Wimbledon Prize Money 2022

The 2022 Wimbledon Championships will be held at full capacity for the first time in three years and alongside that is a record amount of prize money.

This year players will compete for a share of £40 million (£40,350,000) in prize money, an increase of 15.23% compared to the £35 million total prize money in 2021. It is also 6.23% more than 2019, the year the championships last had full capacity crowds.

As for specific player remuneration, the 2022 Wimbledon champion will take home a cheque for £2,000,000, up 17.65% compared to what Novak Djokovic received twelve months ago.

The runner up will bag themselves just over half that amount with £1,050,000, a similar increase of 16.67% vs 2021.

The prize money distribution for 2022 continues the trend of heavily remunerating the earlier rounds to give lower-ranked players a financial boost.

For example, first-round losers receive £50,000 this year, a 4.17% rise compared to twelve months ago. Losers in qualifying see an even more considerable pay rise, with Q1 losers landing 25.49% more than twelve months ago with £11,000.

From the first round of the Qualifying Competition to the Champions being crowned, this year’s prize money distribution aims to reflect just how important the players are to The Championships as we look to continue to deliver one of the world’s leading sporting events, and with a particularly special tournament ahead of us as we celebrate 100 years of Centre Court on Church Road.
Ian Hewitt, Chairman of the All England Club

2020

Although the Wimbledon Championships were sadly cancelled 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

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 payout terms. So The AELTC didn't do it purely out of altruism :D.

However, we must credit 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 and recovered around £114m, making it a very sensible investment.

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
