, executive vice president of the International Tennis Federation.

Lights will be a near necessity because of the tight schedule. Early in the tournament, five matches per day are planned on Centre Court beginning at 11:30 a.m., meaning some sessions will probably extend beyond dusk.

If so, the Centre Court lights will be turned on, which requires closing the roof.
The change, made at the discretion of the referee, might take place during a match.

The English weather could also push play past the early evening.

“We have to assume there’s going to be some rain, right?” Margets said.

However, there will be no repeat of the Olympic marathons at the Beijing Games, where rain disrupted the schedule, and one session lasted until 3:35 a.m.

A town ordinance in Wimbledon prohibits play after 11 p.m.
