Wimbledon Prize Money 2020

Although the Wimbledon Championships were sadly canceled for 2020, thanks to the AELTC Pandemic Insurance, £10m of prize money was distributed amongst the 620 players who would have taken part in the 2020 Championships.

Players will receive one payment each and the money, which comes as a result of insurance cover for cancellation, will be distributed as follows:

  • £25,000 for the 256 players in the singles main draws
  • £12,500 for the 224 players in singles qualifying
  • £6,250 for the 120 players in main draw doubles
  • £6,000 for the 16 players in the wheelchair events
  • £5,000 for four players in the quad wheelchair events

Immediately following the cancellation of The Championships, we turned our attention to how we could assist those who help make Wimbledon happen. We know these months of uncertainty have been very worrying for these groups, including the players, many of whom have faced financial difficulty during this period and who would have quite rightly anticipated the opportunity to earn prize money at Wimbledon based on their world ranking. We are pleased that our insurance policy has allowed us to recognise the impact of the cancellation on the players and that we are now in a position to offer this payment as a reward for the hard work they have invested in building their ranking to a point where they would have gained direct entry into The Championships 2020. Richard Lewis CBE, AELTC Chief Executive

A nice gesture from Wimbledon that has drawn plaudits from both players and fans, but it's worth noting the insurance policy had this as part of the terms of the payout. So it wasn't done purely out of altruism :D.

However, credit must be given to Wimbledon for having the foresight to purchase pandemic insurance after the SARS outbreak in 2003. The AELTC has paid £25.5m over the 17-year period, recovered around £114m, making it a very sensible investment.
